GAME RECAP

Alan Henderson scored eight of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and Mookie Blaylock contributed 15 and eight assists in his return to action as the Atlanta Hawks held on for a 103-93 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Terrell Brandon, who had 22 points and nine assists, sank two free throws to pull the Bucks within 93-89 with 1:58 to play. Henderson answered with a pair of foul shots and Eldridge Recasner drained a 17-footer with 1:08 to go, increasing the lead to 97-89.

Armon Gilliam and Brandon responded with two free throws apiece to trim the deficit back to four, but Atlanta's Steve Smith was 6-of-6 from the line down the stretch to preserve the win.

Blaylock, who was placed on the injured list on January 9th, had missed the last six games and nine overall this season with a strained groin.

"It was a great feeling to be out there playing with your team again, just to get into the groove," Blaylock said. "It felt good, my leg didn't hurt any. I guess that means I'm back and it's good to be back."

Bucks star forward Glenn Robinson, who scored 28 points in a 99-94 overtime victory over Atlanta on December 26th, missed the game with a viral infection. Robinson, who is expected to play Wednesday at Orlando, is the team's leading scorer at 22.9 points per game, good for third in the league.

Dikembe Mutombo had 16 points and 10 rebounds and Christian Laettner added 15 and nine in the final period to lead a season-high seven Hawks in double figures.

"The best part was that we went off the court at halftime and got back into the game," said Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens, whose team trailed throughout the first half. "Alan was terrific off the bench, as was Eldridge. We got good minutes from different people."

Atlanta, which had a six-game winning streak snapped Saturday with a 97-81 loss in New Jersey, was still without starting forward Tyrone Corbin and rookie guard Ed Gray. Corbin missed his second straight game due to a sore lower back and Gray was suspended earlier in the day for missing rehabilitation assignments.

Blaylock fed Chucky Brown, who had 12 points, for a jumper with 5:27 left in the third period to spark a pivotal 12-2 run. Blaylock's layup capped the burst and gave the Hawks a 68-66 edge.

"I was a little tired, my legs kind of got a little heavy on me, but other than that, it was just coming back and trying to get the chemistry that the team already had," Blaylock said. "Once we get everybody healthy, we'll be pretty tough to beat."

Mutombo scored seven points in the third quarter, including a free throw with 53 seconds left, when Atlanta took the lead for good, 69-68.

The Hawks went on for a 73-69 advantage heading into the fourth and led the rest of the way. A three-pointer by Ray Allen, who had 13 points, trimmed the deficit to 86-84 with five minutes remaining, but Henderson came back with a bucket.

Milwaukee was within 90-87 on Ervin Johnson's layup with 3:36 to go, but Recasner answered with a lay-in and Henderson hit a free throw. The Bucks, who have lost six straight games in Atlanta, got no closer than four points thereafter.

"We shot too many jumpers tonight, we didn't play a full game," Brandon said. "When you have a team on the ropes, you have to bury them."

Tyrone Hill chipped in 13 points and seven rebounds for Milwaukee, which has not won on the road in this series since November 18th, 1994. The Bucks fell to 0-12 when allowing 100 points or more.

"We just can't get a call around the basket, we just cannot get to the foul line," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "We just don't get the foul calls, it's baffling. We have that many plays around the hoop and come up empty."

The Bucks missed just four of their 23 free throws, while Atlanta connected on 31-of-40 from the line.

Brandon scored nine points in the first quarter and Milwaukee raced out to a 24-11 lead. The Hawks went without a field goal for the first 5:25 of the game, managing just two free throws during that stretch.

Henderson scored eight points during Atlanta's 19-8 run early in the second period, cutting the deficit to 34-30. The Hawks were within 47-45 at the half.

"I just try to come in the game with energy and get a chance to get some shots up," Henderson said. "I am gonna put them up and try to get them put down. Try to bring energy to the team, we were a little sluggish at first."
