GAME RECAP

Will Perdue tied a career high with 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in his first start of the season as the San Antonio Spurs shut down the Atlanta Hawks, 90-76.

The Spurs, with forward Sean Elliott injured, started a frontline of 7-footers and held the Hawks to 30 points in the first half -- just two above Atlanta's all-time franchise record.

Rookie Tim Duncan scored 23 points and David Robinson added 12 as San Antonio's massive frontcourt combined for 54 points and 30 rebounds.

"We experimented with the big lineup tonight," Robinson said. "It really presents all kinds of problems for the other team. It was fun to see the new look."

Eldridge Recasner scored 16 points and Steve Smith added 13 for the Hawks, who lost for just the second time in the last nine games.

Boosted by the presence of Perdue, San Antonio scored the first 10 points. Perdue's dunk made it 10-0 with 9:10 left in the opening quarter and the Spurs went on to a 27-12 lead after Duncan knocked down a 20-footer with 3.4 seconds remaining in the period.

"We came out with a lot of energy tonight and we really took advantage of a team that played two games in two nights," Perdue said. "We limited their second shots and got out and had some easy baskets. We got some putbacks and had a lot of points in the paint. That's what can happen with a big lineup out there."

Atlanta was only slightly better in the second quarter. The Hawks scored 18 points to close within 50-30 and barely eclipsed the 28 points they managed in the first half against Cleveland on March 24th, 1995.

The Hawks were held below the 20-point mark in the third quarter as well, as the Spurs outscored them, 26-16. Duncan's 15-footer with a minute left in the period gave San Antonio a 76-46 edge entering the fourth quarter. That was the Spurs' largest lead and the fewest points they have allowed through three quarters this season.

Atlanta finally got it going in the fourth. A layup by Greg Anderson ignited a 14-2 burst to open the period and the Hawks closed within 80-68 on Anthony Miller's layup with 4:06 to play. But Monty Williams scored eight of San Antonio's 14 fourth-quarter points to keep the Spurs safely ahead.

"(The big lineup) didn't do anything to change our game," Atlanta coach Lenny Wilkens said. "We just didn't shoot well, didn't rotate on defense; we didn't rebound when we needed to. Against a lineup like that you don't drive to the basket. But if you execute well and get the ball up the floor than you can get the shots you want. We just didn't hit any of those shots tonight."

Jaren Jackson finished with nine points for San Antonio, which shot 45 percent (35-of-78) from the field and held a 48-38 rebounding advantage. The Spurs have won 12 straight at home and are 16-3 at the Alamodome this season.

Miller and Chris Crawford had nine points apiece for the Hawks, who shot just 35 percent (26-of-74) and misfired on all seven of their three-point attempts.
