Recap


Spurs 98, Hawks 93:
Tony Parker racked up 23 points and 12 assists and Matt Bonner added a season-high 17 points off the bench as visiting San Antonio pulled away late for its fourth consecutive win. 

Tiago Splitter and Kawhi Leonard each scored 14 points for the Spurs, who snapped a three-game road losing streak to improve to 14-9 away from home. 

Josh Smith had 21 points and eight rebounds while Kyle Korver added 19 and eight for the Hawks, who have lost two straight and eight of 10. Jeff Teague chipped in 16 points and eight assists and Al Horford had nine points and a game-high 15 rebounds for Atlanta. 

The Hawks, already without guard Lou Williams for the rest of the season, were within 74-72 when Devin Harris hobbled off with a sprained left ankle with 10:19 left. 

The Spurs quickly pushed the lead out to 85-75 and didn't let Atlanta get closer than three points the rest of the way as they won for the 11th time in their last 12 games in Atlanta. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Williams will miss the remainder of the season after an MRI revealed a torn ACL in his right knee. He ranks third on the team with 14.1 points. … The Spurs were without key reserve Manu Ginobili, who missed his third straight game with a hamstring injury, and also gave veteran F Tim Duncan off on the second night of a back-to-back set. … Korver has made a 3-pointer in 34 consecutive games, the second-longest streak in Hawks history (Mookie Blaylock, 42).
