Spurs-Hawks Preview



San Antonio finally won a close game. Now the Spurs will see if they can maintain the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference standings.

After closing out its homestand with a much-needed win, San Antonio travels to Atlanta on Wednesday night to face a playoff-hungry Hawks team looking to extend its season-high winning streak at Philips Arena.

Tuesday's 107-106 victory over the Golden State Warriors was a welcome change for San Antonio (46-24), which had dropped three of four by seven total points.

``Definitely a relief,'' said Roger Mason, who made an 18-footer with 23.9 seconds remaining to help snap the Spurs' two-game skid. ``Those last few games stung.''

San Antonio, which avoided its first three-game slide since an 0-3 start, lost its Southwest Division lead with Sunday's 87-85 defeat to Houston, but regained it by a half-game later Tuesday night as the Rockets fell 99-86 at Utah.

``We're obviously going through a rough patch,'' said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, whose team improved to 17-10 in games decided by five or fewer points.

Tim Duncan scored 21 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as San Antonio capped its 2-2 homestand. The veteran forward has posted two consecutive double-doubles against the Hawks, including 19 points and 11 boards in a 95-89 win on Dec. 10.

Duncan, though, could get the night off in preparation for the playoffs
