Spurs vs. Hawks final score: Atlanta comes up short 98-93

Kevin C. Cox

The Atlanta Hawks dropped their second straight game falling 98-93 to the San Antonio Spurs.

The Atlanta Hawks dropped their second straight game and may have lost yet another player to injury. Tony Parker scored 23 points and handed out 12 assists to help the Spurs get past the Hawks.

San Antonio got out of the gates quickly taking a 25-16 lead after one. The Hawks chipped away and finally took the lead in the third quarter behind the play of Josh Smith and Devin Harris. Atlanta lost Harris early in the fourth quarter to an ankle injury. He had to be helped to the locker room and did not return. The loss of Harris just adds to Atlanta's growing list of injury concerns.

Josh Smith led the Hawks with 21 points on 8-15 shooting. Kyle Korver went 5-8 from three-point range on his way to 19 points. Jeff Teague went just 6-16 from the field but finished with 16 points and eight assists but also had five turnovers. Harris finished with 13 points off the bench before leaving with his injury. Al Horford scored nine points but grabbed a game-high 15 rebounds.

Parker's 23 led the Spurs while Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter added 14 points each. Matt Bonner chipped in 17 points off the bench. San Antonio played without Manu Ginobli who is out with a hamstring injury and Tim Duncan whom Gregg Popovich elected to rest in the second game of a back-to-back.

The Hawks get a much needed off day to heal up on Sunday before they are back in action for a Monday matinee against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
