Spurs 102, Hawks 100
Tim Duncan hit the game-winning basket with four-10ths of a second to go, giving the San Antonio Spurs a 102-100 win over the Atlanta Hawks.
The 37-year-old turned in a vintage performance that included 23 points and 21 rebounds.
The Spurs (15-3) earn their 16th consecutive victory over the Hawks in San Antonio. The last time Atlanta won in the Alamo City was Feb. 15, 1997.
The Hawks (9-10) worked hard to get first-year head coach Mike Budenholzer the win. It was his first trip back to San Antonio, where he spent 19 years, first as a video coordinator and as Spurs coach Gregg Popovich's lead assistant.
