Atlanta wins 8th straight

ATLANTA - Christian Laettner scored 22 points, Dikembe Mutombo dominated at the defensive end and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Orlando Magic 78-67 Thursday night for their eighth consecutive victory. The Hawks tied the Chicago Bulls for the longest current streak in the NBA, and won their 15th in a row at the Omni. The Magic, which had a three-game winning streak, led 38-37 at halftime, but Atlanta took control with a stifling defensive effort in the third quarter.
