ATLANTA (AP) -- Tony Parker had 23 points and 12 assists, and the San Antonio Spurs held off the short-handed Atlanta Hawks 98-93 on Saturday night for their fourth straight victory.
Matt Bonner added 17 points, and Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter each had 14 for the Spurs.
The Hawks announced about 90 minutes before the game that guard Lou Williams faces season-ending surgery for a torn ACL in his right knee.
Then they lost guard Devin Harris to a sprained left ankle in the third quarter.
Josh Smith led the Hawks with 21 points. Kyle Korver, who started at shooting guard, had 19 points.
Spurs forward Tim Duncan was not in uniform as he was given the night off by coach Gregg Popovich.
