ATLANTA, Georgia - Tony Parker had 23 points and 12 assists as the San Antonio Spurs held off the short-handed Atlanta Hawks 98-93 on Saturday night for their fourth straight NBA victory.

Matt Bonner added 17 points, and Kawhi Leonard and Tiago Splitter each had 14 for the Spurs, who gave forward Tim Duncan the night off.

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.

Williams was hurt on Friday at Brooklyn and the tear was found when Williams was examined on Saturday.

"We are extremely disappointed for Lou and our thoughts and support will be with him during his recovery," Hawks general manager Danny Ferry said.

Then the Hawks lost guard Devin Harris to a sprained left ankle in the third quarter.
