Recap: Atlanta vs. Sacramento

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Korver extended his historic run to 95 straight games with at least one 3-pointer made, hitting 8-of-10 from beyond the arc en route to 28 points to lead the Atlanta Hawks in a 124-107 victory over the Sacramento Kings at Philips Arena.

Korver set a season high in points and tied his career high in 3s made.

Al Horford scored 25 and had 10 rebounds and Jeff Teague had 18 points, a career high-tying 15 assists and eight rebounds for the Hawks, who have won five of their last seven games. Paul Millsap added 14 points and eight rebounds.

"I just really wanted to get two rebounds," said Teague with a smile. "I wasn't thinking about a triple-double but I really wanted the two boards. We were talking about it before the game and someone said I should get eight or 12 rebounds, I didn't know until someone told me at the end of the game that I was that close."

DeMarcus Cousins scored 28 points and had seven rebounds, Rudy Gay poured in 22, and Isaiah Thomas had 20 points and 10 assists for Sacramento, which has lost four of its last five.

The third quarter had 14 lead changes and seven ties. Neither team gained an advantage of more than five points.

Cousins made a jumper and completed a three-point play with 7:33 left in the third to start a 5-0 run to give the Kings the largest lead of the quarter. Atlanta answered immediately with a 6-0 run capped off with a Korver 3-pointer to make the score 75-74.

Later, Sacramento scored the final four points to take a two-point lead, 87-85, into the fourth.

A Mike Scott trey 1:54 into the fourth gave the Hawks a two-point lead, 93-91. After Atlanta regained the lead it did not look back. The Hawks ended the game on a 17-7 surge and cruised to the finish.

"I don't even know where to begin," said Kings head coach Michael Malone. "I guess I'm not doing a good enough job of giving them a gameplan that they can execute, and I'm not doing a good enough job of explaining who are the players that can make shots. So I have to do a better job of communicating with my team, so they know full well who we're playing, who their shooters are and what the coverages are so we don't give up 39 points in the fourth quarter."

Horford began an 11-2 run with a reverse layup two minutes into the game. The surge made it 15-6 and the Hawks had a 28-26 lead going into the second quarter.

Atlanta led by as many as seven in the second quarter, 47-40, after a Teague layup with 4:34 left but the Kings ended the half with a 54-53 lead.
