Lou Williams added 18, Mike Scott scored 14 and DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver added 12 apiece for the Hawks, winners in three of their last four games. Elton Brand had 10 points off the bench in the win.

"I think this is a tough league and we didn't play well last night. Our group didn't hang their heads and they moved forward. That's what we talked about. We want to move forward," Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said.
