Recap: Atlanta vs. Sacramento

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Kyle Korver hit six of Atlanta's franchise record 20 3-pointers, and the Hawks picked up their 50th win of the season with a 130-105 rout of the Sacramento Kings on Monday.

Korver finished with 20 points for the East-leading Hawks, who notched their 13th straight win over the Kings.

"We have a nice little lead in the standings, but we don't want to regress," said Korver. "Hopefully, we will still win some more games."

DeMarre Carroll netted 20 points, all in the first half, while Al Horford and Jeff Teague chipped in 18 points apiece for an Atlanta team that totaled 42 assists, the most in an NBA game this season. Teague led the way with 13 assists.

Rudy Gay paced Sacramento with 23 points, followed by Ray McCallum's 15. DeMarcus Cousins had 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Kings, who have lost four straight after opening their season-high eight-game trek with a win at New York.

"We never got in control of the defensive end of the court," Sacramento head coach George Karl said. "They got everything they wanted."

A Carroll 3-pointer sparked a 13-2 run which gave the Hawks a 33-20 lead at the end of the first quarter.

Atlanta put up 43 points in the second quarter while shooting 68 percent. Teague hit a running jumper off a turnover by Gay to make it 76-54 at halftime.

The Hawks reached the century mark on a Teague 3-pointer with three minutes left in the third quarter, and they went on to lead by as many as 28 down the stretch.
