Korver dunks, Hawks win 14th in a row, 110-91 over Pacers
ATLANTA (AP) — DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague each scored 17 points to lead a balanced offense, Kyle Korver dunked for the first time in more than two years, and the Atlanta Hawks tied a franchise record with their 14th straight victory, routing the Indiana Pacers 110-91 on Wednesday night.
With the victory, the Hawks improved to a stunning 35-8 and Mike Budenholzer clinched a spot as the Eastern Conference coach in next month’s All-Star Game in New York City.
Budenholzer should be taking several players with him. The Hawks romped to their 28th victory in the last 30 games, showing the kind of teamwork that has become their trademark in a season that no one saw coming.
Ten players had scored by halftime. All five starters were in double figures, and Pero Antic also had 12.
CJ Miles led the Pacers with 18 points. Indiana shot just 39.7 percent.
