Recap

Hawks 89, Pacers 86: Kyle Korver scored eight straight points during an 18-0 run and Jeff Teague hit the go-ahead 3-pointer as the Hawks rallied late to send visiting Indiana to its 10th consecutive loss in Atlanta. 

The Pacers led 83-69 after George Hill's bucket with 6:33 left and appeared headed for their first win in Atlanta since Dec. 22, 2006, but they didn't score again until Lance Stephenson's 3-pointer with 21 seconds left snapped an 18-0 run and pulled Indiana within 87-86. 

Al Horford led the Hawks with 16 points and grabbed nine rebounds and Teague added 15 points, six rebounds and six assists. Hill and David West scored 20 points apiece to lead the Pacers.

Josh Smith (ankle) returned to the lineup after missing one game and had 11 points, seven assists and five rebounds for Atlanta, which has won 12 of the past 14 meetings with the Pacers overall. 

Indiana topped 40 percent shooting (41.2) for the first time since a season-opening win at Toronto but managed only nine points in the fourth quarter. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: Pacers officials announced Wednesday that star F Danny Granger is expected to miss up to three months after receiving an injection in his left knee to treat patellar tendinosis. Granger led the Pacers with 18.7 points per game last season. … Eight of Korver's 13 points came during the pivotal stretch in the fourth, as he buried a pair of 3-pointers and a jumper from just inside the arc to cut the lead to 83-82. … The Pacers committed a season-low 15 turnovers, well below their league-worst average of 20.25 per game.
