Recap


Hawks 104, Clippers 93: Jeff Teague and Zaza Pachulia each recorded double-doubles and host Atlanta had little difficulty extending the NBA's longest active winning streak to five games.

Teague recorded his third double-double by scoring 19 points and handing out 11 assists. Pachulia dominated the low post by collecting 19 points and 12 rebounds for his first double-double of the season.

Reserve Lou Williams chipped in 18 points as the Hawks shot 50.7 percent and outscored the Clippers 83-69 over the final three quarters. Josh Smith poured in all of his 17 points in the second half, including a vicious dunk over Blake Griffin early in the third quarter that gave Atlanta an 18-point lead.

Griffin led the way for the Clippers with 22 points and 11 rebounds while Chris Paul had 19 points, seven assists and seven steals. Griffin only had three points and four boards in the second half as the Clippers dropped their third straight game.

Atlanta led by as many as 27 and briefly had its commanding lead put in jeopardy when Jamal Crawford scored five straight points for the Clippers to make it a 10-point game with 6:52 remaining. The Hawks responded with a 13-4 run that began with consecutive 3-pointers by Kyle Korver and Smith.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Pachulia collected five points and five rebounds in the fourth quarter of Friday's win in Charlotte, and his effort was rewarded with a place in the starting lineup for the fifth time this season. ... The Clippers received just 24 bench points Friday in Brooklyn and were even worse a night later as the reserves did not score in the first half and missed their first seven shots before Matt Barnes hit a 3-pointer late in the third. ... Atlanta committed 19 turnovers and has 69 in its last four contests.
