Recap


Hawks 109, Pacers 100: Lou Williams collected his third double-double with 21 points and a career-high 12 assists as shorthanded Atlanta defeated Indiana for the 11th consecutive time in the Peach State.

Al Horford shot 10-for-13 from the field to finish with 20 points and Zaza Pachulia had 17 points and 14 rebounds. Kyle Korver drilled four 3-pointers for the Hawks, who extended their winning streak to four games despite having Josh Smith (strained right hip flexor), Anthony Morrow (strained right hip) and Devin Harris (foot) on the sideline.

David West had 29 points to lead five players in double digits for the Pacers, who saw their four-game winning streak come to an end.

After Williams' 3-pointer gave the Hawks a 91-80 lead with just under 7 1/2 minutes to play, West highlighted the Pacers' 8-0 run with his second 3-pointer of the season.

Horford answered with a bucket before forcing a jump ball, prompting George Hill to show his frustration by slamming the ball on the floor. Hill was called for a technical foul and Jeff Teague scored eight of Atlanta's next 12 points to seal the win.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Teague, who had a career-high 27 points in Friday's 102-94 win over Cleveland, finished with 15. ... The Hawks shot a sizzling 61.5 percent (24-of-39) from the field during the first half. ... Indiana has not won in Atlanta since Dec. 22, 2006.
