Recap


Hawks 103, Jazz 95: Ivan Johnson hit the go-ahead layup with 1:22 remaining as host Atlanta rallied to beat Utah and halt a five-game losing skid.

Devin Harris had a season-high 24 points and Josh Smith added 15 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for the Hawks, who trailed by as many as 15 points in the second half. Lou Williams contributed 14 points in a reserve role as Atlanta shot 55.6 percent from the field.

Randy Foye knocked down six 3-pointers as part of a 25-point effort for the Jazz, who lost for just the second time in the past six games. Al Jefferson added 23 points and 10 rebounds and Paul Millsap chipped in 20 points and 13 boards.

Foye hit four 3-pointers to guide the Jazz to a 47-43 halftime lead, and continued his hot outside shooting in the third quarter. He led off the period with a 3-pointer from the left sideline, then connected from the same spot just over nine minutes later to extend the lead to 15.

Atlanta closed the quarter on an 8-1 run and carried that momentum into the fourth, closing to within a pair on Harris' three-point play with 4:22 remaining. Johnson's running layup put the Hawks ahead, Smith's 18-footer stretched the advantage inside the final minute and Williams put the game away with a long 3-pointer with 29 seconds left.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Atlanta prevailed despite shooting just 14-for-23 from the free-throw line. ... The Hawks enjoyed a 42-16 edge in bench scoring. ... Jazz SF Marvin Williams missed his second straight game with right knee inflammation.
