Recap


Hawks 93, Raptors 92:
Al Horford collected 22 points, 10 rebounds and six assists and Josh Smith added 20 points and 11 boards to help host Atlanta rally from a 13-point deficit for its eighth win in its last nine meetings with Toronto.

Kyle Korver went 5-for-9 from 3-point range en route to 17 points for the Hawks, who have won three straight home games after trailing by double digits in each. 

DeMar DeRozan scored 23 points and John Lucas added 19 off the bench for the Raptors, who have dropped three straight and eight of 10. Toronto fell to 5-19 on the road. 

The lead changed hands six times in the final five minutes, with the last lead change coming when Smith threaded a bullet pass to Horford for a dunk. The Raptors had two shots to win it during a wild final possession, but Alan Anderson missed a jumper and DeRozan was stripped by Horford on his way up for a follow attempt.

It was tight for most of the first half until Lowry scored the last five points of an 11-0 run to give the Raptors a 13-point advantage and they took a 55-45 lead into halftime. The Hawks charged back in the third, outscoring the Raptors 30-14 during the period and using a 14-2 spurt to regain the lead. 

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Raptors acquired SF Rudy Gay and C Hamed Haddadi from Memphis in a three-team deal that sent PF Ed Davis and a second-round draft pick to the Grizzlies and PG Jose Calderon to Detroit. … Korver has made a 3-pointer in 39 consecutive games, three shy of Mookie Blaylock's franchise record. … Atlanta improved to 21-1 when taking a lead into the fourth quarter and 19-3 when it has at least 24 assists.
