Kyle Korver hit eight of his 10 three-point attempts and finished with 28 points, leading the Atlanta Hawks to a 124-107 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.
Al Horford had 25 points, 10 rebounds and five assists and Jeff Teague had 18 points, 15 assists and eight rebounds for the Hawks, who outscored the Kings 39-20 in the final quarter.
DeMarcus Cousins led the Kings with 28 points, seven rebounds and six assists. Rudy Gay had 22 points on another surprisingly efficient night (eight-of-13 from the field) and Isiah Thomas had 20 points and 10 assists.
Although Horford, who made two consecutive jumpers to blow the game open in the fourth quarter and Teague had huge games, the story of the night was obviously Korver’s shooting, although the rest of the Hawks went an impressive seven-of-15 from downtown. In total, the Hawks outscored the Kings, who hit just six of their 15 three-point attempts, by 27 from beyond the arc.
The win improves the Hawks to 14-12 and they are one of only three Eastern Conference teams (Indiana Pacers, Miami Heat) with a winning record. The Kings are 7-17.
