Jazz at Hawks final score: Atlanta cruises 118-85

Lou Williams had 25 points off of the bench, Al Horford scored 23 points and Paul Millsap poured in 14 points and 10 rebounds as the Atlanta Hawks blew out the Utah Jazz 118-85 Friday night.

Alec Burks and Enes Kanter led the Jazz with 13 points apiece. Gordon Hayward, who scored 11 points, was the only Jazz starter to score in double figures.

The Jazz, who were in Miami to play the Heat on Monday (a 117-94 loss) and Orlando to play the Magic on Wednesday (a 86-82 victory), looked gassed on Friday. They shot just 35-of-94 from the field (37.2%) and three-of-18 from beyond the arc (16.7%).

The Hawks scored early and often, never trailed and built a 14-point lead by the end of the first quarter. Simply put, the Jazz never stood a chance.

All 12 Hawks’ players scored. They shot 45-of-86 from the field (52.3%) and hit 10 of their 26 three-pointers (38.5%). Kyle Korver hit two three-pointers to extend his NBA record to 96 straight games with a three.

The Hawks are now 15-12 while the Jazz are 7-22.
