The Atlanta Hawks badly needed a win, entering Monday night having lost 11 of their last 14 games.
Led by 26 points from Kyle Korver, the Hawks earned that win, holding off the Utah Jazz for a 112-110 victory at the Energy Solutions Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah Monday night.
With the Hawks trailing 96-93 after a Trey Burke three-pointer with 3:47 to go, the Hawks used a 16-4 run to take the lead and put the game away.
In his first game in Utah since leaving the Jazz to sign with the Hawks in the offseason, Paul Millsap had a big night. Millsap, who spent the first seven years of his career with the Jazz, finally looked like himself again in his third game back on the floor after missing five games with a knee injury. He had 23 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.
Burke led the Jazz with 23 points and four assists.
Former Hawk Marvin Williams had 18 points and six rebounds while Gordon Hayward had 13 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and two steals.
The win improves the Hawks to 27-35 while the loss drops the Jazz to 22-42.
