NBA Game Summary - Denver at Atlanta



(Saturday, March 15th)

Final Score: Atlanta 97, Denver 92

Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Millsap scored 24 points and pulled down 11 rebounds to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 97-92 win over the Denver Nuggets.

Kyle Korver finished with 18 points on 4-of-4 shooting from 3-point range and Jeff Teague added 15 points and 10 assists for the Hawks, winners in three straight.

Pero Antic scored 16 points and DeMarre Carroll added 11 points, 10 rebounds and four steals in the win.

Kenneth Faried scored 25 points and Wilson Chandler added 12 for the Nuggets, who had won two straight entering the contest.

Ty Lawson had 11 assists and nine rebounds, but totaled just two points on 0- of-12 shooting from the field.

Denver committed 21 turnovers.

"When you play on the road, you can't turn the ball over 21 times," said Nuggets coach Brian Shaw.

Antic gave the Hawks a 58-37 lead after burying a 3-pointer 34 seconds into the third quarter. Later in the period, the Nuggets used a 14-2 run, capped with a Randy Foye triple, to make it 62-55 with five minutes to go.

Atlanta managed to push its lead to 14, but Evan Fournier beat the buzzer to cap an 8-0 surge that made it 77-71 entering the final frame.

The Nuggets took an 87-84 lead with 4:43 to go, but Teague nailed a jumper with 1:51 remaining to put the Hawks ahead 91-89. Faried knocked down a pair of free throws moments later to give the visitors a one-point edge, but the Hawks scored the final six points of the game.

"(The Nuggets) found some energy somewhere. Give them credit, they fought back. I'm glad we came away with the win," said Millsap.

The Hawks raced out to a 19-6 lead following Carroll's 3-pointer with 7:08 left in the opening frame. Denver cut it to eight, 19-11, but Atlanta managed to push its spread back to double digits and owned a 28-15 lead after 12 minutes.

Faried had the Nuggets within six, 38-32, with 4:11 remaining in the first half, but the Hawks closed the frame on a 15-5 run to take a 53-37 edge into the break.

"Just a case of too little too late. We were real lethargic in the first half. We needed to play the way we played that fourth quarter and the end of the third quarter at the start of the game," said Shaw.

Game Notes

The Hawks shot 43.8 percent from 3-point range (14-for-32) ... Atlanta scored 25 points off turnovers ... Denver outscored the Hawks 44-26 in the paint ... J.J. Hickson had 11 points and 10 rebounds and Fournier finished with 10 points off the bench for Denver.
