NBA Game Summary - Atlanta at Sacramento



(Tuesday, November 5th)

Final Score: Atlanta 105, Sacramento 100

Sacramento, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Horford scored 10 of his 27 points in the fourth quarter, including five in the last 1:04 as the Atlanta Hawks held on for a 105-100 win over the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday night.

The Hawks nearly coughed up a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter but Horford and Paul Millsap helped them avoid a collapse after Sacramento, sparked by Isaiah Thomas, got within a point.

Atlanta extended its winning streak over the Kings to 11 straight games since Sacramento's last win in the series on Feb. 20, 2008.

"It got a little closer than we would have liked, but that's the NBA," said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer.

Millsap had 25 points and 11 rebounds and Horford collected 10 boards for the Hawks, who snapped a six-game road losing streak dating back to last season and including their playoff series against Indiana.

It was Atlanta's fifth win in their last 19 games away from home, including the postseason. Jeff Teague had 18 points and 10 assists in the win.

Thomas had 18 of his 26 points in the fourth quarter for the Kings but missed a contested 3-pointer in the final seconds with a chance to tie the game.

Marcus Thornton and Ben McLemore added 15 points apiece for the Kings, who have lost three in a row since opening the season with a win over Denver.

Sacramento started and finished strong, leading 32-25 after the first quarter and outscoring Atlanta 35-23 in the fourth. In between, the Kings gave up 57 points and scored just 33.

"Good teams play 48 minutes and right now we're a team that plays maybe 24, 28 minutes," said Kings coach Mike Malone. "That's why we're 1-3 right now and we have a lot of work to do."

An extended 30-12 Kings run ended on Thomas' steal and layup, getting as close as 96-95 with 2:45 left in the game.

Millsap's runner at the other end, Thornton's 3-point miss from the corner and Millsap's free throw built Atlanta's lead to four with two minutes left.

In two frenetic series', the teams exchanged steals twice in the span of a minute. The second one led to Thornton's 3-pointer from the high left side with 32.2 seconds remaining to cut a six-point Atlanta lead to three.

After Millsap was short on a shot, Thomas got the ball on an inbounds play and missed a 3 under tight defense by Millsap and Teague on the high left side.

Horford's free throws with 2.3 seconds left sealed the win.

The Kings shot 59.1 percent in the first quarter to lead by as many as 10 and 57.9 percent in the fourth as they mounted their comeback. The Hawks held them to 25 percent shooting in the second quarter to take a 54-45 lead into the break, and to 30.4 percent shooting in the third to lead 82-65 going into the fourth.

"We want to become a good defensive team," Budenholzer said. "The first and fourth quarters are the ones we can look at on film."

Game Notes

John Salmons had 13 points for Sacramento and DeMarcus Cousins scored 11 ... The Kings will play a home-and-home with the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday and Saturday, starting in Portland ... The Hawks finish a three-game road trip in Denver on Thursday.
