NBA roundup: Teague scores 34 in Hawks’ OT win

Associated Press

Hawks 118, Raptors 113

Jeff Teague equaled his career best with 34 points, Paul Millsap had the first triple-double of his career and the host Atlanta Hawks extended their longest winning streak of the season to five in a row.

Millsap had 19 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Hawks, who have bounced back after losing 14 of 15 to strengthen their hold on the final playoff spot in the East.

The Hawks overcame an early 13-point deficit in a game that went back and forth in the final quarter. Millsap missed a chance to win it at the end of regulation, but Teague knocked down four free throws in the closing seconds to clinch it for Atlanta.

DeMar DeRozan led the Raptors with 29 points, but he had two crucial turnovers in the last minute of regulation, getting called for an offensive foul and slipping on another drive, losing the ball out of bounds.

The Hawks went ahead for good when Millsap found DeMarre Carroll all alone under the basket for the layup, which put Atlanta up 111-109 with 2:37 remaining and gave Millsap his 10th assist.

Toronto went more than 3½ minutes without scoring in the overtime, allowing the Hawks to hang on.

Kyle Korver added 16 points for Atlanta. DeRozan had a double-double, pulling down 10 rebounds, while Kyle Lowry chipped in with 20 points.
