Hawks run past Clippers, 107-97

ATLANTA (AP) - Kyle Korver scored a season-high 23 points and tied the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer in the Atlanta Hawks' 107-97 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.

Paul Millsap finished with 25 points and Al Horford added 21 to help the Hawks snap a two-game losing streak.

Blake Griffin scored 24 points and Chris Paul had 19 points and 11 assists as the Clippers lost their second straight.

Korver, returning from a bruised rib that sidelined him the last four games, tied Dana Barros' NBA 18-year-old record by hitting a 3-pointer in his 89th straight game. Barros set the mark during stints with Philadelphia and Boston from Dec. 23, 1994, to Jan. 10, 1996.

He made his first attempt in the game's first minute and finished 6 for 9 beyond the arc.

Korver drew a foul from Paul as he hit a 3 from the right corner and finished the four-point play to make it 96-83 with 5:06 remaining

A little over a minute later, Horford fed Korver on the left wing for a 3 that gave the Hawks a 99-88 lead.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers pulled his top four starters and sixth man Jamal Crawford after DeMarre Carroll's two free throws made it 103-88 with 2:54 remaining.

Los Angeles was beginning a seven-game road trip and has battled several injuries early in the season.

Willie Green scored nine points while starting his second straight game in place of J.J. Redick, who could miss six to eight weeks with a broken bone in his right hand and torn ligaments in his right wrist.

Redick averaged 15.8 points in 17 games, tied with Crawford for the team's third-best average behind Griffin and Paul.

Paul, playing his second straight game with a strained right hamstring, combined with Crawford and starting forward Jared Dudley to go 1 for 12 on 3-point attempts.

The Clippers are also playing without forward Matt Barnes, who has a torn retina in his left eye.

Paul's 16-footer cut the lead to 79-74 early in the fourth, but Lou Williams responded with a 3 from the right baseline on Atlanta's ensuing possession, and Millsap's runner in the lane with 9:10 remaining pushed the lead back to 10.

The Hawks used a 22-9 run in the first quarter to go up 29-17 on Shelvin Mack's runner. Los Angeles pulled within six early in the second on consecutive jumpers by Crawford, but Atlanta took its biggest first-half lead at 15 on Horford's dunk with 1:19 left in the second.

Carroll's 3 early in the third gave the Hawks a 16-point lead, but the Clippers closed within seven on Griffin's putback at the 8:28 mark.

Crawford scored 13 points, but went 0-for-5 from the field in the second half.

NOTES: Hawks rookie G Dennis Schroder, the NBA's 17th overall draft pick, has been assigned to Bakersfield of the development league. Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said the 20-year-old German wasn't going to get enough playing time behind Teague, Williams and Mack. ... The Hawks have won four straight at home against the Clippers and six of the previous eight overall. ... Rivers, in his first season with Los Angeles, was seeking his 600th career win.
