The Atlanta Hawks beat the Phoenix Suns 107-94 at home at Philips Arena. This was the second and final meeting between these two teams this regular season. With the win, the Hawks improved to 36-29 on the season and 1-1 in the regular season series with the Suns. The starters for the Hawks were Devin Harris and Kyle Korver in the backcourt, DeShawn Stevenson and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center. Zaza Pachulia (sore right Achilles) and Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) were the two inactives for the Hawks. Jeff Teague, who missed the Hawks' previous game with a sprained left ankle, played but didn't start. The leading scorer for the Hawks was Josh Smith, with 17 points. He also grabbed 11 boards and dished out seven dimes, giving him a double-double on the night. Al Horford and Kyle Korver added 16 points apiece, with Horford also grabbing 11 rebounds, giving him a double-double as well. Devin Harris contributed 15 points and five assists. DeShawn Stevenson had 12 points. The leading scorer for the Suns was Goran Dragic, with a game-high 21 points. In the first quarter, Dragic scored 10 points. Johan Petro nailed a three from the top of the key off an inbounds pass with 0.5 seconds remaining. Markieff Morris, however, hit a fadeaway shot from the right corner off of a heave from Jared Dudley, and the Hawks' lead was cut to four. In the second quarter, DeShawn Stevenson hit a buzzer-beating trey, and the Hawks extended their lead to 57-46 at the break. The Suns never led in the second half, and the Hawks won by 13. I think there were two keys to this Hawks victory. First off, their ball movement was excellent. All five starters scored in double-figures, and the Hawks had 27 assists on the night. Secondly, the Hawks played great defense, stealing the ball a season-high 14 times and forcing 24 Phoenix turnovers. This resulted in a 29-5 advantage in fastbreak points for Atlanta. Great win for the Hawks to avenge the loss in Phoenix.
