ATLANTA - Al Horford isnt missing many shots these days for the Atlanta Hawks. William Carrier Jersey .Not that it would matter much if he did. The Hawks just keep winning.We always push each other to play hard, Horford said. Thats why I feel like this group is a little different when it comes to that.Paul Millsap scored 20 points and Horford added 19 to help Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta to a 112-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, extending the Hawks franchise record with their 16th straight win.Jeff Teague finished with 15 points and seven of Atlantas 30 assists as the Hawks won for the 30th time in 32 games.Thaddeus Young had 26 points and Mo Williams added 20 for Minnesota. The Timberwolves, who are last in the Western Conference, have lost four straight and 20 of 22.The range of Horford, as a 6-foot-10 centre-forward, is hurting opponents all over the court. Hes hitting long jumpers, occasional 3-pointers and scoring around the basket to cause matchup problems.Horford missed just one of nine field-goal attempts and is shooting nearly 74 per cent and averaging 18 points over his last seven games.I have a good rhythm right now and Im taking open shots, Horford said. My teammates are setting me up. Its easy.The Hawks took their first double-digit lead on Mike Scotts three-point play at the 9:31 mark of the second quarter, and their biggest advantage was 18 on a 3 by Millsap late in the second.Minnesota trimmed the lead to eight several times in the second half before pulling within six twice on Andrew Wiggins turnaround jumper and Youngs putback in the closing minutes.But DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver hit consecutive 3s to push lead back up to 12, and Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders called timeout with 2:08 remaining.Saunders said everything he had heard and seen regarding the Hawks turned out be legitimate.Until you are there and you play against it, you dont really understand, Saunders said. It took us almost a half to understand how good they really were. Theyre the best combination offensive and defensive team weve played. The second half we went out, we competed. Thats all I can ask.Young was pleased to get to play as a swingman, thus getting more freedom on offence, when Saunders used a bigger front line.It gives me an opportunity to see the floor, being on the wing, Young said. You can see the guys cutting and see the whole floor so its easier to make plays.Korver and Carroll combined for 27 points, nine rebounds and six assists.Nikola Pekovic had 15 points and Wiggins added 12 for Minnesota.Millsap went 8 for 12 from the field and finished with five rebounds, six assists, four steals and one turnover.___TIP-INSTimberwolves: They outrebounded the Hawks by eight, but still lost for the 12th straight time in Atlanta.Hawks: Atlanta, which began the day with the Easts best home record, improved to 20-3 at Philips Arena. ...

Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?" The accusation by Kim Myers provided a bizarre twist during the trial of the world-famous double-amputee Olympian, who is facing 25 years to life in prison if convicted of premeditated murder for shooting dead Steenkamp, a 29-year-old model, at his home last year.ORLANDO, Fla. -- Road victories dont come easily for the Atlanta Hawks. Not even against one of the NBAs worst teams. Atlanta lost a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter before coming back to hit six free throws in the final 40 seconds and secure a 112-109 victory over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night. Paul Millsap had 24 points and Jeff Teague added 23 to help the Hawks earn just their seventh road victory of the season. "I wish they could put a leadership column on the stat sheet. Tonight when we got down, Paul was the one that pulled them together," Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer said. "All the other stuff is great ... but I think its his leadership, and I think our group needs that going forward." Seven players finished in double-figures for Atlanta, which has won two straight and has a day off before hosting San Antonio on Friday. Millsap stayed confident despite losing the big lead, that it wasnt going to be their latest road shortcoming. "We were falling apart a little bit," he said. "They made a nice little run. We didnt want to just call it quits then. So we had to regroup, get back on the right track." Victor Oladipo led Orlando with 24 points. Tobias Harris had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson finished with 17 points. For the Magic, the loss was the latest setback for a team that was hoping to build on a win over Boston on Sunday that snapped a 10-game losing streak. Theyve now started another streak with back-to-back losses to Brooklyn on Tuesday and the Hawks. The Magic have lost 12 of their last 13 overall, and fell to 1-14 this season without starting centre Nik Vucevic, who continues to recover from a concussion. "Its tough for us to make shots down the stretch," Harris said. "We had some good opportunities, we just couldnt convert." The Hawks entered the game just 6-13 on the road, an issue that coach Mike Budenholzer said could be solved by showing more attention to detail and mental toughness. They would need those attributes late against the Magic. The Magic fell behind by as many as 11 in the first half, before trimming the Hawks lead down to 60-59 in the opening minutes of the third quarter. Luca Sbisa Jersey. . Atlanta responded by hitting nine of its first 16 shots in the quarter to ignite a 22-4 run that opened up a 19-point lead at 82-63. But Orlando closed the quarter with its own 17-6 spurt and trailed by eight entering the final period. The Magics momentum continued in the fourth, and they took their first lead of the game, 93-92, on a dunk by Kyle OQuinn. They were leading 98-92 when they lost Doron Lamb, who fouled out after scoring seven quick points in the quarter. With Lamb gone, Orlando got a little sloppy offensively and the Hawks closed to 102-100 on Shelvin Macks layup with 3:47 to play. After a pair of lead changes Atlanta went back in front, 110-109, on a pair of free throws by Pero Antic with 22.8 seconds to play. Orlando got Glen Davis free for a short jumper that bounced off the back of the rim. Antic got the rebound, was fouled, and hit two more at the foul line with just 11.1 seconds left. The Hawks never trailed in the first half and took a 60-56 lead into halftime. Both teams shot above 50 per cent in the half, but the Hawks held a 36-24 edge on scoring in the paint. Millsap led all scorers with 14 first-half points. Teague said Millsap continues to carry the Hawks since Al Horford was sidelined for the season with a torn right pectoral muscle. "He does that every night, Do-It-All-Paul," Teague said. "Hes been the ultimate player for us this year, and he did it again tonight. If he doesnt make (the All-Star team) it would be highway robbery, I think." NOTES: Atlantas Kyle Korver extended his NBA record to 110 consecutive games with at least one made 3-pointer. ... Orlando fell to 1-24 when its opponent scores 100 or more points. ... Vucevic missed his ninth straight game due to a concussion. Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said he isnt sure where Vucevic is in the leagues concussion protocol, saying only that "Hes still in the doctors hands."
