Hawks use balance to win showdown with Warriors, 124-116

AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta's balance overcame Golden State's one-two backcourt punch as Jeff Teague's 23 points led seven scorers in double figures and the Hawks beat the Warriors 124-116 in a showdown between the NBA's two conference leaders.

The matchup did not disappoint. It was tied at halftime and Atlanta led by four entering the final period.

Back-to-back 3-pointers by Mike Scott and Kyle Korver, who each had 17 points, helped stretch the lead.

The one-two punch of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson did do some damage. Thompson scored 29 points and Curry had 26 for Golden State, which had its three-game winning streak snapped.

Al Horford had 12 points and 14 rebounds despite having his playing time limited by foul trouble in the second half.
