ATLANTA (AP) - Al Horford and DeMarre Carroll scored 20 points each to help the Atlanta Hawks match a franchise record with their 57th win, beating the Brooklyn Nets 131-99 on Saturday night.

However, the Hawks lost forward Paul Millsap to a right shoulder injury in a collision with Brooklyn's Earl Clark with 1:52 left in the first half. There was no foul called on the play which left Millsap sprawled on the floor. He grimaced as he held his shoulder while walking off the court, finishing with eight points and five assists.

Jeff Teague added had 17 points as Atlanta never trailed while ending the Nets' season-best six-game winning streak. The Hawks looked fresh after three off days. The Nets, coming off Friday night's win over Toronto, couldn't match the Hawks' energy.

Bojan Bogdanovic led Brooklyn with 19 points.
