Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Jeff Teague and Zaza Pachulia each recorded
double-doubles as the surging Atlanta Hawks posted their fifth consecutive win
with a 104-93 triumph over the slumping Los Angeles Clippers at Philips Arena.
Both players finished with 19 points, with Pachulia adding 12 rebounds and
Teague notching 11 assists to help the Hawks earn their longest win streak
since a 5-gamer from Jan. 2-12, 2011.
Three others scored in double figures for the Hawks, who shot a solid 50.7
percent and never trailed since the initial stages of the second quarter.
Louis Williams netted 18 points off the bench, while Josh Smith had 17 and Al
Horford contributed 10 to go along with eight rebounds.
The Clippers were dealt a third straight defeat following a stretch of six

despite a 22-point, 11-rebound, 7-assist effort from Blake Griffin and 19
points out of Chris Paul.
