ATLANTA (AP) — Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll each scored 20 points as the Atlanta Hawks bounced back from a rare loss by becoming the first NBA team to 50 wins, scoring a season high in beating the Sacramento Kings 130-105 Monday night.
Resting three starters, the East-leading Hawks (50-13) were beaten by the lowly 76ers over the weekend to snap a six-game winning streak. Korver didn’t even make the trip to Philadelphia, the Hawks hoping the rest would help snap him out of a shooting slump since the All-Star break.
Boy, did it ever. Korver went 6 of 8 from 3-point range.
The Hawks led 76-54 at the break — their most prolific half of the season. They finished with 42 assists, best in the NBA this season.
Rudy Gay scored 23 points as the Kings lost their fourth in a row.
