Hawks win 58th game to set single-season franchise mark

ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Hawks set a single-season franchise high with their 58th victory, getting 16 points each from DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague in a 96-69 win Tuesday night over the Phoenix Suns.

Mike Muscala, starting for injured All-Star forward Paul Millsap, finished with 16 points and Al Horford added 14 for the Eastern Conference champion Hawks.

The Suns missed 31 of 40 shots from the field in the second half to score a season low.

Gerald Green, with 15 points, was the only Phoenix player to score in double figures. Eric Bledsoe, ejected in the third quarter for arguing with officials, led the Suns’ starters with nine points.

The 1986-87 and 1993-94 Hawks each won 57 games in the regular season.
