Hawks' Korver (back) misses 3rd straight game


Posted Mar 24, 2014 8:14 PM

ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks guard Kyle Korver is sitting out his third straight game because of back spasms.

Korver wasn't in uniform Monday night as the Hawks hosted the Phoenix Suns, looking to break a two-game losing streak. Shelvin Mack started in his place.

Korver is averaging 12.3 points and set an NBA record by making a 3-pointer in 127 consecutive games.

Coach Mike Budenholzer says the Hawks are hopeful of getting Korver back for Wednesday's game at Minnesota, but they have no timetable for his return.
