Notebook: Hawks 97, Nuggets 92


Matt Winkeljohn, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:32 AM - Updated Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:32 AM

THE FACT: Paul Millsap went for 24 points and 11 rebounds, and the Hawks overcame a huge rebounding deficit to beat the visiting Nuggets 97-92 to tie their season's best three-game winning streak.

THE LEAD: The Nuggets ended up with a 54-38 rebounding edge and outscored Atlanta 44-26 in the paint, but the Hawks won with the long ball after shooting 14-for-32 on 3-pointers to stretch the franchise record to 30 games with double-digit treys made.

For the second straight game, every Atlanta starter made at least one from beyond the arc, and Kyle Korver (4-for-4, 18 points), center Pero Antic (3-for-8, 16 points) and DeMarre Carroll (3-for-8, 11 points) led the way from afar.

The Hawks (29-35) continue to hold the No. 8 spot in the East.

Denver forward Kenneth Faried had a game-high 25 points and Ty Lawson had 11 assists, yet the Nuggets were left sorely wanting help from their guards.

Lawson scored just two points while missing all 12 of his shots, fellow starter Randy Foye went 2-for-6 while scoring eight and reserve Aaron Brooks shot 3-for-9 for 11 points.

One night after winning in Miami, Denver (29-37) found offensive rhythm in the second half, where it put up 34 points and narrowed a 53-37 halftime deficit to 77-71 while Faried scored 11 points in the third period.

The Nuggets opened the fourth quarter with a 10-3 run to take an 81-80 lead when Darrell Arthur made a pair of free throws with 7:10 left in the game.

The lead changed hands six more times, and the game was tied six times from there.

Faried's three-point play with1:04 to go -- which came after Evan Fournier rebounded Faried's missed free throw -- pushed Denver ahead for the final time, 91-90.

The Nuggets did not score again, however, missing their only two remaining shots and suffering when Fournier turned the ball over with a poor pass between Denver misses.

Antic's heavily defended fallaway 20-footer with 41 seconds remaining gave the Hawks the lead for good.

QUOTABLE: "We compete. We have a great group of guys that play together and compete. We have ups and downs; that's normal. The most important thing is to win. It's a great system here, and we follow it."
-- Pero Antic, who when Teague missed a free throw with 8.4 seconds left, tipped the ball back out to Teague, who in turn passed to Korver for what became a clinching pair of free throws with 4.4 seconds remaining

THE STAT: 0.0 percent -- In the fourth quarter, the Nuggets -- who like the Hawks love the 3-pointer -- missed all eight tries from beyond the arc.

TURNING POINT: Antic's fallaway jumper for the final lead, which came on a scramble play and with Faried flying at him in the left corner, turned the game for good.

QUOTABLE II: "He has a knack for making big plays. I think the tip-out on the rebound was also big. ... His teammates trust him. We all trust him. Sometimes, you have to get a little bit lucky and make some big shots."
-- Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, on Pero Antic

HOT: For the second straight game, Millsap scored double digits in the first quarter. He had 10 points Saturday while shooting just 1-for-4 -- making a 3-pointer. He was 7-for-10 from the free throw line. Thursday, he had 12 first-quarter points in a win over the Bucks. ... Atlanta shot 5-for-7 on 3-pointers in the first quarter on the way to a 28-15 lead. ... Faried made all four of his shots in the third quarter while scoring 11. ... Denver out-rebounded Atlanta 12-3 while winning the third quarter 34-24. Oddly, neither team had an offensive rebound in the period.

NOT: Lawson tops this list easily after missing all 12 of his shots, including five in the fourth quarter. He nearly had a double-double, though, with 11 assists and career high-tying nine rebounds. ... Denver opened with a 6-for-23 (26.1 percent) first quarter. ... Hawks reserve guard Louis Williams, who missed Thursday's win over the Bucks while tending to the birth of a daughter, was in uniform but did not play. That was his fourth DNP-coach's decision in the past six games. He has played a total of 5:12 in that time, and not at all in the last five.

QUOTABLE III: "We were very lethargic in the first half. The way we played in the third and fourth quarters is the way we needed to play ... Ty struggled all night ... but he's our guy and we ride with him."
-- Denver coach Brian Shaw

NOTABLE: With 11 points and 10 rebounds, Denver reserve forward J.J. Hickson -- who grew up just outside Atlanta in Marietta -- has a team-leading 24th double-double. ... Carroll's double-double (11 points, 10 rebounds) was the second of his career. ... Atlanta starters shot a combined 28-for-63 for 84 points even as Carroll went 4-for-13. ... Denver finished its five-game road trip 2-3. ... Injured Nuggets forward Danilo Galinari (left knee ACL tear) was spotted before the game in the media commissary.

UP NEXT: For the Nuggets, Monday vs. L.A. Clippers, Wednesday vs. Detroit, Friday @ Dallas. For the Hawks, Monday @ Charlotte, Tuesday vs. Toronto, Friday vs. New Orleans.
