Horford, Millsap rally Hawks to 106-98 win over Pelicans
ATLANTA (AP) - Al Horford scored 26 points and the Atlanta Hawks rallied Wednesday night to beat the injury depleted New Orleans Pelicans, who led much of the way but couldn't hang on without star Anthony Davis.
After trailing by 12 points in the first half, the Hawks pulled away down the stretch. Paul Millsap converted a couple of three-point plays to help seal the victory for Atlanta, which bounced back from a home loss to Minnesota two nights earlier.
The Hawks didn't have to worry about Davis. The star center missed the game with a right hip contusion sustained Tuesday against Dallas in the Pelicans' first win of the season. Horford took advantage by making 11 of 15 shots. Millsap was also a force, finishing with 19 points and 16 rebounds.
Eric Gordon led New Orleans with 26 points.
