Horford, Millsap pace Hawks in 104-75 win over Pacers
ATLANTA (AP) Al Horford and Paul Millsap each scored 18 points, Kyle Korver added 14 and the Atlanta Hawks used a blistering third quarter to rout the Indiana Pacers 104-75 on Sunday night.
The Pacers' 75 points were a season low for the team and for an Atlanta opponent.
Indiana had won three straight to move 1 1/2 games behind Atlanta for the sixth Eastern Conference playoff spot, but the Pacers fell apart after trimming the lead to eight early in the third.
The Hawks went on a 20-0 run and finished the period with seven 3s, the last coming by reserve forward Kris Humphries to make it a 34-point lead. Atlanta has won five of its last six.
Indiana rookie Myles Turner, who scored a team-high 19 points, was the only starter for either team to play in the fourth. All-Star starting forward Paul George finished with just seven points for the Pacers, almost 19 below his team-leading average, on 3-for-15 shooting.
