(NBA) Hawks beat struggling Lakers
(12-17 12:11)

Al Horford led six Hawks in double figures with 19 points and pulled down 11 rebounds as the Atlanta Hawks dealt the struggling Los Angeles Lakers another NBA defeat.
Kyle Korver scored all 11 of his points in the third quarter when the Hawks took control en route to a 114-100 victory.
Korver's big third quarter included three three-pointers as he stretched his NBA record three-point streak to 94 games, AFP reports.
Jeff Teague recorded a double-double in the victory with 17 points and 10 assists. Paul Millsap chipped in 18 points, nine rebounds and four steals for the Hawks.
"I thought they came out much more aggressive, much more physical,'' Mike D'Antoni, pictured, said of a Hawks team that trailed his Lakers 54-47 at halftime but out-scored the visitors 35-19 in the third period.
"Every loose ball, every rebound, every long rebound every running-back, we just wilted. Obviously we can't do that,'' D'Antoni said. "We didn't gut it out tonight... We did not compete the second half the way they did.''
The Lakers fell to 1-4 since Kobe Bryant returned from a torn Achilles tendon.
Nick Young scored 23 points off the bench and Jordan Hill scored 21 points.
Pau Gasol contributed 16 points and 10 rebounds, but Bryant scored only eight points, making four of his 14 attempts from the field.
Asked if Bryant seemed fatigued in the second half, D'Antoni said that was to be expected as he continues to regain full fitness.
"I think that's going to happen,'' D'Antoni said. "That's where we have to do a better job of keeping the burden off him.''
