The Atlanta Hawks were able to win in Cleveland on Friday without Paul Millsap, Dwight Howard, Kent Bazemore and Dennis Schroder. What they did today at Phillips Arena was even more improbable. Down 26 points to start the 4th quarter, the Hawks scored 44 points in quarter to take the game to OT, and ultimately win 126-125 in OT.
Paul Millsap hit a corner jumper at the buzzer to take the game into OT. In OT, the Hawks were able to come back from a five-point deficit.
Kyrie Irving scored 45 points. LeBron James, who fouled out in OT, had a triple-double with 32 points, 16 rebs, and 10 asts. Millsap scored 22 points and Tim Hardaway Jr. added 21.
Cavaliers and Celtics are now tied for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
