Hawks 97, Pacers 87

The Hawks jumped on Indiana early and led by 25 in the third quarter as they handed the NBA-leading Pacers their 12th consecutive regular-season loss in Atlanta.

Kyle Korver scored 17 points to lead five double-figure scorers for the Hawks (19-17) and extended his NBA record for consecutive games with a three-point basket to 105.

Paul George had 28 points and 12 rebounds for Indiana (28-7), who had won of eight of their past nine games and three in a row coming into the contest.

Indiana has not won a regular-season game in Atlanta since Dec. 22, 2006.

Nets 102, Warriors 98

Kevin Garnett scored 11 of his 13 points in the fourth quarter and added a critical steal in the final minute to help lead the Brooklyn Nets to a win over the Golden State Warriors.

It was the Nets' season-best fourth consecutive win, while the Warriors (24-14) had their 10-game winning streak snapped.

Joe Johnson led Brooklyn with 27 points. Golden State's Stephen Curry scored a game-high 34 but he had the ball stolen by Garnett late with a chance to tie the contest.
