Teague has career-high 28, Hawks stop Nets 109-95
ATLANTA 109, BROOKLYN 95

By CHARLES ODUM
AP Sports Writer

ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks took a fast-paced approach to
ending their worst slump of the season: Run, run and then run
some more.



Jeff Teague had a career-high 28 points and 11 assists, Zaza
Pachulia finished two assists shy of a triple-double and the
short-handed Hawks beat Brooklyn 109-95 on Wednesday night to
stop the Nets' seven-game winning streak.



The Hawks, who had lost six of seven, played without leading
scorer Josh Smith. The forward was suspended for one game and
fined an undisclosed amount for "conduct detrimental to the
team" following an incident in practice Tuesday.



The loss of Smith, also the team's second-leading rebounder,
left Atlanta undersized against the Nets and their 7-foot
center, Brook Lopez.



Led by Teague, the Hawks adjusted by outrunning the Nets.
Atlanta had a 29-12 advantage in fast-break points.



"They ran it down our throats the entire game," Brooklyn interim
coach P.J. Carlesimo said.



The Hawks almost doubled their point total from Monday night's
97-58 loss at Chicago.



"Obviously, everybody was embarrassed by the effort we gave in
the last game," said Devin Harris, who had 18 points.



The Hawks ran out to an early 13-4 lead and never trailed.



"Early you could see that the energy was there," coach Larry
Drew said. "They came out and took the attack to Brooklyn. You
have to play like that when you've been struggling."



Pachulia had 13 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high eight
assists. Al Horford had 17 points and 13 rebounds.



Lopez had 22 points for the Nets, who lost for only the second
time in 11 games under Carlesimo. Brooklyn, playing back-to-back
nights following a home win over Toronto on Tuesday, shot just 4
of 26 on 3-pointers.



"We're flat-out exhausted," Carlesimo said.



But he added that blaming the loss on fatigue was not fair to
the Hawks' effort.



"They outplayed us in pretty much all the aspects of the game,"
Carlesimo said. "They were very, very aggressive. They really
shared the ball. The ball moved very, very well."



Smith has missed three games this season, two for health
reasons. Each time the Hawks managed an impressive win - at
Oklahoma City in Atlanta's second game of the season and at home
over Indiana and Brooklyn.



Even so, Drew said he missed Smith.



"Tonight we were good," Drew said. "With Josh we're better.
That's just the bottom line. It will be good to get Josh back.
Tomorrow when Josh shows up, he will get a big hug from me."



Joe Johnson had 15 points while shooting 4 of 15 from the field
in his return to Atlanta, where he played the past seven
seasons. Johnson was a six-time All-Star with the Hawks but drew
some boos from Atlanta fans.



The Hawks had success in providing help for Kyle Korver and
DeShawn Stevenson, the primary defenders on Johnson.



"If we'd have made them pay a couple of times, then they
wouldn't have double-teamed as much," Johnson said. "It seemed
that we just didn't know where to be."



Teague's previous high was 27 points at Cleveland on Dec. 28,
2012.



"When shots were there, I just tried to take them with
confidence, and I was able to knock some down," Teague said.



After scoring only 20 points in the first half of the loss to
the Bulls, including five in the second quarter, the Hawks led
the Nets 56-40 at halftime. Their 24 field goals in the half
matched their total for the full game against the Bulls.



With every defensive rebound, Drew waved his right arm in
windmill fashion and yelled "Let's go!" as he demanded his team
push the pace. The Hawks followed his instruction, taking a 19-4
advantage in fast-break points in the first half.



Atlanta stretched the lead to 73-47 midway through the third
quarter.



The Nets closed to 99-87 on a 3-pointer by Deron Williams, who
scored 12 points. Andray Blatche also had 12 for the Nets.



The Hawks shot a season-high 57.7 percent from the field. Lou
Williams and Kyle Korver each scored 11.



The teams play again in Brooklyn on Friday night.



"They were a very, very good team tonight without Josh,"
Carlesimo said. "You've got to think they're going to be a
better team when they add a player of his caliber on Friday."



NOTES: Hawks radio play-by-play announcer Steve Holman was
honored for calling his 2,000th consecutive game. The streak,
which began in 1989 and includes the regular season and
playoffs, is the longest of any NBA announcer in radio or
television. ... Matt Kenseth, the 2012 Daytona 500 winner,
attended the game to promote the Feb. 24 race. ... Hawks G
Anthony Morrow (sore lower back) did not play. ... Nets F Gerald
Wallace (bruised ribs) did not start but had four points in 15
minutes.
