Game Recap: Devin Harris Propels Hawks Past Cavs 102-94

The Atlanta Hawks were propelled to victory by a dynamic duo — but it wasn’t Al Horford and Josh Smith.

Point guards Devin Harris and Jeff Teague combined for 46 points and 16 assists, as the Hawks cut down the Cavaliers 102-94 Monday night.

Harris was the MVP of the game, scoring a season-high 25 points, on 8-of-17 shooting, while adding seven assists, three rebounds and three steals in 43 minutes of action.

Teague hit four 3-pointers, as he tallied 19 points and nine assists to go with three boards and two thefts.

Josh Smith narrowly missed posting a triple-double, as he finished with 18 points, 14 rebounds and eight assists. He shot 50 percent from the field (7-of-14) and the foul-line (4-of-8), respectively.

Al Horford logged the least amount of minutes amongst the Hawks starters, but still had a solid game with 16 points, on 8-of-13 shooting, and six boards.

Kyle Korver hit three 3-pointers, extending his streak with at least one triple made to 68 games straight. That ties Reggie Miller’s mark for the fourth-longest streak of all-time.

Atlanta’s victory extended Cleveland’s losing-streak to nine straight.

The Cavs were led by reserve power forward Marreese Speights, who had a fantastic game with 23 points in 25 minutes of action. He shot 11-of-15 overall and added eight rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block.

Kyrie Irving was inactive for the game. He will not play in back-to-backs for the remainder of the season following his return from injury. Shaun Livingston started in his place and chipped in with 14 points, six helpers, five caroms and two thefts. He played a team-high 36 minutes and shot 6-of-10 from the field.

Tyler Zeller (12), Alonzo Gee (11) and Wayne Ellington (10) were also in double-figures.
