Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) - DeMarre Carroll and Jeff Teague each scored 22 points to help the Atlana Hawks win their 10th straight game, 105-91 over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

Paul Millsap added 18 points and 10 rebounds for Atlanta. The Hawks have their first double-digit winning streak since winning 11 in a row early in the 1997-98 season. They lead the Eastern Conference at 31-8 and are 15-5 on the road.

Teague, Millsap and Carroll were well-rested after getting a night off Tuesday, when Al Horford led the Hawks past Philadelphia with his first career triple-double. On Wednesday, it was Horford and veteran outside shooter Kyle Korver resting up as their teammates easily took care of the Celtics.

Avery Bradley had 17 points and Jared Sullinger finished with 14 points and nine rebounds for Boston.
