ATLANTA (AP) - Paul Millsap scored 22 points, Jeff Teague added 17 and the Atlanta Hawks eclipsed the franchise record with their 15th straight victory, beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 103-93 on Friday night.

Before a raucous sellout crowd, the Hawks won for the 29th time in 31 games to extend their Eastern-best record to 36-8.

As usual, pretty much everyone chipped in.

Four starters were in double figures and backup point guard Dennis Schroder led a spurt at the start of the fourth quarter that helped the Hawks pull away. He finished with 13 points and five assists, igniting the arena with a towering finger roll that dropped gently through the net.

Russell Westbrook led the Thunder with 22 points, but it wasn't enough to extend their four-game winning streak.
