Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) - Paul Millsap scored 20 points and Al Horford added 19 to lead Eastern Conference-leading Atlanta to a 112-100 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night, extending the Hawks' franchise record with their 16th straight win.

Jeff Teague finished with 15 points and seven of Atlanta's 30 assists as the Hawks won for the 30th time in 32 games.

Thaddeus Young had 26 points and Mo Williams added 20 for Minnesota. The Timberwolves, who are last in the Western Conference, have lost four straight and 20 of 22.

The Hawks' biggest advantage was 18 on a 3 by Millsap late in the second quarter.

Minnesota trimmed the lead to eight several times in the second half before pulling within six on Wiggins' turnaround jumper and Young's putback twice in the closing minutes.

But DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver hit consecutive 3s to push lead back to 12.
