ATLANTA - The Atlanta Hawks werent going to let an ugly shooting night — or the last-place Philadelphia 76ers — mess up their winning streak. Calais Campbell Jersey .Kyle Korver and Paul Millsap each scored 17 points and Atlanta beat the 76ers 95-79 on Wednesday night, giving the Hawks their longest winning streak in 17 years.Korver sank five 3-pointers as Atlanta (15-6) won its eighth straight — the Hawks longest since an 11-0 start to the 1997-98 season.I think we all feel good, Korver said. Its fun playing basketball when were winning.DeMarre Carroll had 14 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta, which shot only 41.8 per cent from the field. The Hawks finally stretched the lead in the final period.Philadelphia coach Brett Brown held out forward Brandon Davies. Brown said he could not confirm Davies is about to be traded, but he indicated a trade could be coming.I was aware that his name was a part of it and I spoke to him before the game and told him that and said that I wasnt going to be able to play him tonight and risk things that were moving, Brown said. I felt out of fairness to him he needed to know why hes not in the game.Davies, in his second season, is averaging 6.3 points and 3.6 rebounds. He has started six of 20 games.The Hawks averaged 104 points in their first seven wins of the streak, but they had to rely on defence against Philadelphia.It was kind of ugly, not the best basketball game for us, said Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer. We were good enough to get the win. Weve got to get better.Alexey Shved had 13 points to lead the 76ers (2-19), who have won two of four since their 0-17 start. Luc Mbah a Moute had 12 points, and K.J. McDaniels and Jerami Grant each had 10.Tonight, I think we were a little stagnant, said Philadelphias Michael Carter-Williams, who had eight points, 10 rebounds and a game-high nine turnovers.We didnt get into our sets quick enough, Carter-Williams said. And of course our turnovers killed us.Strong defence helped overcome a sluggish game for Atlantas offence. The Hawks never trailed and led 47-38 at halftime and 68-58 entering the final period.A 3-pointer by Korver stretched the lead to 79-62. A basket by Mike Muscala, who had 12 points, pushed the lead over 20 points for the first time at 89-68.TIP-INS76ers: Tony Wroten, who leads the team with 17.9 points per game, missed his sixth straight game with a right knee sprain. There had been hope Wroten could return against the Hawks, but Brown said Wroten plays with a kamikaze mentality and needs to be closer to 100 per cent to play. When that disposition is watered down, its just not as effective, Brown said before the game.Hawks: The team had no shooting practice on Wednesday. Budenholzer, perhaps anticipating the pace of the game, said he wanted to conserve his teams energy to play defence. ... F Mike Scott was held out with flu-like symptoms. ... Korver had 11 points in the first half — the only scorer for ether team in double figures.TOO MANY TURNOVERSPhiladelphias 18 turnovers led to 20 points for the Hawks. Brown said Carter-Williams is trying to do the right thing.Hes trying to make the pass to people that youre seeing that are open, Brown said. Hes just going one extra dribble too much or he waits a second too long, and all of a sudden hes in an NBA crowd with athletes.EVERYBODY PLAYSBudenholzer almost emptied his bench, using 12 players. Elton Brand was the only player in uniform who did not play.Dennis Schroder had only five points but led Atlanta with four steals. Jeff Teague also had a low-scoring night, scoring only four points with his six assists.UP NEXT76ers: At Brooklyn on Friday.Hawks: Host Orlando on Friday. Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys .
