Jeff Teague scored 22 points for the Hawks in their second game without two-time All-Star Al Horford, who is out indefinitely with a torn right pectoral muscle. The Hawks were also coming off three straight, grinding overtime games, the latest of which was Saturday night at home against Charlotte.
The Hawks made the game’s first bucket, a 3-pointer, but then trailed until a spurt in the fourth quarter gave them a three-point lead. But a 9-0 run midway through the final quarter put Orlando in control for good.
76ERS 111, LAKERS 104
LOS ANGELES • Thaddeus Young scored seven of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Evan Turner added 22 points, and Philadelphia snapped its 13-game road losing streak by beating the Lakers.
Spencer Hawes had 19 points and eight rebounds for the Sixers, who hadn’t won away from Philadelphia since their road opener on Nov. 1.
Young and Michael Carter-Williams contributed big points down the stretch as the last-place Sixers held on for just their second win in 11 games overall.
Nick Young scored 26 points on 6-for-21 shooting in the Lakers’ fifth consecutive loss. Los Angeles also has lost five of six at Staples Center, winning just once at home since Nov. 24.
