Korver sets 3-point mark, Hawks beat Cavs 108-89

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver set the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer, Al Horford scored 22 points, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-89 Friday night.

Korver's 3 with 5:29 remaining in the first quarter gave him at least one in a record-90th straight game, breaking a tie with Dana Barros (1994-96). Korver was 2 for 3 from beyond the arc and finished with 10 points.

Paul Millsap had 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks.

Dion Waiters scored a season-high 30 points for the Cavaliers. Andrew Bynum tied his season high with 20 points and grabbed a season-best 13 rebounds, and Jarrett Jack added 13 points.

The rest of the Cavs, however, combined to shoot 12 for 50 and starters Kyrie Irving and Alonzo Gee went scoreless. Irving, who entered the game averaging 20.8 points per game, shot 0 for 9.

The Hawks had little problem with the Cavs. Atlanta raced to a 37-20 lead in the first quarter while Korver made two of Atlanta's five 3s in the period. Millsap connected from 50 feet as the buzzer sounded, and the Hawks pushed the lead to 77-48 in the third quarter.

Korver entered the game having made 47 percent of his 3-point tries (233 for 499) during the streak. A modest crowd in Philips Arena rose to its feet each time he shot from afar, including his miss just 1:03 into the game.

Atlanta did not make a 3-pointer in the second quarter, yet built a 63-43 halftime lead as Millsap had 14 points and seven rebounds in the first two quarters.

Bynum had 12 points and nine rebounds by halftime, and Waiters scored 17, but the rest of the Cavs combined to shoot just 5 for 31 in the first half.

Cleveland went on a 12-0 run in the third quarter, pulling to 77-60 on Bynum's putback.

Waiters and rookie guard Matthew Dellavedova hit 3-pointers on consecutive possessions to pull the Cavs to 84-72 early in the fourth before Atlanta steadily pulled away.
