Seven Hawks scored in double figures to outmatch the one-two backcourt combination of All-Star guards
"I think we share the ball more than they do," said Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroder, who had nine points and seven assists off the bench. "I think that's why we won the game."
The Hawks (42-9, .824) passed the Warriors (39-9, .813) for the league's best record.
It was tempting for all -- with the possible exception of Hawks Coach
"I don't think one bit about that," Budenholzer said without a smile after the game.

"They were good," Warriors Coach Steve Kerr said of the Hawks. "They were better than us. We broke down defensively. They had a lot to do with that because of the way they stretch you out."
All-Star power forward Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans hurt his right shoulder on a hard fall after he dunked against the Chicago Bulls late in the first half Saturday and did not return to the game.
Davis was running hard in transition as guard Tyreke Evans floated a lob toward the hoop. With Chicago's Tony Snell trailing closely, Davis converted a soaring two-handed dunk, but momentum caused his body to swing like a pendulum as he grabbed the rim. He then fell horizontally as he lost his grip, landing on his right side.
After remaining prone for about a minute, Davis got up and briefly tried to keep playing before taking himself out.
