Pelicans end Hawks' winning streak at 19 games, 115-100

The Hawks, unbeaten in January, start February with a loss in New Orleans to end franchise-record win streak

The Atlanta Hawks' franchise-record 19-game winning streak was snapped Monday night by the New Orleans Pelicans, who defeated the Hawks, 115-100, in New Orleans.

All-Star forward Anthony Davis had 29 points and 13 rebounds to help New Orleans win for the sixth time in seven games, a stretch that includes a victory Friday over the Clippers without Davis.

Jeff Teague scored 21 for Atlanta, but the Hawks fell behind by double digits in the first quarter and never caught up, ending a win streak that equaled the fifth-longest in NBA history.

Eric Gordon scored 20 points for New Orleans, and Tyreke Evans scored 15 points and tied a season high with 12 assists for the fourth time in five games.

Paul Millsap had 15 points and Kyle Korver scored 12 for the Hawks, who made only seven of 22 three-point attempts.

at Cleveland 97, Philadelphia 84: Kyrie Irving scored 24 points, LeBron James had 18 points and 11 assists, and the Cavaliers staggered past the young, struggling 76ers to notch to their 11th consecutive victory. The winning streak is Cleveland's longest since reeling off 13 in a row — a franchise record — in 2010, the last season of James' first stint with the club.

at Oklahoma City 104, Orlando 97: Russell Westbrook's second triple-double of the season and 10th of his career helped the Thunder overcome the absence of Kevin Durant, who sat out because of a sprained left big toe. Westbrook had 25 points, 14 assists and 11 rebounds. The Magic has lost nine straight.

Charlotte 92, at Washington 88: Al Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds, and the Hornets beat the Wizards for their sixth win in eight games. They went 10-4 in January despite losing Kemba Walker to a knee injury that will keep him sidelined at least six more weeks.

Memphis 102, at Phoenix 101: Jeff Green converted a three-point play with 4.5 seconds to play and the Grizzlies rallied from seven down in the final 1:35 to beat the Suns for the seventh straight time. Memphis has won seven in a row overall, and 11 of its last 12.

Milwaukee 82, at Toronto 75: Khris Middleton scored 25 points, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 12 points and 12 rebounds, and the Bucks snapped a six-game losing streak against the Raptors despite the absence of guard Brandon Knight, who sat out with a sore right quadriceps muscle.

at Dallas 100, Minnesota 94: Monta Ellis scored 23 points and the Mavericks won without injured point guard Rajon Rondo, who will miss at least three games because of two facial fractures. Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio had 10 points and four assists in his first game since severely spraining his left ankle Nov. 7.
