New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) – Talk about spreading the wealth.

Jeff Teague was one of eight Hawks in double figures with 16 points as Atlanta
routed the New York Knicks, 110-90, on Saturday night.

Kyle Korver netted 15 points, Paul Millsap had 14 points and 13 rebounds, Al
Horford and Shelvin Mack each poured in 12, Mike Scott chipped in 11 and
DeMarre Carroll and Gustavo Ayon each added 10 for Atlanta, which has won four
of its last five games.

“I think it was great to see the bench give us what they gave us tonight. I
think defensively that was the closest to a complete game we’ve had,” Hawks
head coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Carmelo Anthony registered 23 points and 12 boards for the Knicks, who have
dropped six of their last eight tilts.

“You’re not going to beat anybody playing soft the way we did,” New York head
coach Mike Woodson said.

A Pablo Prigioni 3-pointer pulled the Knicks within 82-77 with 9:56 left in
the fourth, but the Hawks countered with a 16-4 run to put the game away.

Ayon put in a pair of layups, Korver recorded a four-point play and Horford
capped the surge with a layup to give Atlanta a healthy 98-81 cushion with
4:38 left.

The Knicks led 26-24 after a quarter of play, but a 15-2 Hawks swing early in
the second helped the hosts build a 43-34 spread before taking a 54-47 lead
into the locker room.

Atlanta took an 80-69 advantage into the fourth.
