Williams, Horford pace Hawks past Pacers
Lou Williams had 21 points and a career-high 12 assists, Al Horford added 20 points and the Atlanta Hawks won their fourth straight, 109-100 over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.
David West scored a game-high 29 points for the Pacers, who had won four straight and seven of eight.
With Josh Smith, Atlanta's leading scorer this season, unable to play because of a right hip flexor, Hawks coach Larry Drew started Zaza Pachulia, who responded with 17 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.
Indiana never got closer than three in the fourth quarter after Paul George's three-point play made it 91-88 at the 5:18 mark.
Jeff Teague's floating runner made it 101-90 less than 3 minutes later.
George finished with 18 points and George Hill added 15 for Indiana. Hill started and played 33 minutes despite a sore right groin.
