Hawks Soar Past Cavaliers
ATLANTA – Marvin Williams scored 22 points, Al Horford added 16 and 12 rebounds and the Atlanta Hawks remained the only undefeated team in the Eastern Conference by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 100-88 on Tuesday night for their fourth straight win.
Jamal Crawford added 16 points and Joe Johnson and Mike Bibby had 15 apiece for the Hawks, who are 3-0 on the road and snapped a six-game losing streak in Cleveland.
J.J. Hickson scored a career-high 31 points and was playfully serenaded with “M-V-P” chants by Cleveland fans, who used to sing that to superstar LeBron James before he left for Miami.
The Cavaliers have dropped three straight since knocking off Boston in their season opener.
