ORLANDO, Fla. — Paul Millsap had 24 points, Jeff Teague added 23 and the Atlanta Hawks hung on to beat the Orlando Magic 112-109 Wednesday night.
Atlanta opened a 19-point lead in the third quarter, but lost it the fourth before coming back to hit six free throws in the final 40 seconds for the win.
Seven players finished in double-figures for Atlanta, which has won two straight and has a day off before hosting San Antonio on Friday.
Victor Oladipo led Orlando with 24 points. Tobias Harris had 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Jameer Nelson finished with 17 points.
The Magic have lost 12 of their last 13, and fell to 1-14 this season without starting center Nik Vucevic, who continues to recover from a concussion.
