The Atlanta Hawks won their third straight game on Friday night with a 118-85 thumping of the Utah Jazz at Philips Arena.

Lou Williams led the Hawks with 25 points and four steals, as the Hawks had 32 assists to add to their league-leading assists total. It was also their third straight game over 110 points, passing the mark in their wins (all at home) over the Lakers, Kings, and Jazz this week.

Al Horford has 23 points. Paul Millsap had a double-double against his former squad, with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Atlanta also excelled on the defensive end of the floor, holding Utah to just 37% shooting for the game. Utah also made just 3 of 18 three-point shots, while Atlanta drained 10 of 26 from long distance (38.5%).

The Hawks will next face Miami on Monday night. The Hawks sit third in the East at 15-12, and second in the Southeast division behind the Heat (20-6). The game will take place in Miami with a 7:30 PM tipoff.
