The Hawks had a chance for a rare road win tonight in New Orleans, but succumbed to a late rally and lost 105-100 to the Pelicans. The loss dropped Atlanta's road record to 9-15 for the season.

Former #1 overall pick Anthony Davis led New Orleans with 27 points and 10 rebounds, making 9 of 14 shots. Brian Roberts helped fuel the Pelicans' comeback, scoring 17 of his 19 points in the second half. Eric Gordon added 18 points.

The Hawks led 83-76 with 7:45 left to play, but could not withstand the rally and lost their second straight game. Paul Millsap had 26 points and 10 rebounds to pace the Hawks, while DeMarre Carroll had a very strong game with 22 points, seven rebounds, and three steals on 9-12 shooting. Jeff Teague had 11 points and 13 assists but made just five of fourteen shots from the floor.

The Pelicans improved to 21-27 but still sit far back in the Western Conference, seven games behind Dallas for the 8-seed. The Hawks fell to 25-23 and fourth in the East, a game behind Toronto.

The Hawks are off until Saturday, when they will host the Memphis Grizzlies (26-22).
