Atlanta edges Boston as Korver extends streak
Paul Millsap had season highs with 34 points and 15 rebounds for Atlanta. Jeff Teague added 16 points, including a pair of free throws that put the Hawks up, 92-91, with 1 minute, 30 seconds left.
Boston had two shots to win it, but could not convert.
Golden State 94, Orlando 81 - David Lee had 22 points and Klay Thompson added 15 in the Warriors' victory over the Magic in Orlando. Arron Afflalo led Orlando with 15 points. Jameer Nelson had 11 points and six assists. Magic center Nik Vucevic injured his left ankle in the first quarter after. The ex-Sixer injured the same ankle earlier this season and missed four games.
George Hill had 13 points and six rebounds for the Pacers, who have won five in a row. Indiana outscored the Cavs in the fourth quarter 26-10.
Cavaliers all-star guard Kyrie Irving will undergo an MRI after injuring his left knee in the loss.
Irving was helped off the floor in the third quarter after falling awkwardly on a missed layup. A team physician cleared Irving to play and he returned in the fourth.
"When I went back it still didn't feel right," said Irving, who finished with 10 points, five assists and five rebounds in 35 minutes. "I thought the worst happened. I felt something pop in my knee. I was falling down around all over the place. It was a painful experience."
Irving said he will have an MRI on Wednesday.
Season over for Horford
Hawks center Al Horford has had season-ending surgery to repair a complete tear of his right pectoral muscle.
Horford, who was the Hawks' leading scorer and rebounder, suffered the injury in the first overtime of Thursday night's 127-125 double-overtime win at Cleveland.
Horford is averaging 18.6 points and 8.4 rebounds per game.
