Cavalier Lose 12th Straight Road Game In Atlanta

Joe Johnson scored 23 points with seven assists and the Atlanta Hawks extended their home winning streak to eight games with a 98-84 victory over Cleveland.

The Hawks overcame a seven-point deficit in the first quarter and never trailed in the final 34:14 of the game to remain unbeaten at Philips Arena since a November 22 loss to Boston.

Al Horford scored 18 points with eight rebounds in the win and Josh Smith had a double-double with 16 points and 11 boards. Marvin Williams added 17 points.

Antawn Jamison led Cleveland with 23 points and Mo Williams had a double- double, scoring 18 with 11 assists, but the Cavaliers fell to 1-12 in their last 13 games.

Cleveland’s only win since November 27 came in overtime against the Knicks on Saturday.
