Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll each logged 20 points as the Hawks became the first NBA team to hit 50 wins this year. Korver was 6-of-8 from 3-point range, and the team as a whole set a new franchise record for made threes with 20.

Heat-Celtics: Last night in Miami, the Celtics’ Isaiah Thomas led his team past the Heat with 25 points off the bench en route to a 100-90 victory for Boston. It was a big hit for Miami’s playoff chances.
Brandon Bass put up 14 points and Luigi Datome managed 13 for the Celtics.
Miami center Hassan Whiteside was ejected for the second time in four games after shoving Boston’s Kelly Olynyk.
Knicks-Nuggets: The Knicks provided the cure for the ailing Nuggets last night in Denver, as the home team cruised to a 106-78 win last night. Kenneth Faried posted 19 points and 11 rebounds, wile Wilson Chandler and Will Barton each put up 17.
It was Denver’s second-largest win of the year.
The Nuggets are now 3-2 under interim coach Melvin Hunt. This comes after a 2-18 stretch that got Brian Shaw fired.
Clippers-Timberwolves: Last night in L.A., the Clippers were able to get past the T-Wolves by a score of 89-76. The win was important due to the fact that Los Angeles is pretty banged up right now; they had to rely on J.J. Redick (26 points) and DeAndre Jordan (20 points; 17 rebounds) to carry the load.
An injured Chris Paul went 1-for-6 from the field with four turnovers.
