Hawks, Trail Blazers

Dejounte Murray scored 30 points and Garrison Mathews netted a season-high 21 to help the Atlanta Hawks get their third straight win,120-106 over the visiting Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

Murray has scored 28-plus points in three of his last four games. He was 13-for-20 from the field, including 4-for-8 on 3-pointers, with seven assists. It was his 11th game with 30-plus points and the 22nd time he has led the team in scoring.

Mathews made a season-high five 3-point baskets before fouling out in the fourth quarter.

The win earned the Hawks a split of the two-game season series. Atlanta has won the last five games against the Blazers in Atlanta. The Hawks, No. 10 in the Eastern Conference, remain 5 1/2 games ahead of Brooklyn for the final spot in the play-in tournament.

Atlanta (33-39) also got 13 points and 10 rebounds from Clint Capela, who posted his 33rd double-double. Bogdan Bogdanovic added 16 points, including two 3-pointers, giving him 1,000 for his career.

Portland (19-54) lost for the eighth straight time. The Blazers were led by rookie Dalano Banton with a career-high 31 points to go with eight rebounds. Toumani Camara scored 17 points, 14 of those in the first half. Scoot Henderson scored 15 points and Duop Reath 13.

With the game tied at 51-51 at the 4:15 mark of the second quarter, the Hawks went on a 14-7 run and took a 65-58 lead at halftime.

Atlanta outscored Portland 11-2 to open the third quarter and take a 16-point lead. The Blazers never got closer than nine points the rest of the way, and the Hawks took a 100-86 lead into the final quarter.

Atlanta completes a home back-to-back on Thursday against the Boston Celtics. The Blazers continue their seven-game road trip on Friday at Miami.
