ATLANTA (AP) -- Al Horford scored 15 points and Lou Williams added 14 to lead the Atlanta Hawks past the Orlando Magic 82-72 on Monday night. Zaza Pachulia pulled down 10 rebounds in a reserve role for Atlanta, which has won two straight and three of four. Glen Davis was the only player to score in double figures with 11 points for the Magic, who have lost two straight and seven of eight. Orlando seemed to have given itself a break by ending the first quarter with a rare lead. The Magic had trailed after the first 12 minutes in seven of their first nine games, but they were outscored 24-12 in the third and were down 14 entering the fourth. Following a fastbreak layup by Arron Afflalo that cut the lead to three early in the third, Atlanta went on an 11-0 run over a 2:03 span ending with Kyle Korver's 3-pointer for a 59-45 lead. Early in the fourth, Ivan Johnson drew a foul from J.J. Redick on a runner in the lane and converted the three-point play to make it 72-50. Orlando's never led again after Jameer Nelson's layup made it 37-35 with 3:50 left in the second. Josh Smith, Atlanta's leading scorer following Joe Johnson's offseason trade to Brooklyn, ended the first half 0 for 5 from the field and 0 for 2 on free throw attempts before finishing the game with a season-low six points. Nelson, E'Twaun Moore, Josh McRoberts and Maurice Harkless each scored eight points and Nikola Vucevic had 13 rebounds for the Magic. Johnson and Jeff Teague had nine points apiece, while Devin Harris and Pachulia each scored eight for Atlanta.
