ATLANTA (AP) -- Jeff Teague had 19 points and 11 assists, Zaza Pachulia added 19 points and 12 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks won their fifth straight game with a 104-93 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night. Blake Griffin scored 22 points and Chris Paul had 19 for the Clippers. Los Angeles has lost a season-high three consecutive games after winning six in a row. Lou Williams finished with 18 points and Josh Smith added 17 for Atlanta. One night managing season lows in points and field-goal percentage in an 86-76 loss at Brooklyn, the Clippers shot just 42.7 percent from the field. They began the game with the NBA's third-best shooting percentage. The Clippers twice closed within six before halftime, the second time coming on Griffin's dunk at the 1:20 mark, but Los Angeles was all but run out of Philips Arena in the third. After Willie Green's layup cut the lead to eight in the first 2 minutes of the third, the Clippers were outscored 18-4. Smith had a big highlight, catching Pachulia's long pass up the court and dribbling past Griffin for a left-handed dunk that made it 68-50. Pachulia followed with two baskets, a 16-footer from the left baseline and a putback to give the Hawks a 22-point lead with 4:06 left in the third. Atlanta never trailed after Teague hit a 17-footer that made it 26-24 early in the second, and Los Angeles' poor shooting played a big role in its demise. Williams' 20-footer ended a 16-0 run in the second quarter and gave the Hawks a 37-24 lead. Notes: Hawks G Devin Harris missed the game with a sore big left toe. ... Teague improved to 2-3 against Paul in their matchup of former Wake Forest point guards. ... Saturday also marked the first time in Teague's three seasons that he's had consecutive double-doubles. He finished Friday's win at Charlotte with 13 points and 12 assists. ... Griffin was given a technical foul from the bench early in the fourth, only a couple of seconds after Clippers F Lamar Odum was called for his first personal foul. ... Atlanta's bench outscored Los Angeles' 20-0 in the first half. ... Clippers G Jamal Crawford added to his NBA career record with his 33rd four-point play, hitting a 3 and the ensuing free throw early in the fourth.
