ATLANTA -- Devin Harris, making his first start since Dec. 18, caught fire in the fourth quarter by scoring a season high 24 points to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 103-95 win over the Utah Jazz Friday night at Philips Arena. The win snapped a four-game losing streak for the Hawks (21-14). The Jazz ((19-19) led by as many as 15 points in the third quarter. The Hawks' second unit brought Atlanta back to within two points -- 82-80 -- with 7:18 remaining in the game before Jamaal Tinsley made his first basket of the game to start building that lead back. With the Hawks' starters playing sluggishly, it was up to the bench to shake things up. Lou Williams scored 11 points and Ivan Johnson added 13 points and seven rebounds. Josh Smith finished with 15 points and 10 rebounds. But the Hawks hung in there, tying the game again at 85-85 two minutes later. And again at 92-92 at 3:15. Al Horford gave the Hawks a 94-92 lead with 2:30 left. The Jazz its size and physicality and 25 points from Randy Foye to stay ahead of the Hawks for most of the game. Paul Millsap had 20 points and 13 rebounds and Al Jefferson 23 points and 10 rebounds. But it wasn't enough for the Jazz to win consecutive road games for the first time this season. Utah beat the host Charlotte Bobcats 112-102 on Wednesday. Notes: Hawks coach Larry Drew started Harris, hoping to "bring a little normalcy" -- meaning speed -- to the lineup. Harris was scoreless in 12 minutes in Wednesday's 99-83 loss to the host Cleveland Cavaliers, his first action after missing 10 games with a sore left foot. Drew said he'd keep an eye on Harris' minutes, but Harris said before the game, "As far as I'm concerned, I'm ready to roll." ... Jazz coach Ty Corbin, who played four seasons for the Hawks, wants his team to put together a five-or six-game winning streak in 2013. The Jazz was looking to win consecutive road games for the first time this season after Wednesday's win. ... Former Hawk Marvin Williams, who was traded for Harris in the offseason, traveled with the team but was not able to play because of an inflamed right knee. But he was happy to sleep in his own bed Thursday night and hang out with his mom on Friday.
