Atlanta, GA - Mike Scott scored a career-high 30 points, Jeff Teague added 28 and the Atlanta Hawks snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 107-98 victory over the New York Knicks on Saturday night.

Carmelo Anthony finished with 35 points for the Knicks, who blew a double-digit, third-quarter lead for the second straight night.

New York has lost two straight and seven of nine to fall 5 1/2 games behind Atlanta for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

Atlanta began the game without All-Star forward Paul Millsap, who sustained a right knee contusion late in the fourth quarter of Friday's loss at Detroit, but the Hawks rallied from a 17-point deficit in the third quarter to take a 74-73 lead on Lou Williams' 3 early in the fourth.

The Hawks never trailed again.
