ATLANTA (AP) -

The Atlanta Hawks had to scramble to overcome early 3-point shooting by the Sacramento Kings, but finally took control of the game in the fourth quarter to pull out a 122-108 win over the Kings Friday night at Philips Arena.

Al Horford, hampered by two fouls in the first four minutes of the game, recovered to lead the Hawks (30-23) with 24 points, 8 eight rebounds and six assists. Josh Smith, relieved not to have been traded in the middle of the season, scored 18 points.

Jeff Teague had 20 points and 12 assists, and DeShawn Stevenson's 17 points included five 3-pointers.

Isaiah Thomas, who came in averaging 12.3 points a game for the Kings (19-37), scored 12 points in the first quarter alone, and he finished with 30 points. DeMarcus Cousins scored 26 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, and Tyreke Evans added 15 points.
