Korver leads Hawks past Love, Timberwolves 120-113

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (AP) -

Kyle Korver scored 24 points, including a trio of 3-pointers in a third-quarter stretch that gave Atlanta the lead, and the Hawks overcame Kevin Love's 43 points to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 120-113 on Saturday night.

Paul Millsap, guarded by Love much of the night in a matchup of All-Stars, had 20 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out late in the game.

A jam by Minnesota's Corey Brewer with 2:55 remaining cut Atlanta's lead to 107-104. Jeff Teague, who had 19 points, drove for a layup and DeMarre Carroll's free throws pushed the lead to seven points.

Love's 3-pointer again trimmed the margin to three before Atlanta's Gustavo Ayon banked in an unlikely scoop shot to thwart the comeback attempt.
