Jeff Teague scored 22 points, including two crucial free throws with 17.9 seconds left, and the Atlanta Hawks held off the Detroit Pistons 118-114 on Wednesday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Atlanta went on a 10-0 run late in the fourth quarter to take a 113-104 lead, then let the Pistons back in the game. Marcus Morris cut the lead to two with a three-point play with 18 seconds remaining, but Teague's pair of free throws made it 118-114, and neither team scored after that.

Andre Drummond had 18 points and 18 rebounds for Detroit, but he went only 8 of 17 from the free throw line, and the Hawks were more than willing to foul him.

Al Horford scored 21 points for Atlanta.
