LOS ANGELES (AP) - Lou Williams scored 13 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, Jordan Clarkson added 18 points and the Los Angeles Lakers overcame the absence of two injured starters for a 109-94 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday night.
Nick Young scored 17 points as the Lakers swept their season series with Atlanta in a confident second-half performance.
Los Angeles (9-9) won for just the second time in six games during a brutal part of its schedule, as Williams led a fourth-quarter surge past his former team for the second time this month.
Kent Bazemore scored 21 points and Dwight Howard added 19 points and nine rebounds amid constant boos for the Hawks, who have lost five of six after a 9-2 start to the season.
