Hawks 120, Timberwolves 113

Forward Kevin Love scored 43 points but it was not enough to finally get the Minnesota Timberwolves a victory in Atlanta.

Guard Kyle Korver had 17 points in the second half and the Hawks won for the 11th successive time over Minnesota at home with a 120-113 victory.

Korver, who was 3-for-5 from behind the arc, scored 24 points, and forward Paul Millsap had 20 points and 13 rebounds before fouling out with four minutes to play.

Pelicans 88, Bulls 79

Forward Anthony Davis scored 15 of his game-high 24 points in the second half and grabbed eight rebounds and blocked six shots to lift the New Orleans Pelicans to an 88-79 victory over the Chicago Bulls.

Playing with a dislocated left index finger on his non-shooting hand, Davis did not seem bothered as he made 10 of 14 shots, including three mid-range jumpers in the fourth quarter.

The Bulls were led by guard D.J. Augustin's 23 points.
