ATLANTA (AP) -- Marvin Williams scored 27 points and Joe Johnson
had 23 to help the Atlanta Hawks win their third straight, 114-109
over the New York Knicks today.

The Hawks increased their lead over New Jersey to 2 1/2 games for
the eighth and final spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. New York dropped to 7-29 on the road and has lost two straight and seven of eight overall. Jamal Crawford led the Knicks with 39 points but he was just 2-for-5 from the field in the fourth before his meaningless layup ended the scoring.

Johnson, who had a season-high 13 assists, caught Al Horford's
pass from the right wing and laid in a short turnaround for a 105-94 lead with 3:42 remaining. New York's last lead, 68-67, came on David Lee's putback with 7:06 left in the third. Lee finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Mike Bibby hit a straightaway 3-pointer, making it 90-80 with 9:37 remaining, for the game's first double-digit lead.
