BOSTON (AP) — Paul Millsap scored 15 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter and Al Horford finished with 21 points and 10 rebounds as the Atlanta Hawks rallied to a 109-101 win over the Boston Celtics on Friday night.

Dennis Schroder scored 22 for the Hawks, including five during an 11-2 run midway through the fourth quarter that put them ahead for good. Atlanta outscored the Celtics 38-28 in the final period.

The Celtics led by 10 in the first half, but could not overcome a season-worst 22 turnovers and lost their third straight.
