ATLANTA, Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Josh Smith pumped in 28 points and Joe Johnson added 27 Monday, helping the Atlanta Hawks deal Toronto a fifth straight loss with 93-84 decision.

Smith hauled down 15 rebounds and Johnson dished off six assists as the Hawks stayed hot with a third consecutive win and their sixth victory in seven games.

Atlanta again played without injured forward Al Horford, who will miss 3-4 months after sustaining a shoulder injury last week.

Leandro Barbosa scored 22 to lead the Raptors, who played their third straight game without leading scorer. Andrea Bargnani has been sidelined by a strained left calf muscle.
