ATLANTA, March 6 (UPI) -- Jeff Teague ignited Atlanta to a strong first half Wednesday and the Hawks coasted to a 107-96 decision over Philadelphia.

After falling behind 8-0, the Hawks built a 12-point halftime lead and owned a 21-point advantage heading into the fourth period. They easily survived down the stretch to end a three-game losing streak. The 76ers have dropped three in a row.

Teague made 10-of-15 from the field, hitting three 3-pointers while scoring 27 points. He also distributed 11 assists. Al Horford and Anthony Tolliver scored 21 each for the Hawks, who made 53 percent of their shots from the field and converted 11-of-24 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Philadelphia was led by Damien Wilkins with 21 points off the bench. The 76ers managed just 37 points from their starters.
