ATLANTA, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- Lou Williams equaled a career best by hitting six 3-pointers Friday, helping Atlanta roll over Utah 118-85.

The Hawks won their third in a row to climb three games above the .500 mark. Atlanta is one of just three teams in the Eastern Conference with a winning record, joining Indiana and Miami.

Williams came off the bench to hit 8-of-13 shots overall and score 25 points. Al Horford chipped in 23 points while Paul Millsap had 14 and 10 rebounds.

Atlanta owned a 14-point lead after one quarter and expanded the cushion to 21 points at halftime.

Enes Kanger led Utah with 13 points and 13 rebounds. The Jazz lost for the third time in four games and dug an early hole by shooting only 26 percent in the first period.

Kyle Korver's NBA record for most consecutive games with at least one 3-pointer grew to 96. He went 2-of-3 from beyond the arc.
