Kyle Korver took a 3-point shot during Wednesday’s game in Atlanta.

Kyle Korver scored a season-high 23 points and tied the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer in the Hawks’ 107-97 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night in Atlanta.

Paul Millsap finished with 25 points and Al Horford added 21 to help the Hawks snap a two-game losing streak.

Blake Griffin scored 24 points and Chris Paul had 19 points and 11 assists as the Clippers lost their second straight.


Korver, returning from a bruised rib that sidelined him the last four games, tied Dana Barros’s 18-year-old NBA record by hitting a 3-pointer in his 89th straight game. Barros set the mark during stints with Philadelphia and Boston from Dec. 23, 1994, to Jan. 10, 1996.

The Spurs-Timberwolves game was postponed because of smoky conditions inside the Mexico City arena. The game will be made up in Minnesota at a later date.

The arena was evacuated about 45 minutes before the scheduled 9:30 p.m. tipoff when a generator malfunction outside the arena sent smoke pouring into the building, according to NBA spokeswoman Sharon Lima.
