Well, apparently Jeff Teague’s ankle isn’t bothering him that much after all. The Hawks point guard led the team with 24 points (4-for-4 from behind the arc) in a resounding 94-72 win over the New Orleans Hornets.
Teague’s status had been questionable after he sprained his left ankle and came out of Friday night’s game, but he played a solid 29 minutes. Guard Willie Green also came up big off the bench with 16 points in 15 minutes.
For the Hornets, it looked like Emeka Okafor was the only one who showed up to play. The center had 13 points and 8 rebounds; the remaining four starters had a combined 27 points and only 7 rebounds.
The win ends the Hawks three-game losing streak against the Hornets and brings them to 3-1 on the current road trip. The team wraps up the trip Tuesday night in Toronto.
