ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks won their 13th straight game, one shy of tying the team record, as Mike Scott and Paul Millsap each scored 20 points Monday in a 93-82 victory over the Detroit Pistons.  The Hawks haven’t lost since Dec. 26 against Milwaukee.

Scott, a backup, had eight points in the fourth quarter. Al Horford added 14 points, seven assists and six rebounds.

The Pistons were trying for their franchise-record eighth straight road win. Detroit had won 11 of 13 overall before its third straight loss to the Hawks this season.

Greg Monroe led Detroit with 16 points and 20 rebounds. Andre Drummond added 13 points and 18 rebounds, but made only 3 of 12 free throws.

The Pistons held the Hawks without an offensive rebound in the first half and finished with a 61-42 advantage on the boards.

Atlanta took an 8-0 lead and led 16-12 at the end of a first quarter that included 34 missed shots.

Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver combined to make only 2 of 13 shots in the first half, but the Hawks led 44-41 at the break.

Korver warmed up with two 3-pointers in the third quarter and had 13 points.

The Hawks stretched the advantage to double figures for the first time in the final four minutes.
