    ATLANTA -- Jeff Teague and the Atlanta Hawks had been in this situation a couple of times already this season. [b]Isaiah Oliver Jersey[/b] . So when the Orlando Magic erased Atlantas 17-point lead in the third quarter, Teague wanted to be a calming influence. "Were still learning every day," he said. "I was glad to see us bounce back, get the lead back up and make plays at the end. Hard work is paying off." Teague had 19 points and 13 assists, Paul Millsap scored 18 points with 11 rebounds and the Hawks beat Orlando 104-94 on Saturday night. Arron Afflalo finished with 21 points for the Magic, who have dropped 15 straight on the road dating to last March 4. Mike Scott had 17 points in a reserve role and Al Horford scored 15 and Kyle Korver added 14 for Atlanta. Korver made a 3 in his 79th consecutive game to surpass Dennis Scott and tie Michael Adams for second place on the NBA career list. After Korver hit a 3 on a fast break late in the fourth, Teagues fastbreak layup made it 97-88 with 1:41 remaining. The Hawks have won nine straight over the Magic at Philips Arena. Jameer Nelson and Andrew Nicholson each finished with 13 points for Orlando. Atlanta took the games first double-digit lead at 57-47 on Millsaps jumper with 9:30 left in the third. DeMarre Carroll followed with a 3 and Millsap hit a layup for a 15-point lead that caused Orlando coach Jacque Vaughn to call a timeout. "Guys were just getting in position where they were open," Teague said. "I was hitting them, and they were making shots. Paul and Kyle had their pick and pop all night, and they were making them. When I was getting in the lane, I was doing my best to draw defenders and kick it to them." Carrolls reverse dunk a couple of minutes later put the Hawks ahead by 17 for the games biggest lead, but the Magic went on a 23-7 run that ended with Andrew Nicholsons hook shot in the final minute of the third and gave Orlando a 71-70 lead. The Magic, who dropped to 0-3 on the road this season, got back in contention defensively by shutting down the passing lanes and forcing Atlanta to wind down the shot clock on multiple possessions late in the third and early in the fourth. "We fought our way back into the game," Vaughn said. "That unit that was on the floor gave us a lot of energy on the second night of a back-to-back and got us back into the game, take the lead. Great resolve by that group over there -- the Hawks -- making shots." ETwaun Moore and Afflalo hit consecutive 3s midway through the final period to cut the lead to 79-77, and Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer called a timeout. Afflalo 3s put the Magic up 88-87 with 3:50 remaining, but they didnt lead again. "Theres just no room for error at that point," Afflalo said. "We just couldnt close the game off tonight." Teague, secure in his role after Atlanta re-signed him to a multiyear contract last summer, is showing the kind of leadership that Budenholzer wants from his point guard. "I think hes really starting to understand what were saying," Budenholzer said after his team improved to 3-3. "I think for the last week to 10 days that hes had a lot of opportunities and a lot of responsibility for the way we play. Hes doing a lot of good things. I think hes going to get better and better. " NOTES: Dana Barros set the NBA mark by hitting a 3 in 89 straight games from Dec. 23, 1994-Jan. 12, 1996, during stints with Philadelphia and Boston. ... Adams made a 3 in 79 straight games during the 1987-88 and 1988-89 seasons with Denver. ... The Hawks had the biggest lead of the first half at eight on a pair of baskets by Scott in the first minute of the first quarter. [b]Atlanta Falcons Jerseys[/b] .

Cleared by team doctors after undergoing tests on his injured groin on Tuesday, DeRozan - who has missed Torontos last 18 games - says he is fully healed and pain-free but doesnt want to rush the process. The Raptors had hoped to have their all-star guard back in uniform as early as Thursday, when they host the Charlotte Hornets, but theyve opted to err on the side of caution, getting DeRozan in a few more practices and building his conditioning up following a six-week absence. At first I was [hoping to play Thursday], DeRozan admitted after going through his third practice since the injury on Wednesday morning. I owe that to [my teammates], not to just jump back in the game. I want to get a couple more practices in over these next couple days and then make a comeback. I was hoping, fingers crossed, toes crossed, Raptors coach Dwane Casey said. Realistically, I knew that if there was a question or if there was a little doubt, we were going to be patient and not rush him back. Selfishly, from a coachs [perspective], I wanted him to come back [Thursday]. Its the right thing to do. I totally understand. Im on board with it. I agree with it. The team hasnt officially ruled DeRozan out for Saturdays game at home to Boston but a return sometime next week appears more likely. The Raptors guard is hoping to get in an additional three-to-four practices before suiting up again. If thats the case, we could see him back for Wednesdays tilt with Philadelphia or Fridays contest against Atlanta. He looks good in practice, Casey continued. But just for his safety and his future health and his career, were going to be prudent just to make sure we go at the right pace, bring him back at the right time. And its the right thing to do. All of the doctors are saying it. I know it is killing him, because hes champing at the bit. Ive seen so many players have the same injury. You think youre back. But if those fibres have not grown back and matured in the right way, the littlest torque could pull it out and then hes out for the rest of the year. We want to be smart. Next man up. Its been a long month and change for DeRozan, a player that had missed just 10 games due to injury over his first five years in the league. Learning to cope with and recover from the first health-related setback of his playing career hasnt been easy on the 25-year-old, but he is relieved to be nearing the end of his forced time off. Its tough for me because I never really had a major injury, he said. Just dealing with it, having to start all over, being patient every single day, working on it, having to heal, going through the pain and really having to get my rhythm back, its definitely been tough. [b]Deadrin Senat Falcons Jersey[/b]. But its a new challenge for me. I think Ive grown mentally more when it comes to basketball than I may have if I wasnt hurt. So I take pros and cons from it. DeRozan has been trying to stay busy. Traveling with the team and often rehabbing on the court before games and after practices, the Raptors guard has also been sitting in on the coaches meetings. He has watched the teams varying results, mostly from behind the scenes - hes said that sitting on the bench makes him anxious. The Raptors are 11-7 without DeRozan but 10 of those wins have come against inferior competition - theyre 1-6 when facing winning teams over that span. I think its bigger than me, he said. Besides the last couple games the team lost, theyve been playing well. They have their rhythm and like I said, I dont just want to hop back out there. Theres a lot of new plays they put in that I still got to get down pat - plays for [Terrence Ross], plays for Kyle [Lowry] and everything. So I want to make sure I get all that down pat before I come back so there wont be [any] learning on the [fly]. During that time, Lowry has put the team on his shoulders, running many of the plays that are generally called for DeRozan, as the primary option on offence. Hes been amazing, man, honestly, DeRozan said of Lowry. I cant even say words that can explain how hes been playing. He definitely took the team on his back. Its definitely been amazing. Hes run every single one of my plays since Ive been out, he joked. It kinda [makes] me happy, but I tell em one thing yall cant do is get to the free throw line like me. (The Raptors are averaging nearly seven fewer free throw attempts per game without DeRozan) It was around this time last year that DeRozan became a first-time all-star and he believes Lowry is well on his way to doing the same this season. He insisted they both would have made the team if not for his injury, but isnt stressing his own status, instead hes focused on getting healthy and reaching that level once again. I cant really worry about that because if I dont get this injury right I might never be able to make an all-star team again, he said. So, [the] All-Star Game [is] here [in Toronto] next year, if were doing well I dont see why we [dont] have three people from the team in the All-Star Game. I was an all-star last year. I watch the game now, they say Toronto Raptors missing their all-star, so Ill always have the title no matter what.
