Young helps Hawks end slump and add to Warriors’ woe

Trae Young’s 24 points saw the Atlanta Hawks break a 10-game losing streak with a 104-79 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Rookie De’Andre Hunter added 18 points as the Hawks tasted victory for the first time since November 12, while their defence conceded a record-low number of points.

The Warriors, bottom of the Pacific Division with injuries to Steph Curry and Klay Thompson taking their toll, only dressed nine players for the encounter and fall to 4-18.

The Philadelphia 76ers remain undefeated at home after recording a 103-94 win over the Utah Jazz.

Tobias Harris had 26 points and Al Horford added 17 as the Sixers maintained their 100 per cent record after 10 games at the Wells Fargo Center.

Elsewhere, Giannis Antetokounmpo had 29 points and 15 rebounds despite playing just 21 minutes as the Milwaukee Bucks swept aside the New York Knicks 132-88, and the Indiana Pacers saw off the Memphis Grizzlies 117-104.

Two three-pointers from Kelly Oubre Jr proved pivotal as the Phoenix Suns defeated the Charlotte Hornets 109-104 with a last-minute rally from 104-97 down, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Sacramento Kings 113-106.
