Knicks dealt 5th straight loss by Hawks
NEW YORK (AP) -- Paul Millsap scored 19 points, Dennis Schroder extended his best stretch in the NBA with two big baskets in the final 2 minutes, and the Atlanta Hawks sent the New York Knicks to their fifth straight loss with a 91-85 victory Monday night.
Kyle Korver added 17 points as Atlanta finished a home-and-home sweep, including a 103-96 win Saturday at home.
Schroder, a second-year guard from Germany, scored a career-high 14 points, two nights after setting his previous career best with 11. With the Hawks clinging to a three-point lead, he knocked down a jumper with 1:55 to play, then scored on a drive to the basket that gave Atlanta an 81-74 advantage with 59 seconds remaining.
