LOS ANGELES (AP) — These young Atlanta Hawks are growing up over halfway through the season.
Trae Young scored 26 points, John Collins added 22 and they beat the Los Angeles Clippers 123-118 on Monday night for the first time in nearly three years.
Atlanta had lost five in a row to the Clippers dating to March 5, 2016. The Hawks earned their first win against a Pacific Division opponent this season after dropping their first five.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With the Hawks' momentum gone and a noisy sellout crowd cheering the Timberwolves, first-year Atlanta coach Lloyd Pierce made a bold prediction.
"I told our guys at the end of the third quarter, 'This is going to be our best win of the season,'" Pierce said.
It certainly wasn't their prettiest with 24 turnovers, but the Hawks made just enough hustle plays to overcome blowing a 22-point lead and beat Minnesota 123-120 in overtime Friday night.
NEW YORK (AP) — Kent Bazemore and the Atlanta Hawks erased a tough start with a big finish.
Bazemore scored 22 points, John Collins had 17 points and 16 rebounds, and the Hawks rallied to beat the New York Knicks 114-107 on Friday night.
Atlanta trailed 39-28 after one quarter, but held New York to 38 points in the second half of its second straight win.
"For our guys to make a stand defensively was great to see," Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce said.
Vince Carter could have gone anywhere.
To a contender, to chase a ring. To retirement, because he has nothing left to prove. To television, which seems like it will be his next vocation whenever his playing days end.
Instead, he chose Atlanta — a young team, a rebuilding team, a team that probably has minimal chance of making the playoffs.
ATLANTA (AP) — Taurean Prince knows the Atlanta Hawks are about to begin one of the toughest seasons in franchise history.
A year after going 24-58 — worst in the Eastern Conference — the Hawks are likely to take a step further back in the standings with an even younger team.
Point guard Trae Young, the fifth overall draft pick, and shooting guard Kevin Huerter, the 19th overall pick, are both 20 years old. Forward Omari Spellman, the 30th overall pick, is 21.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Michigan earned a spot in The Associated Press college basketball poll and almost lost it on the same day.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Fairleigh Dickinson was hanging with Big Ten power Maryland, giving the Terrapins all they could handle in a one-point game.

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — Playing without two key players, Maryland used depth and teamwork to make up the difference against Gardner-Webb.
Freshman Darryl Morsell scored a career-high 18 points, Kevin Huerter added 15 and the Terrapins methodically rolled to an 82-60 victory Saturday.

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — Maryland stopped a furious Illinois second-half comeback to steal a 92-91 overtime win in Big Ten conference action Sunday night.
Either team could have won the game in the final minutes and seconds, trading shots and fouls like heavyweight boxers.
"That was a big-time college basketball game," Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said. "We were terrific in the first half, and they were terrific in the second half. It's a game we probably shouldn't have won, but we'll take it."
