ATLANTA (AP) The 76ers' decision to "let it fly" with 3-pointers almost grounded the Hawks' winning streak.

Al Horford's clutch play in the closing minutes helped keep the streak alive.

Horford scored 23 points, including a tying basket after Philadelphia took its first lead late in the game, and Atlanta recovered after squandering a 21-point lead to beat the 76ers 91-85 on Saturday night and stretch its franchise-record winning streak to 19 games.
