Kevin Liles-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Teague scored 34 points and Paul Millsap recorded his first career triple-double as the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Toronto Raptors 118-113 to extend their winning streak to a season-best five straight games.

Jeff Teague equaled his career-high with 34 points and Paul Millsap recorded a triple-double as the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Toronto Raptors 118-113 in overtime to extend their winning streak to a season-best five games.

Teague missed on a drive that would have put the Hawks up by four with 13 seconds remaining in regulation. Kyle Lowry tied things up with his own scoring drive. Millsap missed a game winning attempt and the game headed to overtime.

Pero Antic got things started for the Hawks in the overtime by burying a three on Atlanta's first possession to put them up 109-106. After John Salmons tied things up with a three of his own, Millsap found DeMarre Carroll on a cut to the basket to put Atlanta up for good. That assist gave Millsap his first career triple-double with 19 points, 13 rebounds to go along with 10 assists.

Toronto committed a couple of mental errors in the game's final moments. First Amir Johnson was whistled for an offensive foul as he grabbed Antic's arm as he tried to rotate over to defend a drive by DeMar DeRozan. The as the Hawks tried to inbound the ball, Terrence Ross was whistled for an away from the ball foul against Kyle Korver. That sent Korver to the line for one free throw and gave the Hawks possession of the ball.

Korver converted the free throw to put the Hawks up by three at 112-109. Atlanta would convert all six of their free throw opportunities in the final moments to come away with another win.

Korver finished with 16 points for the Hawks while Carroll, Antic, Shelvin Mack and Cartier Martin all finished with eight each. DeRozan led the Raptors with 29 points and Kyle Lowry finished with 20.

The win improves Atlanta to 31-35 on the season and pulls them to within a game of the idle Charlotte Bobcats.
