Hawks vs Trail Blazers final score: Kyle Korver's streak ends in loss to Portland

Craig Mitchelldyer-USA TODAY Spo

Kyle Korver's three-point streak comes to an end in a 102-78 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Atlanta Hawks fall to 0-3 on their current six-game road trip with a 102-78 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. The loss was Atlanta's eighth straight on the road and fourth straight overall.

A shining example of Atlanta's struggles was that Kyle Korver's consecutive games streak with a made three came to an end at 127 games after he was shutout against Portland. Korver finished with just five points on 1-9 shooting and was 0-5 from three-point range. With Atlanta trailing by more than 20 he did not play in the fourth quarter.

The Hawks fell behind early as the Blazers jumped out to a 29-19 lead after one. Portland kept pouring it on in the second and extended the lead 56-38 as the Hawks struggled mightily on the offensive end. Atlanta made just 11-44 attempts in the first half (25 percent) and were 2-14 from three-point range.

Things didn't get any better in the second half for the Hawks as Portland pushed the lead out to as much as 29 points.

If there was a bright spot for Atlanta it was that Pero Antic made his return to the court (even though he apparently wasn't expected to play) after missing 17 games with a stress fracture in his ankle. Antic finished with 10 points on 3-5 shooting in 16 minutes off the bench.

The rest of the offensive numbers were ugly for Atlanta. The Hawks failed to score 20 points in a quarter until the fourth after Portland let up defensively. They shoot 33 percent for the game and were 4-27 from beyond-the-arc. Cartier Martin led the way with 16 points and Jeff Teague added 10 but was just 4-12 from the field.

Mo Williams was one of six different Blazers in double figures with 15 points. Nicolas Batum finished with 14 points and a game-high 18 rebounds.

Atlanta's road trip of doom continues on Friday when they open a back-to-back set against the Golden State Warriors.
