Dennis Schroder scored 16 and Paul Millsap finished with 14 for the Hawks, who beat the Heat for the second time in two meetings this season. An 18-5 run to end the third quarter was the deciding blow for Atlanta, which led by 10 in the first quarter, 14 in the second and pushed the margin to 88-72 going into the final 12 minutes.

The Hawks have now won four straight and six of seven.

Dwyane Wade scored 28 points and Chris Bosh finished with 27 points and 11 rebounds for Miami, which has lost six of its last eight home games. Mario Chalmers finished with 19 points and 11 assists for the Heat, who gave up 23 points off 19 turnovers.

Despite topping the 100-point mark for the first time in its last nine games, it was Miami’s fourth double-digit home loss of the season. The Heat were without point guard Norris Cole, who was ill.

Miami pulled to 63-62 on a 3-pointer by Bosh with 7:24 left in the third and the margin was only 70-67 when Wade made a free throw about 2 minutes later. That’s when the Hawks took off on their run, with Teague sparking it with six points and an assist, then Schroder finishing it with five points and an assist in the final 1:40.
