Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Millsap had 26 points and the Atlanta Hawks, back from their London trip, snapped a nine-game losing streak against the Miami Heat with a 121-114 win on Monday.

It was Atlanta's first win over Miami since Jan. 2, 2012.

DeMarre Carroll added 19 points, Pero Antic scored 17 and Kyle Korver hit a key 3-pointer down the stretch for the Hawks, who snapped a two-game overall losing streak and won for only the third time in their last eight.

They snapped a seven-game home losing streak against the Heat despite getting just two points from Jeff Teague, who averages more than 16. Teague checked out for the last time with 5:46 remaining in the third quarter and was 1-for-7 from the field.

LeBron James led Miami with 30 points, Chris Bosh scored 21 and Mario Chalmers had 17. The Heat were missing Dwyane Wade (knee) for the second straight game, and for the first time in the last five, but Chris Andersen (knee) returned from a three-game absence to score eight.

Miami had been 2-0 against the Hawks this season, with both of the wins coming at home, including a 121-119 overtime victory on Dec. 23.
