ATLANTA (AP) - Al Horford scored 22 points, three other Atlanta starters reached double figures and the Hawks defeated the Toronto Raptors 102-95 on Friday night to give Mike Budenholzer his first head coaching victory.

The Hawks built an 18-point lead late in the third quarter, then held off a Raptors comeback in the final period. Jeff Teague and Kyle Korver had 17 points apiece, while Paul Millsap added 15.

Budenholzer, a long-time assistant in San Antonio, coached hard right to the end, arguing with the officials over a kicked-ball ruling even with the game in hand. When the horn sounded, he gave a quick wave to Raptors coach Dwane Casey, hugged Elton Brand and headed to the locker room with a big smile.

The Raptors lost despite 31 points from DeMar DeRozan.
