ATLANTA -- Forget about Dwight Howards trouble at the line and Atlantas off night from the field. Tim Hardaway Jr. Hawks Jersey . The Hawks settled down in time to secure their first 3-0 start in five seasons.Howard had 18 points and Kyle Korver and Dennis Schroder scored 17 apiece, leading Atlanta to a 106-95 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Monday.Every Atlanta starter scored in double figures, and the Hawks held Sacramentos DeMarcus Cousins in check after he averaged 30 points in the Kings first three games. He finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds.The Kings scored 37 points in the third on their way to an 81-79 lead heading into the final period. But the Hawks closed with a flourish.Third quarter we didnt keep our composure, fourth quarter we did, Atlanta forward Paul Millsap said. That team wants to make the game ugly. If you get caught up into that, then youll have a 37-point quarter, and we got caught up into it.Howard went 8 for 20 from the line, but also contributed 11 rebounds and four blocked shots. Millsap had 13 points and a game-high 14 rebounds.Rudy Gay scored 22 points for Sacramento (2-2), and Matt Barnes had 14.

Korver helped Atlanta hold on with another 3 with about four minutes left.The Kings made just 6 of 18 shots in the final period.Where it ran back away from us was we fell in love with the jump shot, and stopped getting in the paint, Sacramento coach Dave Joerger.Millsap helped with the defense on Cousins, and also finished with eight assists, three steals and a blocked shot.Hes a special player, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. That third quarter I think got to him a little bit, and him not being on the court obviously impacts us.TIP-INSKings: Cousins became the Kings career leader with 246 double-doubles. Chris Webber had 245. Only Howard (267) and Kevin Love (266) have more double-doubles in the NBA since 2011.Hawks: Atlanta has scored at least 53 points in the first half of all three games this season, and led each time.HAWKS ON THE MOVEAtlanta made a couple of moves after learning forward Mike Scott will be unavailable for about four weeks as he prepares to undergo a platelet replacement procedure to alleviate pain in his left knee. He was limited in the preseason, and missed the first two regular-season games. The Hawks re-signed forward Ryan Kelly, who was in camp with team after playing three seasons with the Lakers, and waived center Edy Tavares.FAMILIAR FACEFormer Hawks forward Josh Smith attended the game.COME ON, REF!Last in the first quarter, Joeger pleaded to official Karl Lane: My man over here (the scorekeeper) is running out of lead!

They controlled the pace, spread the ball around and held Chattanooga (3-3) to 17 of 57 shooting from the field in ending its two-game winning streak.I thought we did a lot of really good things in that first part of the game, said Walz, whose team shot 44 percent and made 18 assists on its 25 baskets. We got the pace going that we wanted, we executed well, and we passed the ball, a lot of good things.When we subbed, we kind of took a step back and thats something I talked to our bench players about. ... We should go forward.

Myisha Hines-Allen had 10 boards along with seven points.Moore was presented with a specially-designed ball after the game and said of her milestone, Its a blessing.

We came out tentative in a way that surprised me, coach Jim Foster said. We played with effort, but we needed 40 minutes of effort and just got 30. For the first 10 minutes, it wasnt where it needed to be.The Mocs finished even on the boards (36-36) and blocked three more shots than Louisville (8-5) thanks to Joyner, who has 29 rebounds and 16 rejections the past two games.Louisville: The Cardinals shot 50 percent in the first half before cooling off to 44 percent for the game.
