INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Jeff Teague scored 25 points in the Atlanta Hawks' 107-88 rout Sunday of the reeling Indiana Pacers, who were held to a franchise-low 23 points in the first half of an embarrassing performance on their home floor.

The Hawks (34-42) have won three of four and extended their lead over the Knicks for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference to two full games.

The Pacers (53-25) have lost four of five and fell a full game behind Miami in their quest for the No. 1 seed in the East. Paul George scored 18 points and David West had 17 on a night All-Star center Roy Hibbert did not play the final 30 minutes.

Atlanta jumped to a 9-0 lead, extended the margin to 33-11 after one and 55-23 at the half.
