Smith lifts Hawks to 95-86 win over Hornets

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Josh Smith scored 10 of his 23 points in the third quarter to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 95-86 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Tuesday night.

Al Horford added 20 points, Kyle Korver 14 and Zaza Pachulia 12 for the Hawks, who spoiled the homecoming of Hornets guard Eric Gordon.

Gordon, playing in his first home game this season, scored 11 points on 5 of 17 shooting. He made his season debut in a victory over Charlotte on Saturday after spending most of the season recovering from a knee injury.

Ryan Anderson scored 23 points and Greivis Vasquez added 17 for the Hornets.

The Hornets' Anthony Davis struggled from the floor, making 4 of 9 shots for nine points but had 12 rebounds.
