Atlanta:

Josh Smith scored 14 of his 21 points in the first half, and the Atlanta Hawks earned a 92-75 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday.

The Hawks split two preseason games with the Bobcats, losing 79-77 on Monday in Charlotte.

Charlotte were buoyed by the return of forward Corey Maggette, who missed Monday's game with back spasms. He scored 13 of his team-high 18 points in the first quarter on the way to a 27-all tie, but no other Charlotte player scored more than nine points. Rookie guard Kemba Walker scored eight.

Rookie free agent forward Ivan Johnson added 15 points and eight rebounds, and All-Star guard Joe Johnson scored 12 for the Hawks.
