Josh Smith scored 13 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, Jeff Teague added 16 points and the Atlanta Hawks snapped Oklahoma City's seven-game winning streak with a 97-90 victory over the Thunder on Saturday night.

Kevin Durant finished with 35 points, going 14 of 17 on free throw attempts, and Russell Westbrook had 25 points for league-best Oklahoma City.

Smith, who matched a season-high in scoring and pulled down seven of his 12 rebounds in the fourth, had dunks on consecutive possessions to give the Hawks an 87-79 lead with 4:43 remaining.

Then, after forcing Durant to commit a turnover and pounding his fist against his own chest with 3:04 left, Smith matched Durant 3-pointer for 3-pointer to put Atlanta up 92-88 at the 2-minute mark.
