ATLANTA -- Hawks coach Larry Drew always knew Jeff Teague had plenty of talent. The question was how Drew would use Teague this season and how the second-year guard would perform with minutes often scarce. "He gave it to me in a big way tonight," Drew said. "He was sensational from start to finish on both ends of the floor." Teague matched a career high with 24 points, Jamal Crawford added 20 and Atlanta snapped a four-game slide with a 91-82 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night. The Hawks (38-28) were without starting centre Al Horford because of a sprained ankle and reserve forward Josh Powell, who was arrested before the game on traffic charges not far from Philips Arena. All of Crawfords points came in the second half on 8-for-14 shooting. LaMarcus Aldridge scored 22 and Wesley Matthews finished with 19 for Portland (37-29), which has lost two straight following a four-game winning streak. Drew started Zaza Pachulia in Horfords spot and benched forward Marvin Williams in favour of Teague at shooting guard. Joe Johnson moved to the No. 3 guard spot. Josh Smith finished with 14 points and 12 rebounds for Atlanta. Hawks point guard Kirk Hinrich went scoreless in four attempts from the field, playing just under 16 minutes, but Teague filled the void in the backcourt. "Ive never stopped believing in this kid because I see what the package is with him," Drew said. "He can make shots. Hes got speed. Hes got quickness. He can go from end to end. Defensively, he can be a nuisance." Teague, a first-round draft pick in 2009, was making just his eighth start in 127 career games, but gave the Hawks a big lift by scoring six points in the last 9.2 seconds of the first quarter. "I just wanted to get up there and put some pressure on, try to overplay the passing lane and make something happen," Teague said. "I got my hands on a couple of balls and got lucky." After hitting a pair of free throws, Teague knocked the ball away from Patrick Mills at midcourt and drove for an uncontested dunk, then stole the ensuing inbound pass and hit a three-pointer for a 19-18 lead. "Thats a tough run, but its the early part of the game," Matthews said. "We still had three quarters left to try to regroup, try to put the team away. But we couldnt. Jeff Teague had a great game. He was finding the passing lanes. He was really active and caused a problem for us." Teague, who was 11-for-17 from the field, played 44 minutes, 10 more than his season high. He also had five steals and three blocked shots. "Im a laid-back person, but I always try to play with emotion and with a chip on my shoulder," said Teague, who first scored 24 points last April 14 against Cleveland. Portland matched its biggest lead at seven on Marcus Cambys dunk at the 10:32 mark of the third, but the Hawks went on a 44-19 run that ended with Pachulias dunk with 5:27 left in the game. Blazers coach Nate McMillan thought his team was winded coming off a five-point loss Friday at Charlotte. "Thats what it looks like," McMillan said. "I mean we were missing shots like crazy. I thought they made the effort. Two things that were keys to the game, making shots and taking care of the ball, we didnt do." Atlanta had gone 1-5 since winning 90-83 on Feb. 27 at Portland. Blazers guard Brandon Roy scored 16 points, playing in his ninth game since double-knee surgery forced him to miss 30. Powell, 28, was arrested late in the afternoon for refusing to move his car for an oncoming ambulance. He was not at the game, according to Hawks spokesman Arthur Triche, who said the team was aware of Powells arrest but withholding comment.

The only question was whether he would be around long enough to reap the rewards. It turned out he was. Just barely. Nova survived into the fifth inning in his shakiest outing in months, and Robinson Canos three-run homer into the Kauffman Stadium fountains gave him a lift. Russell Martin and Derek Jeter each added a pair of RBIs and the Yankees went on to beat the Kansas City Royals 9-7 on Tuesday night. "A win is a win, no matter the way you get it," said the soft-spoken Nova (12-4), who tied Andy Pettitte and Orlando Hernandez for the most wins by a Yankees rookie in the past three decades. Nova has won eight straight decisions going back to a 3-2 defeat to the Los Angeles Angels on June 3. "We won the game. Bottom line is we won the game," manager Joe Girardi added. "He doesnt need a mulligan. I mean, hes pitched really well. Great pitchers get hit. Its going to happen." Nova finally departed with one out in the fifth, and Boone Logan, Rafael Soriano and David Robertson shepherded the game to Mariano Rivera. The veteran closer pitched another perfect ninth for his 32nd save, his second in as many nights, and his 27th in a row against Kansas City dating to May 2, 1999. The Yankees (74-46) moved a season-best 28 games over .500 and a half game ahead of the Boston Red Sox in the AL East with their 16th win in their last 22 games. Melky Cabrera hit a solo homer against his former team, and Jeff Francoeur drove in a pair of runs as the Royals took a 5-3 lead through three innings. But the Yankees blew the game open with a five-run fourth, which included a stretch of five consecutive hitters reaching to start the inning. Cano delivered the biggest blow, a rocket shot into the fountains in right field to finish off a 12-pitch at-bat and knock Danny Duffy from the game. "He saw a ton of pitches -- he fouled off a lot of tough pitches. Its just as good as it gets. Thats a great at-bat," Girardi said. "He can hit anything, thats the bottom line." The 22-year-old Duffy (3-7) allowed eight runs and eight hits, walked two and hit two after mowing through the first three batters he faced in just 11 pitches. He ended up throwing 90 before he was done. "Its a pretty big heartache to lose a game like that," Duffy said. Especially the way things started out. Billy Butler hit a two-out single in the first inning, Eric Hosmer followed with an RBI double and Francoeur lined a single -- and suddenly the Royals had a 2-0 lead. TThen Duffys command failed him, and New York pulled ahead in the third.dddddddddddd The left-hander plunked Curtis Granderson with one out, walked Mark Teixeira, allowed an RBI single to Cano and walked Nick Swisher to load the bases. Royals manager Ned Yost came out to the mound, but the brief visit didnt seem to do much good. Martins two-run double moments later gave New York the lead. Kansas City answered the three-spot with three runs of its own in the bottom of the inning. Alcides Escobar started the rally with a triple to left, and Alex Gordons chopper to third base brought him home. Cabrera followed with his 16th homer, and Butler singled and Francoeur doubled to give the Royals a 5-3 lead. Then came the Yankees eventful fourth inning, which included: a leadoff bunt single by Brett Gardner; an RBI double by Jeter; back-to-back singles by Granderson and Teixeira; Yost getting tossed for the third time this year; and Canos 21st homer of the season, estimated at 421 feet. "Just arguing balls and strikes. I thought there were a number of pitches that Duffy made that werent getting called and put him in a hole," Yost said of his ejection. "The Yankees have earned their reputation and they are a good club. I saw it for 12 years in Atlanta with the Atlanta pitchers. You have to earn your respect from the umpires. You have to kind of earn your way to get those pitches. It just takes time. "Its not right. If you make a pitch, you should be given the pitch, but sometime thats just the way it is." The Royals finally knocked Nova out of the game when Salvador Perezs two-run double in the sixth pulled them within 8-7, but New York added to its cushion with its final run in the seventh. Nova was ultimately charged with seven runs on nine hits in 5 2-3 innings. It was his worst start since he gave up eight runs on 10 hits in three innings against the Royals on May 12 at Yankee Stadium. This time, though, he at least earned the win. "He threw some good sliders and some good curveballs," Girardi said, "but it seemed when he made a mistake, and with two strikes, they hit it." Notes: Yankees RHP Freddy Garcia threw some fastballs and changeups in a bullpen session while testing out the finger he sliced in a kitchen mishap. Girardi said hes not sure when Garcia will return, but it will likely be this weekend at Minnesota. ...
