|Kevin Huerter: Strikes for 23 in win|
Huerter ended Thursday's 131-107 win over Cleveland with 23 points (7-12 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes.
The Scoop: That's now four straight games with at least 20 points for Huerter, who has stepped up down the stretch for the Hawks and helped them secure a spot in the play-in tournament. The fourth-year guard hadn't hit for 20 since late January prior to this surge, but if Atlanta is going to advance to the playoffs, Huerter may need to stay locked in from beyond the arc -- he's drained multiple threes in six straight, making a blistering 55.8 percent (24-for-43) of his long-range attempts.
