The NBA's longest losing streak and second-longest winning streak came to unlikely ends when Atlanta beat San Antonio to deny the Spurs their best 20-game start in franchise history. The Hawks snapped their seven-game losing streak, winning for only the third time this season and the first time since Nov. 25.
The Spurs have the most wins in the NBA, and the Hawks (3-16) had the league's worst record and have heard increased local speculation about the future of Coach Mike Woodson. But the Hawks enjoyed a rare highlight, rallying to win.
