first NBA team to win 20 straight games in almost two years on Monday when they
visit the Smoothie King Center to take on the New Orleans Pelicans. The 2012-13
Miami Heat won 27 straight, starting almost two years to the day on Feb. 3,
2013. The Hawks could become just the sixth team in NBA history to win 20 in a
row with a victory on Monday. Atlanta is the only team in the league with 40
victories and hasnt held the NBAs top spot in the standings this late into the
season since the team moved to Atlanta for the 1968-69 season. The Hawks went
17-0 in January and became the first team in NBA history to go 17-0 during a
calendar month. They own a 12-game winning streak against the Western
Conference, which is a franchise record, and have won five straight on the road
versus the west, which is the first streak that long for the team since 1993.
Atlantas streak reached 19 with a 91-85 home victory over the Philadelphia 76ers
on Saturday. Al Horford had 23 points and 11 rebounds as the Hawks held on for
victory. They had to battle to stay ahead down the stretch despite leading by 21
points in the second quarter and 15 in the third. The Sixers took a two-point
lead on Nerlens Noels dunk with under three minutes remaining, but Horford tied
it at the other end and Dennis Schroder knocked down a straightaway 3-pointer to
give the Hawks the lead for good with 1:35 left. They came all the way back but
coach said just to play our game, said Schroder. Just keep playing with pace and
thats what we did and we won the game. Schroder and Paul Millsap scored 15
points apiece for the Hawks, who found out Saturday that forward Thabo Sefolosha
will miss up to eight weeks with a right calf strain. Starting small forward
DeMarre Carroll will continue to sit with a left Achilles strain. The Pelicans
have won five of their last six and are 3-1 on this six-game homestand, which
concludes Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. On Friday, Eric
Gordon scored a season-high 28 points to lift the Pelicans to a 108-103 victory
over the Los Angeles Clippers. Ryan Anderson netted 24 points and went 5-of-11
from 3-point range, while Alexis Ajinca supplied 17 points and nine rebounds off
the bench and Tyreke Evans had 11 points and 12 assists for the Pelicans. Its
good to be able to win like that in front of our crowd, New Orleans head coach
Monty Williams said. We got hot and our defense was effective. LAs Chris Paul
scored 10 points during a 12-0 swing to get the Clippers within 95-94 with 5:07
remaining. With under two minutes to play, Gordon knocked down a turnaround
fadeaway shot and Dante Cunningham threw down a dunk to give the Pelicans a
six-point lead and seal the win. Anthony Davis missed the win against the
Clippers with a groin strain, but he is probable for Monday. Jrue Holiday is
still out with a stress reaction in his lower right leg. The Hawks beat the
Pelicans in Atlanta on Nov. 28, but New Orleans prevailed in the three prior
meetings. The Hawks are 2-1 in their last three in the Big Easy.

.Tzavelas opened the scoring in the 11th and Pereyra added another in the 51st.
Emmanuel Kone pulled one back in the 80th and Levadiakos missed several chances
to level in the last 10 minutes. LONG POND, Pa. -- Denny Hamlin won the pole the
first time he ever raced at Pocono Raceway. Eight years later, Hamlin still had
the speed in the No. 11 Toyota to take the top spot at the triangle track.
Hamlin turned a track record-lap of 181.415 mph Friday to win the NASCAR Sprint
Cup pole, a throwback to the times he dominated qualifying at one of his best
tracks. Hamlin is a four-time winner at Pocono, matching his Martinsville mark
for most career wins at a track. He swept two Pocono races on its former rugged
surface from the pole in 2006. He also won races on the 2 1/2-mile track in 2009
and 2010. "I hope this track has aged a little bit," he said, "because when it
was old and worn out was when I was really good at the track." With blistering
speeds, Hamlin zipped his way to his second track record and pole of the season
after topping the field at Bristol. Hamlin has 19 poles in 304 career Cup
starts. Hamlin hasnt had much success with Joe Gibbs Racing at Pocono since
2010, finishing in the top 10 onlt twice and crashing out twice -- including a
43rd-place run last August. "We havent been that strong here since the repave,"
he said. "Its just a handful of things that make you off here and there. These
tracks are almost like superspeedways now in the sense that youve got to have
the fastest car in the right position to win them. BBack when I was winning in
06 on the old track, you could make up tons of position.

. That would never happen today because the cars are
running so fast and so equal." Kurt Busch starts second for a needed lift for
his Stewart-Haas Racing team. Busch has otherwise struggled outside of the one
win that all but locked him into the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. "We
came here with a new approach to try to get our front ends to settle into the
track a little better," Busch said. "I was really surprised that we had the
speed for the pole today in our first attempt to try something a little
different. Its great to cash in." Brad Keselowski, Kevin Harvick and Jeff Gordon
completed the top five. Coming off wins in the Coca-Cola 600 and at Dover,
Jimmie Johnson will start 20th in his bid for a third straight victory. "I just
got too greedy down in two and lost the nose in the corner exit," Johnson said.
"I feel bad for my guys, but this ones on me." Keselowski continued his run of
qualifying success. Last weeks pole winner at Dover, Keselowski has started
third or better in the No. 2 Ford a whopping 10 times in 13 races this season.
"Im not sure why, but Im not going to complain about it either," he said. "It
does seem qualifying day has been the highlight of our week, for sure."
