ATLANTA (AP) - Flip Murray scored 14 of his 20 points in the fourth quarter to help the Atlanta Hawks beat the Golden State Warriors 115-99 on Friday night.

The Warriors fell to 3-13 on the road with their fifth straight loss overall, but they held slim leads at halftime and after three quarters. The Hawks pulled away with a 13-2 run early in the fourth quarter.

Marvin Williams led Atlanta with 22 points. Joe Johnson added 19.

The Hawks led only 90-88 before their run. Two free throws by Josh Smith capped the run and gave the Hawks a 103-90 lead.

Atlanta trailed 81-79 after three quarters but outscored Golden State 36-18 in the final period. A drive by Murray gave Atlanta its first lead of the final period at 83-82 and the Hawks kept the lead the rest of the game.
