Saddiq Bey’s game-winner lifts Hawks over skidding Raptors

Saddiq Bey scored a season-high 26 points, including the game-winning dunk with one second remaining, to give the Atlanta Hawks a 126-125 win over the visiting Toronto Raptors and end their four-game losing streak on Sunday.

The Raptors took a one-point lead with seven seconds left when Gradey Dick stole the ball and threw it to Scottie Barnes for a dunk. After calling timeout, the Hawks got the ball to Trae Young, who missed a floater, only to have Bey grab the offensive rebound and dunk it.

Atlanta has won two of three meetings against Toronto this season and have won three straight in Atlanta. They conclude the season series on Feb. 23 in Atlanta.

Bey also had 13 rebounds and was one of four Hawks with a double-double. Young had 30 points and 12 assists, Clint Capela had 19 points and 14 rebounds and Jalen Johnson had 17 points and 12 rebounds. Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 24.

The Raptors, who lost their fifth straight, were led by Barnes and Jordan Nwora, who both scored 24 points.

Both teams had extended hot streaks in the first half. Atlanta led by 12 points as late as 2:36 and led 34-26 after one quarter. But Toronto went on a 22-5 run to start the second quarter and built a 48-39 lead at 6:52. The Raptors led 61-57 at halftime.

Toronto pushed its lead to nine on a 3-pointer from Dennis Schroder at 11:02, but could not sustain the momentum. The Hawks tied it at 72-72 on a 3-pointer by Young, who scored 12 in the quarter. Neither team led by more than four points the rest of the quarter, and Atlanta led 97-95 going into the fourth.

The Hawks were playing without second-leading scorer Dejounte Murray, who was scratched because of right hamstring tightness. The Raptors played without R.J. Barrett (left knee swelling), Immanuel Quickley (right quad contusion) and Jakob Poeltl (left knee sprain).

The Raptors play the second leg of their six-game road trip on Tuesday at Chicago. The Hawks continue their six-game homestand on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers.
