Hawks' 5 starters named players of the month

New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - The starting five of the Atlanta Hawks were jointly named Eastern Conference Players of the Month on Wednesday.


Paul Millsap, Al Horford, Jeff Teague, DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver became just the second set of teammates to earn the monthly honor after helping the Hawks go 17-0 in January.


Dallas' Dirk Nowitzki, Steve Nash and Michael Finley shared the award to start the 2002 season.

Atlanta's franchise-record 19-game winning streak was stopped by New Orleans on Monday. Millsap, Horford and Teague were named All-Star reserves during the run, the first time since 1980 that three Hawks made the team.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden earned the Western Conference award for the second month in a row after averaging 25.8 points, 6.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds over 17 games.
