Super Basketball League: On Sunday, Amir Coffey equalled a career best with 21 points to help the Los Angeles Clippers snap a three-game losing streak with a 106-93 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Coffey, who is on a two-way deal, went 8-for-12 from the floor and hit five three-pointers, tying a career high. He led the Clippers in scoring for the first time this season, and he also had five rebounds and three assists.

Six other Clippers players scored in double digits, including veteran Serge Ibaka (16 points off the bench) and Marcus Morris Sr. (15 points), who followed up his season-high of 29 points against Memphis on Saturday.

Reggie Jackson and Eric Bledsoe each had 12 points, while Terance Mann and Nicolas Batum each had ten. Ivica Zubac had a game-high 13 rebounds.

Trae Young of Atlanta scored 19 points, bringing his franchise-record string of 25-plus-point games to an end at 17 games. Young was 8-for-21 from the field and 1-for-6 from beyond the arc while dishing out seven assists. Bogdan Bogdanovic had 19 points as well, one shy of his season-high.

The Clippers went on a 15-4 run to complete the first quarter with a 31-23 lead. The Hawks trimmed the deficit to two points in the second quarter, riding the hot hand of Bogdanovic, who scored 15 points in the first half, but the hosts led 59-53 at halftime.

After three quarters, the Clippers led 86-73, and Atlanta never got closer than eight points the rest of the way, leaving Atlanta with a 2-4 record on their season-long 13-day road trip.

Atlanta was without Clint Capela (left ankle) and Lou Williams (right ankle sprain) and Cam Reddish (right ankle sprain) after only three minutes of action in the first quarter.

On Wednesday, the Atlanta Hawks host the Miami Heat in the first of a two-game home-and-home series. Meanwhile, the Clippers play the Denver Nuggets in the final game of a three-game homestand on Tuesday.
