ATLANTA (AP) - Paul Millsap had a season-high 33 points, Lou Williams scored 10 of his season-best 28 in overtime and the Atlanta Hawks rallied to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 118-116 on Saturday night.

Al Jefferson had 24 points and a season-high 23 rebounds, and Gerald Henderson added 22 points for Charlotte.

Playing their first game since leading scorer and rebounder Al Horford sustained a torn pectoral muscle, the Hawks trailed by 14 after Henderson hit a 20-foot fadeaway jumper with 4:19 left in the third quarter.

But Atlanta, which has won two straight and five of six, rallied to force overtime when backup center Pero Antic made a 3-pointer off one leg from the right wing with 3.1 seconds left in regulation.
