The NBA is a point guard league and on Wednesday night the Hawks’ Jeff Teague dominated his starting matchup. There have been many nights this season when Jrue Holiday has outplayed, or been as good as, his counterpart. But Teague definitely got the better of him in the Sixers' 107-96 loss to Atlanta.

Teague scored 27 points and had 11 assists. While Jrue Holiday had 11 points on 3-for-12 shooting, he did exceed Teague in assists with 12.

“He is a good player,” Doug Collins said. “He gets you in that mid pick-and-roll. If you try to go under it, [Al] Horford can shoot the ball and they roll to the basket and they have excellent three-point shooting. I mean, Anthony Tolliver (21 points) really hurt us tonight with his shooting.”

“He is definitely capable of that,” Holiday said of Teague. “Sometimes when I see Jeff play he is kind of on cruise control, but when Jeff wants to turn it up he can.”

Holiday would like to turn it up himself. He is mired in a 13 of 48 shooting slump over his last three games.

“I have been terrible,” he said. “Again, I think that is fatigue. I need to try and not expend so much energy, or I have to find it someway even at the offensive end. I have been trying to take care of my body all year, but this is all knew for me.”
