You just can’t figure out these Hawks.

Without four players, including starters Josh Smith and Jeff Teague, the depleted Hawks stunned the Lakers 96-92 Wednesday night at Philips Arena. The victory snapped a three-game losing streak for the Hawks and was just their second win in the past eight games.

Devin Harris had a huge fourth quarter to bring the Hawks back from a four-point deficit in what was a critical win for the struggling team. Harris finished with 17 points, 10 in the final period.

The Hawks had to survive late as Kobe Bryant hit a 3-pointer with 18.2 seconds left to pull the Lakers within a point, 93-92. After Kyle Korver made one of two free throws, Bryant’s potential game-tying jumper with three seconds left missed. The Lakers star, guarded by Dahntay Jones, suffered a severe left sprained ankle sprain and is out indefinitely.

“I told the guys before the game, ‘Listen guys, go out there and take your shots on offense, the ones you work on, and on defense let’s help each other. Let’s play hard, man,’” said Al Horford, who finished with 14 points and 14 rebounds. “This is an important game and I wanted to make sure we set the tone early. I felt that everyone in this locker room that was playing contributed today. It was awesome.”
