Hawks finish the season with a 24-58 record

Taurean Prince scored 27 but the Hawks finished the season with a 121-113 home loss to the 76ers Tuesday night.

The Hawks (24-58) finished the season tied for third in the NBA draft lottery standings. Their record is the fourth-worst record in franchise history.

Prince put up a franchise-record 18 3-pointers, making six.

Former Hawks player Ersan Ilyasova scored 26 for Philadelphia (51-30), which has won 15 straight games. Another ex-Hawk,  Marco Belinelli, had 20. J.J. Redick scored 28 to lead the 76ers.

Philadelphia overcame a tough night for rookie star Ben Simmons, who missed the morning shootaround after coming down with the stomach flu. He still managed to put up 13 points, 10 rebounds and six assists.
