Elton Brand had 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Jeff McInnis added 12 points and 10 assists for the Clippers, who never trailed.
Nazr Mohammed scored a career-high 30 points and grabbed 11 rebounds for the Hawks, who lost Jason Terry to a strained left hamstring midway through the first quarter and Toni Kukoc to a strained right quad late in the third.
