Atlanta captured its 11th straight win in dominating fashion and Horford provided the highlight of the night. With a little less than nine minutes remaining in the third quarter and Atlanta leading 61-47, Horford received the ball on the right wing and pump-faked before driving baseline around Jonas Valanciunas. Turning the corner on his way to the rim, Horford rose to throw down a one-handed dunk over the top of Johnson, who had rotated over in an attempt to protect the basket. The dunk caused Atlanta's bench to engage in some high-stepping celebrations.
The dunk was one of many high moments on the night for Horford, who posted a team-high 22 points (on 8-for-8 shooting), five rebounds and five assists. Paul Millsap added 16 points, eight rebounds and four assists.
Atlanta improved to 32-8. Toronto dropped to 26-13.
