Milwaukee Bucks fall 101-90 to Atlanta Hawks
ATLANTA — Jeff Teague scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter and the Atlanta Hawks overcame poor 3-point shooting to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 101-90 on Friday night.
Paul Millsap had 14 points and 13 rebounds and Al Horford also had 14 points to keep the Hawks’ late-season surge going. They have won seven of eight and 10 of 12 to move to third place in the Eastern Conference.
The Hawks (43-30) are a season-high 13 games over .500 and got there despite making only 5 of 32 3-pointers.
Jabari Parker led Milwaukee with 19 points. John Henson had 17 points and 10 rebounds.
Atlanta dodged Milwaukee’s attempt for a sweep of the season series. The Bucks won the first two games against the Hawks in overtime, including a double-overtime win in Atlanta on Feb. 20.
