The Atlanta Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 98-90 at home at Philips Arena. This was the second of four meetings between these two teams this regular season. With the win, the Hawks improved to 38-30 on the season and 2-0 in the regular season series with the Bucks. The starters for the Hawks were Jeff Teague and Devin Harris in the backcourt, Kyle Korver and Josh Smith at the two forward positions, and Al Horford at center. Zaza Pachulia (sore right Achilles) and Louis Williams (torn ACL, right knee) were the two inactives for the Hawks. Shelvin Mack, Johan Petro, and Mike Scott received DNP-CDs. The leading scorer for the Hawks was Jeff Teague, with 27 points. He also dished out 11 dimes, giving him a double-double on the night. Al Horford added 26 points and 15 rebounds, giving him a double-double as well. Devin Harris contributed 15 points and six assists. Josh Smith also had a double-double, with 12 points, 16 boards, and six dimes. The leading scorer for the Bucks was Brandon Jennings, with 21 points. In the first quarter, Devin Harris scored 10 points, but the Hawks and Bucks ended in an 18-all tie at the end of one. In the second quarter, the Hawks scored 30 points and took a 48-43 lead over the Bucks at the break. In the third quarter, the Hawks went on an 11-1 run, held the Bucks to 16 points in the quarter, and extended their lead to 77-59 heading into the final frame. In the fourth quarter, the Bucks outscored the Hawks by 10, but the Hawks came away with the eight-point victory. I think the key to this win for the Hawks was, despite having six more turnovers than the Bucks, that the Hawks were still able to score 13 more fastbreak points than the Bucks. These are usually higher-percentage shots, and it is good that the Hawks were able to take advantage of this. Great win for the Hawks in a rematch of their 2010 first-round playoff series.
