The Milwaukee Bucks made 11 for their last 13 with a 100-97 victory Friday night over the host Atlanta Hawks.
Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way for the Bucks, registering a double-double with 34 points and 13 rebounds. Greg Monroe added his own double-double performance, collecting 14 points and 10 rebounds. Hawks guards Tim Hardaway Jr. and Dennis Schroeder each scored 20-plus points, but two late buckets by Monroe negated their efforts in the loss. The Bucks and the Hawks are now tied for the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture with just a couple weeks remaining in the regular season.
