The Atlanta Hawks backed up in a corner for the first time in the 2014-15 season needed to beat the Bucks to avoid their first three-game skid of the seasons.

The Hawks jumped out to a 48-35 lead at the break only to be up by two at the end of the third frame 66-64. It was Atlanta's 22-9 run to the under six minute mark that landed them into the Winner's circle  in this one. It was Paul Milsap for the Hawks 23 points and sixteen boards that had the major impact as well as six players in double figures and shooting at an 85% clip from the charity stripe.

The Bucks get 19 points from both of their emerging young starts in Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokonmpo that kept the Bucks in the game through three. Michael Carter-Williams has yet to play and Jerryd Bayless started at the point for a Bucks Team that is currently 31-24.  Milwaukee's 4 for 16 from Kenosha and Racine, Wisconsin spelled gloom and doom as they could not get it going from the arc.
