Big fourth quarter helps Hawks top Bucks

Feb 23, 2015 - 3:18 AM Milwaukee, WI ( - Paul Millsap had 23 points and 16 rebounds to lead the Atlanta Hawks to a 97-86 win over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Al Horford added 15 points and eight boards while Dennis Schroder contributed 12 points and nine assists off the bench.

Atlanta improved to 4-4 since its 19-game winning streak, which began at Bradley Center on Dec. 27, came to an end.

Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton had 19 points apiece to lead Milwaukee, which had won four straight games.

"Too many turnovers," said Bucks forward Jared Dudley. "Tip your hat to them, they played well."

The Bucks are still waiting for Michael Carter-Williams to make his team debut. The reigning Rookie of the Year, who was acquired at the trade deadline in a three-team deal from Philadelphia, has been out with a toe injury.

Milwaukee went more than six minutes without scoring from the 7:01 mark of the first quarter, as Atlanta netted 10 straight to take a 20-9 lead.

It was 22-13 after one and 48-35 at halftime. The Hawks turned 16 Milwaukee turnovers into 16 points over the first 24 minutes.

The Bucks used a 7-0 run late in the third to pull within two, but Kyle Korver caught fire early in the fourth. The All-Star sniper hit three 3s in less than two minutes, the last of which capped a 13-4 run and extended Atlanta's lead back into double figures, where it remained for the duration of the game.

"This was a game where we had to go in and slug it out a little bit," said Korver. "They made a run on us, had us all sped up ... we really had to come together and play well on both ends of the floor."

Korver made four of Atlanta's nine 3-pointers and finished with 12 points.
