Antetokounmpo nets 27 as Bucks defeat Hawks

MILWAUKEE (AP) — Giannis Antetokounmpo had 27 points and 14 rebounds and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Atlanta Hawks 129-115 on Sunday night to snap a two-game losing streak.

Antetokounmpo had eight assists, finishing two shy of a triple-double.

Bobby Portis added 21 points, and Khris Middleton had 19 for Milwaukee.

De’Andre Hunter led Atlanta with a career-high 33 points. John Collins had 30 points, but the short-handed Hawks saw their three-game winning streak end.

The Bucks outscored the Hawks in the paint 60-30 and had a 51-38 advantage in rebounds.

Milwaukee’s lead was 24 points at 58-36 in the second quarter. The Hawks narrowed the deficit in the third period.

Okongwu’s block of a shot by Bobby Portis set up Hunter’s apparent 46-foot 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded to end the third period. Following a lengthy review, officials ruled the shot came after time expired, leaving the Bucks with a 94-83 lead entering the fourth quarter.

Bucks face Toronto on Wednesday night in Tampa, Florida.
