Recap: Milwaukee vs. Atlanta

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Paul Millsap led six Atlanta players in double figures with 20 points as the Hawks crushed the Milwaukee Bucks 112-87 on Saturday.

Lou Williams added 18, Mike Scott scored 14 and DeMarre Carroll and Kyle Korver added 12 apiece for the Hawks, winners in three of their last four games. Elton Brand had 10 points off the bench in the win.

"I think this is a tough league and we didn't play well last night. Our group didn't hang their heads and they moved forward. That's what we talked about. We want to move forward," Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said.

Atlanta point guard Jeff Teague missed the game with a sprained left ankle.

Brandon Knight scored a game-high 27 points and Ersan Ilyasova added 11 points and 13 rebounds for the Bucks, who allowed 26 points on 20 turnovers.

"I'm disappointed in everybody, myself included. We're just not playing hard enough," Bucks head coach Larry Drew said.
