For the Bucks, six players finished in double digits with Brandon Knight scoring 16 points and Zaza Pachulia added 14, but this night belonged to Jared Dudley who shot a perfect 10 of 10 from the field to finish with a game-high 24 points in just 24 minutes off the bench.

As for the Hawks, Paul Millsap continued his fantastic season with 22 points on 8 of 10 shooting including 1 rebounds, but other than 13 points from Al Horford and 12 points from Jeff Teague, the rest of the Hawks were absolutely terrible. As a team, the Hawks shot just 40.8 percent from the field and 4 of 23 from the three-point line, but it was just the overall sloppiness which led to 22 turnovers and easy baskets for the Bucks.
In ATS trends, the Hawks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games overall, while the Bucks are 5-0 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Head to head, the Hawks are 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings in Milwaukee and the Road team is 6-0 in the last six meetings overall.
Plain and simple, the Hawks have been one of the best teams all season and should bounce back tonight after getting absolutely embarassed at home last night. I'll take the Hawks by double digits.
