BUCKS SURPRISE AND WIN
Fri, 28 Jan 2011 01:17 PM EST

The Atlanta Hawks looked to be gliding to an easy win in Wednesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Instead, the team underwent a complete collapse after starting the fourth quarter with 1 of 13 from the field. No one could have predicted a fourth-quarter comeback from the lowly Bucks, the league’s worst shooting and lowest scoring team. Yet somehow, they rallied in the last quarter of the game to bring an end to Atlanta’s road winning streak at six games. Closing the gap of an 11-point deficit, the Bucks surged to win the match 98-90 after regulation time. Odds.

Earl Boykins flat out admitted, “That’s foreign territory to us. We looked like a hell of an offensive team.” Player of the game Corey Maggette came through with 22 points, 4 rebounds and 1 assist before fouling out. In true NBA style, Carlos Delfino had 15 points all on three-pointers with 5 boards and 4 assists. Fresh meat Garrett Temple, who signed a 10-day contract with Milwaukee on Tuesday, was good for 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 8 points, including an 11-foot floater in the fourth to put the Bucks up 79-78. Milwaukee trailed behind Atlanta for the first three quarters, and then went on a 22-3 run at the beginning of the fourth. Scores.

The team managed the feat even without the help of Brandon Jennings [left foot], John Salmons [right hip] and Drew Gooden [left foot], all of who are out with injury. For the team that has relied mostly on defense and 42.3 percent shooting, the Bucks simply capitalized on the mistakes the Hawks made to net their fourth victory this month. Las Vegas odds.

The Hawks were only two games away from leading the NBA for the most home wins this season at 16. A win on Wednesday would have also matched their record of seven consecutive wins set back in 1993. After leading for the first three fourths of the game, Atlanta went on to give up 34 points in the fourth. As coach Larry Drew said, “We cannot allow the snowball effect in the fourth quarter — especially when we have played so well and are right there and then to have a total collapse.” Perhaps they will have better luck tomorrow against the New York Knicks.
