Teague, Horford lead Hawks past Bucks 98-90
Jennings has 21 for Milwaukee
Jeff Teague scored 27 points and Al Horford had 26, taking control after a sluggish first quarter to lead the Atlanta Hawks past the Milwaukee Bucks 98-90 Wednesday night.
Teague scored 11 points in the second quarter and a dozen more in the third as the Hawks pushed out to a 77-59 lead. Horford scored 10 points in the final period and finished with 15 rebounds, stepping up to help the Hawks hold off a Milwaukee comeback.
Led by Brandon Jennings with 21 points, Bucks closed to 94-90. But Jennings missed a free throw that could have made it a one-possession game, then came up short on a tough jumper with Teague in his face. Josh Smith clinched it by making two free throws with 27.9 seconds left.
