The second quarter was not kind for the Atlanta Hawks as they were ran out of the gym by the Milwaukee Bucks by scoring only 12 points, and went into the half trailing by 12 points. The third quarter was a little better as the Hawks played right with the Bucks, but the fourth quarter is when the Hawks turned it on and came back to win 99-94. In the fourth quarter the Hawks exploded for 34 points and held the Bucks to only 18 points.
As the Hawks crawled back in this game in the fourth quarter it was Jannero Pargo who led the way by scoring all of his 11 points in the final frame, and it was Vladimir Radmanovic who made the go-ahead three-pointer with 11.9 seconds remaining in the game to put the Hawks up for good.
The Hawks were led by Josh Smith who had a monster game with 24 points, 19 rebounds, four assists and three blocks. The rest of the Hawks scoring was spread out with eight other players scoring at least seven points. All of this was done without Joe Johnson who sat out the game due to tendinitis bothering his left knee.
