Atlanta Hawks Vs. Milwaukee Bucks: Atlanta Takes Six Game Road Winning Streak To Milwaukee

The Atlanta Hawks head back to the hardwood tonight with a road game in Milwaukee against the Bucks. Tonight's team is expected to look different than the one that last played at Charlotte as Al Horford and Marvin Williams are expected to return to action tonight for Atlanta. 

The Hawks successfully bounced back from their embarrassing 100-59 home loss last Friday to the New Orleans Hornets. Atlanta bounced back on Saturday pulling out a 103-87 road win over the Charlotte Bobcats behind 32 points from Joe Johnson

Al Horford missed the last two games with an ankle injury suffered in a game against the Miami Heat. Marvin Williams has been out of the lineup since December 29th after injuring his back in a fall against the Golden State Warriors. Both players practiced yesterday and are expected to suit up for tonight's game. 

The Hawks are 1-1 against the Bucks this season losing 108-91 at Philips Arena early in the season. Atlanta rebounded with a 95-80 victory in Milwaukee in December. The teams were scheduled to play on January 11th but that game was postponed until March 15th due to inclement weather that had struck the Atlanta area. 

The Bucks are just 3-7 in their last ten games and are battling injury issues of their own. They will be without Brandon Jennings for tonight's game who is still recovering from a broken foot. John Salmons (hip) and Drew Gooden (foot) are both listed as questionable for tonight's game. 

Tip off is scheduled for 8:00 pm Eastern Time tonight. For more Hawks coverage check out Peachtree Hoops
