ATLANTA (AP) -- Al Horford scored 21 points and converted a key three-point play to protect a late lead, leading the Atlanta Hawks to a 102-96 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.
Atlanta led by only two points when Horford's three-point play pushed the lead to 94-89 with 1:48 remaining. Flip Murray's 3-pointer with 54 seconds left made it 99-91.
The Hawks have won three of four after losing four straight. Richard Jefferson scored 25 points for Milwaukee and rookie Ramon Sessions had 21. But reserve Charlie Villanueva, who had 19 points in 22 minutes, was the Bucks' only other scorer in double figures.
