ATLANTA (AP) -- Flip Murray scored a season-high 25 points, Josh Smith had 24 and the Atlanta Hawks raced away to their biggest victory of the season, 117-87 over the Milwaukee Bucks on Friday night.
Mike Bibby dished out 15 assists for the Hawks, who shot 56 percent from the field while winning their third in a row. The 30-point margin easily eclipsed a pair of 18-point wins and provided a bit of relief for a team that eked out a pair of
three-point wins earlier in the week.
Charlie Villenueva led the Bucks with 27 points.
