ATLANTA (AP) — Lou Williams sank four 3-pointers in the final seven minutes, including a jumper that gave Atlanta its first lead of the second half, Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 32 points and the Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 111-104 on Sunday night.
Williams had 15 points while leading Atlanta’s late long-distance attack. The Hawks overwhelmed the Bucks with their barrage of eight 3-pointers in the final seven minutes.
Giannis Antetokounmpo had 31 points with 14 rebounds, but the Bucks couldn’t complete another season sweep of an Eastern Conference rival. Milwaukee settled for two wins in its three-game series against the Hawks one day after a 132-94 rout of Philadelphia completed the sweep of that series.

Hawks: Atlanta’s last win over Milwaukee came on March 31, 2019. … Coach Nate McMillan said Young “hasn’t done anything the last couple of days” in terms of basketball activities while rehabbing the ankle injury. Young’s status is uncertain for Monday’s game at Detroit, though he said in a TV interview near the Hawks bench during the game he is improving every day. … C Clint Capela, who missed one game with back contusion, was cleared to start after participating in pregame warmups. He had 14 rebounds, giving him at least 10 for the 13th consecutive game and 48th time in 53 games.
