Korver leads way in 4th as Hawks top Bucks 102-97

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Kyle Korver scored 12 of his 15 points in the fourth quarter to help Atlanta beat the Milwaukee Bucks 102-97 Thursday night for the Hawks' first back-to-back victories in nearly six weeks.

Jeff Teague added 22 points, including eight in the final period when the struggling teams traded the lead several times.

The Hawks went ahead for good when Korver's 3-pointer gave them a 90-89 edge with 2:15 left.

Both teams entered the contest having lost 14 of their previous 16 games. The Hawks (28-35) have plummeted to the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference standings. They lead the surging Knicks (26-40), who have won five in a row, by 3½ games for the final playoff spot.

Brandon Knight and Ersan Ilyasova scored 20 points each for Milwaukee (13-52), which has the worst record in the NBA.
