Through 1 Quarter

The Milwaukee Bucks were expected to win this one, and so far that’s exactly how it’s playing out. They are way out in front after one quarter with a 36-25 lead over the Atlanta Hawks. Milwaukee has enjoyed the tag-team combination of small forward Grayson Allen and center Bobby Portis. The former has nine points and two assists in addition to one block, while the latter has eight points along with five rebounds.

The Bucks and Atlanta came into this matchup with previous-game wins. It’s looking like Milwaukee will be able to keep the momentum, but Atlanta still has three quarters to right the ship.

What to Know

This Monday, the Atlanta Hawks are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 115.33 points per game. They will play host again and welcome the Milwaukee Bucks to State Farm Arena, where tip-off is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET Monday. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but the Hawks ultimately got the result they were hoping for this past Saturday with a 124-121 win over the New Orleans Pelicans. Having forecasted a close victory for Atlanta, the oddsmakers were right on the money. Center Clint Capela and point guard Trae Young were among the main playmakers for Atlanta as the former dropped a double-double on 21 points and 19 boards in addition to four blocks and the latter posted a double-double on 34 points and ten assists.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee didn’t have too much trouble with the Oklahoma City Thunder at home this past Saturday as they won 108-94. The team accrued 67 points in the first half and coasted on those for the win. Milwaukee’s success was spearheaded by the efforts of center Brook Lopez, who had 25 points, and small forward Grayson Allen, who shot 5-for-6 from downtown and finished with 19 points. Lopez hadn’t helped his team much against the Minnesota Timberwolves this past Friday, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Lopez’s points were the most he has had all season.

Atlanta came up short against the Bucks in the teams’ previous meeting last month, falling 123-115. Maybe the Hawks will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the matchup and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
