Who’s Playing

Milwaukee @ Atlanta

Current Records: Milwaukee 6-7; Atlanta 4-9

What to Know

After four games on the road, the Atlanta Hawks are heading back home. They will square off against the Milwaukee Bucks at 6 p.m. ET Sunday at State Farm Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’

Atlanta came up short against the Denver Nuggets this past Friday, falling 105-96. A silver lining for the Hawks was the play of point guard Trae Young, who had 30 points and nine assists along with five rebounds.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee fought the good fight in their overtime game against the Boston Celtics this past Friday but wound up with a less-than-desirable result, falling 122-113. The top scorers for Milwaukee were center Bobby Portis (22 points) and shooting guard Grayson Allen (21 points).

Barring any buzzer beaters, Atlanta is expected to win a tight contest. Now might not be the best time to take Atlanta against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past six consecutive games.

The Hawks ended up a good deal behind the Bucks when they played when the two teams previously met in July, losing 118-107. The loss knocked Atlanta out of the playoffs, so expect them to come at Milwaukee with a vengeful fire.
