Bucks Stay Perfect At Home

Andrew Bogut and Michael Redd each scored 21 points to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 105-96 victory over Atlanta on Saturday night, extending the Hawks' road losing streak to 17 games.

Atlanta's Josh Smith, who missed the game against Seattle with a left quadriceps strain, started at center against the Bucks and scored a career-high 38 points for the Hawks.

Joe Johnson added 14 for the Hawks, who have lost four of five and are 0-4 on the road this season. Their last road win was a 96-93 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Feb. 14.

Clinging to a one-point lead, Bogut tipped in a miss to put the Bucks ahead 97-94 with 2:37 left. Smith answered with a basket for the Hawks. Redd drove the lane and scored and after Joe Johnson missed from in close, Bogut made a layup on a pass from Mo Williams giving the Bucks a 101-96 lead with 1:14 left.

After Atlanta failed to score, Williams made two free throws with 33.4 seconds left and then stole an inbound pass and scored for the final margin.
