Top minutes for Bucks: Giannis 38, Middleton 36, Zaza 36, Bayless 31.
On how to correct situation, Kidd said: "You can control it by playing time, that's one way."
Kidd: "We have one or two guys fighting, but at the end of the day you need everybody on the same page. We're not getting that right now."
Jason Kidd blasted team after loss to Hawks: "We didn't play hard enough tonight. We had another no-show tonight."
Almost forgot. Bucks' 11th straight road defeat.
Bucks have 8 games to go - 2 with Boston and one more against the Nets.
Bucks lose 101-88 and Eastern race gets tighter. Milwaukee just 1 1/2 ahead of Miami and 3 in front of both Brooklyn and Boston.
Solution to Giannis getting lost in corners: Just iso him up top over and over. THAT'S WHY I LIKE YOU JKIDD.
Horford dunks on alley-oop from Teague and Hawks lead 89-77.
Kidd has stuck with Bayless at PG in fourth quarter.
So Curry went off for 3 threes in 65 seconds against Bucks; now Korver 11 points in 65 seconds (3 triples, one deuce).
Korver just took a 40-footer at end of clock and nearly drilled it.
Giannis burying jumpers but w/o transition stuff he's struggling to get shots. That was the beauty of Dudley starting -- didn't clog middle.
Tonight's a good example why Giannis needs to be used as PF offensively. Ers (top) and Z (elbow) both clog up space you want Giannis using.
Hawks outscored Bucks 26-25 in third, including 11-0 Korver blitz.
DeMarre Carroll also killing Bucks - has 5 straight points to start fourth.
Bucks took 11-point hammer from Korver to trail by 16 but cut it to 72-64 entering fourth. Giannis has 5 baskets and think 4 are jumpers.
Teague put elbow out and caught Bayless on drive. Refs reviewing for flagrant.
Korver with three 3-pointers and a deuce in that time. Hot in Philips Arena tonight and now it's simply boiling. Hawks 67, Bucks 51.
Korver with 11-point run - all by himself - in 1 minute 5 seconds. I kid you not.
Ilyasova has scored last eight Bucks points and has 12 for game.
Teague had 2 shots blocked - by MCW and Ersan. Millsap with huge dunk but Ersan catching fire now.
Giannis starting to knock that jumper down.
Horford very efficient in first half with 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting and 6 assists.
Bucks hanging in there at 46-39 at half, but Hawks not playing particularly well either. Big guys have been good: Zaza 12/6, Big Al 14/6.
HT: Hawks 46, Bucks 39. Milwaukee battles back in final minutes of half and Middleton's floater cuts deficit to 7. Zaza with 12 and 6.
Johnny O'Bryant with rare appearance and is guarding Millsap.
JOB with the athletic finish! That happened!
Hawks lead 42-33 and Budenholzer calls a timeout with 2:35 left in half. Pachulia has 10 pts and 6 rebs against former team.
Korver scoreless but doing a nice job denying entry passes to Giannis in the post. Dudley-esque.
Giannis baseline jumper. No problem.
Moncrief proclaims this the Bucks' best lineup, apparently unaware that Bayless is still in. JB -13 today, and -11.2 pts/100 since AS break.
Mike Muscala hits a 3 and Millsap scores on break and Bucks down 38-24 with 5:20 left in half. Kidd calls a timeout.
Middleton 3-pointer did not beat shot clock so Bucks down 31-22, not 31-25. Salvatore just looked at replay.
Bucks stuck on 20. Again reserves struggle and Kidd rushes MCW, now Zaza back in lineup. Been happening a lot lately.
Bucks lineup to start 2nd: Bayless, Mayo, Ennis, Henson, Plumlee.
End of one: Hawks 25, Bucks 20. Atlanta ends quarter on 7-0 run with Antic scoring five of points and Schroder two FTs.
Pachulia with 6 pts and 3 rebs and Bucks lead 20-18 against Hawks.
Korver wearing a mask. Looks as if he likes it about as much as Ilyasova does when he wears one.
Hawks 13, Bucks 12 at first timeout. Hawks shooting 6 of 10 and Bucks 4 of 7. Mke 4 of 6 at foul line.
Bucks magic number to clinch playoff spot is 6 over Boston and Indiana. Combination of Bucks wins and opponents losses.
Bennett Salvatore, who is retiring at end of season, is lead ref tonight.
Looking for a hair stylist and barber in LA...
Great moment for D-League tonight as James Harden will be playing with Rio Grande Vipers in Toronto.
Jeff Teague will start tonight vs. Bucks, Hawks have confirmed.
MCW in lineup for Bucks tonight vs. Hawks.
MCW warming up on Philips Arena court more than 2 hours before game time - out there with Giannis and Tyler Ennis.
Looks like Wed will answer questions regarding Bucks' color speculation. Sidenote: orange teaser had nothing to do w/arena or sponsorship.
Bucks coach Jason Kidd said MCW should arrive in time to play vs. Hawks. Dudley (rest) to return Wed. vs. Bulls.
For Bucks, PG Michael Carter-Williams expected to arrive later today after attending grandfather's funeral in Hamilton, Mass.
Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said starters will play vs. Bucks after resting last game at Charlotte. He said Teague to play regular minutes.
Atlanta PG Jeff Teague (ankle) went through shootaround and expected to play for Hawks vs. Bucks tonight at Philips Arena.
S/o to Gravity for holding me down since day one.
Feel bad for Dudley, finally started to get things going last night. Playing him final 18 min not looking like such a good idea...
Dudley scored 13 points vs. Warriors as he played first extended minutes since mid-March. Bucks trying to get him back to full health.
Bucks F Jared Dudley is not with team on Atlanta trip. Decision made to give him some extra rest for back. Dudley played 25 min. vs GS.
Coach Izzo is unbelievable. 👍👍
Hard to lose a game with only two turnovers . Sheeeesh.
Didn't realize the disdain for Romo in Wisconsin lol my bad ...yall killing my mentions
Badgers fans can't be pleased to see their fellow Wisconsinite Tony Romo in a dook shirt .
Prediction: Those won't be Bucks' new colors. Call it a hunch.
Otto is kind of like Brewer in that he just looks too skinny and spastic to be any good...kudos to Corey for finding niche as energy guy.
At times fear and discouragement can hold us back but just like our dreams they are just thoughts..whichever thoughts u nourish will win.
The Ennis/Bayless/OJ/Dudley/Henson lineup has gone from "frisky!" to "OK, no hope" in about three minutes. Thanks, Steph.
Bucks announce sellout for tonight's game.
Curry drills amazing 3 in front of Dudley and Warriors up 92-75. Splash Brothers something to see.
Dudley with a couple jumpers and a layup off a hustle play in transition. Still no threes, but nice to see signs of life from bench.
Bucks open fourth with 8-0 run and cut deficit to 82-71, forcing a Steve Kerr timeout. Dudley with 6 straight points - he needs that.
Thompson went off for 17 in third quarter and Warriors' lead balloons to 82-63.
Did Henson reacquire the hitch in his free throw stroke?
Bogut talked before game how GS had several bench players who could start for many teams: Lee, Livingston certainly could.
Warriors going for 60th win tonight for franchise record. Leading 77-62 in final minute of third.
OK, Curry is on the bench. No problem for Warriors. Klay sinks 3 jumpers and a triple - 9 straight GS points. Warriors 73, Bucks 57.
