MILWAUKEE, Feb. 24 (UPI) -- Al Horford's basket with 5.9 seconds left capped a furious fourth-quarter rally that boosted the Atlanta Hawks over Milwaukee 103-102 Saturday.

Jeff Teague also scored 23 points and Devin Harris helped out with 21 as Atlanta pulled out its fourth victory in five games.

Josh Smith hauled down 13 rebounds to go with 15 points for the Hawks.

J.J. Redick -- obtained in a trade from Orlando this week -- made his Bucks debut with 16 points, but it wasn't enough as Milwaukee tumbled for seventh time in eight contests.

Ersan Ilyasova contributed 19 points for the losers.
