NBA: Atlanta 104, Milwaukee 99

March 24, 2013 at 5:55 PM

MILWAUKEE, March 24 (UPI) -- Dahntay Jones drained the go-ahead free throw with 22.4 seconds left and Al Horford added two more Sunday to clinch Atlanta's 104-99 win over Milwaukee.

Jones' foul shot broke a 99-99 tie, and Horford, after being fouled by Ersan Ilyasova, tacked on a pair of free throws with 20 seconds remaining.

The Hawks held on for their second win over the Bucks in less than a week when Milwaukee's Monta Ellis misfired on a 3-point try and Jeff Teague hit two final foul shots for Atlanta.

Horford (24 points, seven rebounds, six assists) and Josh Smith (23 points, nine boards) led the way in the win.

Ellis contributed 20 points while Ilyasova finished with 19 and 10 boards as the Bucks tumbled to their sixth loss in eight games.
