ATLANTA -- It didn't take long for Mike Dunleavy to change his mind about the trade that brought him to Atlanta.
The 14-year veteran almost sought a buyout when he was acquired by the Hawks in a deal that sent Kyle Korver to Cleveland on Jan. 7. But after he was persuaded to join the club by Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer, it seems like a great fit for both the player and the team.
Dunleavy, playing only his second game since the trade, scored a season-high 20 points and helped the Atlanta Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 111-98 on Sunday at Philips Arena.
Dunleavy was 4 for 5 on 3-pointers and posted his first 20-point game since April 5, 2015, when he played for Chicago.
Atlanta has won for the eighth time of its last nine games.
Milwaukee (20-19) was led by forward Giannis Antetokounmpo with 33 points, eight rebounds and six assists.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Russell Westbrook scored 36 points to record his 20th triple-double of the season, and Evan Kanter came off the bench to score 29 as Oklahoma City beat Sacramento at the Golden 1 Center.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Doug McDermott scored 31 points -- including two free throws with 6.6 seconds left -- and Chicago survived a late rally by Memphis to earn a victory at the FedExForum.
McDermott, who was averaging 9.7 points entering the game, had struggled in his past four outings by going 7-of-31 shooting with only 21 points. At the half, he recorded 22 points and the Bulls had a 52-46 lead.
With Dwyane Wade sitting out the game to rest, McDermott picked up the scoring slack. He finished 9-of-16 shooting with six rebounds and was 10-of-11 from the free-throw line.
Lou Williams delivered 26 points off the bench for the Lakers, who lost their fourth in a row and the eighth setback in 11 games. Los Angeles guards D'Angelo Russell contributed 20 points and seven assists and Jordan Clarkson had 16 points.
