Bucks dominate fourth quarter for 2-1 series lead

ATLANTA (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks own a two-games-to-one lead in the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals following a comeback win in Atlanta.

The Bucks have regained home-court advantage by taking Game 3, 113-102 over the Hawks.

Khris Middleton scored 20 of his playoff career high-tying 38 points in the fourth quarter. Middleton provided 10 points in a 13-3 run in the fourth that gave Milwaukee the lead.

Giannis Antetokounmpo (YAH’-nihs an-teh-toh-KOON’-poh) had 33 points for the Bucks, who trailed by as many as 13 and were down 95-88 before the 13-3 spurt.

Trae Young scored 35 points for Atlanta but was slowed in the final period after injuring his right ankle after stepping on an official’s foot late in the third.

Game 4 is Tuesday in Atlanta.
