Bucks falter at home, lose to Hawks 95-80

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Al Horford had 18 points and 12 rebounds, Joe Johnson added 15 points and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Milwaukee Bucks 95-80 on Monday night to snap a five-game road losing streak.

The Hawks (20-13) were back in Milwaukee for the first time since winning a pivotal Game 6 in the first round of the playoffs last year to send the series back to Atlanta where they won to advance.

They were impressive once again, opening a double-digit lead in the first quarter and shooting 50.7 percent from the field for the game.

Marvin Williams and Jamaal Crawford each had 14 points.

John Salmons scored 18 for the Bucks, who struggled in their first home game after a successful Western Conference trip.
