ATLANTA -- Despite jumping out to a big lead in the first quarter, the shorthanded Bucks coulnd't close out, dropping an overtime game to the up and coming Hawks 136-135. The Bucks were without seven players, and Eric Bledsoe was in uniform but didnt play, so Coach Budenholzer only had eight men at his disposal. Sterling Brown led seven Bucks in double figures with a career high and game high 27 points, and Tim Frazier added 20 points with 15 assits, a season high for a Bucks player. Justin Anderson led the way for the Hawks with 24, and while rookie phenom Trae Young struggled shooting with only 12 points on 5/19 shooting, he added 16 assists and hit the game winning shot with 0.1 remaining in overtime.


The Bucks will head right to Brooklyn, to take on potential playoff matchup Nets Monday night, 6:30pm tip from New York.
