Giannis Antetokounmpo returns for the Milwaukee Bucks after missing a couple of games, scoring 15 points and grabbed 5 rebounds while playing for just 25 minutes throughout the game. He also went active on the defensive side as he had 3 steals.
Because of a left knee injury, he missed his previous 6 games consecutively before getting cleared to return in a game in Atlanta.
Jrue Holiday, the Bucks’ highest scorer, tallied 23 total points and dished out 7 assists. Lopez added 19 while grabbing 12 boards, ending his game with a double-double.

Solomon Hill had 18 points while Capela and Huerter both chipped in 16 points.
Their sensational point guard, Trae Young, did not really have a remarkable game. He scored 15 points but went terrible in his shooting, hitting only 3 out of his 17 attempts, dropped none of his 3 three-point looks and had 6 turnovers.
Most of the Hawks’ starters played excellently, but it was not enough to take down the opposing team.
The Bucks rise up to 35-20 and maintained their current win streak while the hawks drop down to 30-26.
