MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks came along just in time to help the Atlanta Hawks rebound from a tough loss with a big victory. Paul Millsap scored 20 points to lead six Hawks in double figures and key the decisive surge that helped Atlanta rebound from a 26-point home loss for a 112-87 win over Milwaukee on Saturday night. "We know if we dont put it behind us, we know what can happen," Millsap said. "So, we had to move on to the next team -- especially if you want to win in this league." Millsap scored 14 points during a 24-5 run that started at the end of the second quarter and put Atlanta ahead 73-47 with 8:24 left in the third. The margin grew to 96-64 heading into the fourth and Atlanta beat Milwaukee for the eighth time in their last nine games. "Our focus was to come out and get back to competing," Millsap said. "Guys worked pretty hard out there and the defence was good." Thats what head coach Mike Budenholzer thought after his team won for the third time in four games. "We didnt play last night, but our team didnt hang their heads," he said. "They moved forward." Reserve Louis Williams added 18 points for the Hawks. Shelvin Mack scored nine points starting at point guard for Jeff Teague, who sprained his left ankle during the Hawks 105-79 loss to San Antonio on Friday. It was their season-low in points. Williams alternated with Mack running the offence on Saturday. Brandon Knight scored 27 points for the Bucks, who lost for the 11th time in 12 games. Ersan Ilyasova and Khris Middleton added 11 apiece. While the Hawks worked hard, the Bucks simply didnt. Milwaukee coach Larry Drew, who faced the Hawks for the first time this season after being fired by Atlanta last season, closed the locker room and challenged the Bucks lackadaisical style. "This was a totally, totally unacceptable performance," he said of his 21-minute message. "Do we have anything inside that will allow us to go out and compete at a high level?" John Henson and Caron Butler came off the bench to score 10 points, but it came with the game already decided. "Im going to have to go with the guys that play hard," Drew said. "Youre not going to play hard? Youre not going to play." Henson downplayed the tone of the message. "He just said we got to keep fighting, man," Henson said. "He said hes been in the league for 37 some years and hes seen it all. So, we just got to find that fire in us, to have that pride for the name on the front and the back of our jerseys". Teague hurt his ankle when he landed on Tim Duncans foot late in the second quarter on Friday. Atlanta regained its shooting touch from 3-point range, making 13 of 24 3s after hitting only 2 of 13 attempts against San Antonio. Williams made two of the Hawks four 3-pointers during a 16-9 run late in the first quarter and Mike Scotts 3 capped an 11-3 surge just before the half for a 60-45 lead. DeMarre Carroll scored 12 points in his return to the starting lineup after missing the game against the Spurs with a left hamstring strain. "Once Im on the court, Im on the court," he said. "My mind goes to junkyard dog mode, and I just grind it out. I have to give credit to the training staff. I got treatment like three or four times today." Scott finished with 14 points, Kyle Korver 12 and Elton Brand 10 as the Hawks beat Milwaukee for the fifth consecutive time, the first time theyve done that since a taking six straight from March 8, 1996, to March 7, 1997. Atlanta swept the four-game series last season. "We just tried to come out and compete," Carroll said. "When we let our defence do the talking, our offence flows easily. We were playing unselfish." Giannis Antetokounmpo, playing with a sore back, scored five points for NBA-worst Milwaukee (8-35). Rookie Pero Antic (stress fracture in right ankle) and Carroll already were out before Teagues injury left the Hawks with just 10 players on Friday. Antic had replaced starting centre Al Horford, out for the season with a torn right pectoral. NOTES: Korver was 3 of 4 from beyond the arc, extending his NBA record to 112 consecutive games with a 3-pointer. .

It was well worth the wait. Manning and the Denver Broncos waited eight long months, then another 33 minutes to get the season started because of a lightning storm.TORONTO - The starting pitcher tossed a brilliant game. The manager made the correct move going to his bullpen. The Blue Jays lost the game. Whats the saying about best laid plans? All it took was one pitch. The scenario: Blue Jays up 2-0 with two outs in the top of the seventh inning. Marcus Stroman, to that point, had two-hit the White Sox. Only two White Sox hitters, Adam Dunn (three times) and Jose Abreu had reached base off the Toronto starter. Dayan Viciedo was due up as the go ahead run. Manager John Gibbons made the call to the bullpen for Dustin McGowan, his most trusted right-handed reliever not named Casey Janssen. McGowans first pitch was a slider. It was a cement-mixer, as seamheads like to say, in that the slider didnt break. It caught the entirety of the plate. Viciedo was looking for it, stayed back and launched a go-ahead three-run home run into the leftfield seats. There was no doubt where the ball was headed the moment Viciedo made contact. The White Sox led 3-2 and wouldnt cough it up en route to a 4-3 victory. Gibbons, it says here, made the right move going to McGowan. It gave Viciedo a different look. It allowed Stroman to leave the game feeling good about his performance. The result, clearly, was undesirable. The strategy made sense. Still, Gibbons admitted he second-guessed himself. "Yeah, of course," he said. "I mean, if you could do things over you leave him in but my thinking was (Stroman) pitched his butt off, its unchartered territory, you dont want him to lose the game right there. Thats the way it goes. You always look back on things like that. I had a plan. It just didnt work." The Blue Jays bullpen blew its 10th save of the season, which puts it in the middle of the pack. Pittsburghs 14 blown saves rank as the worst in the majors. Torontos number is made less hideous when you factor in that six of the blown saves came in a span off 15 games from mid-April to early May.ddddddddddddYet, after McGowan was tagged with Chicagos third and fourth runs on Saturday, Torontos bullpen ERA climbed to 4.45. Thats fifth-worst in baseball. The late-game meltdown sullied the second consecutive strong start by Stroman, who was coming off an eight-inning, four-hit performance in a win over the Yankees on Monday. "Its tough to deal with but its part of baseball," said Stroman of the Viciedo home run. "I have 100 per cent faith in Dustin to come in and get that out every time. He makes a pitch like he knows he can and were not even having this conversation. I know McGowans going to be right back to it. Im not worried about it. Hes been great for us all year, coming out of the pen, so Im not stressing about it at all." The Jays were held to two runs, a Darin Mastrioanni two-run homer in the fourth, on four hits over seven innings by White Sox ace Chris Sale. He picked up the win to run his record to 7-1. ABREU IMPRESSES BLUE JAYS Jose Bautista was planning to speak to Jose Abreu about taking part in the home run derby, part of the All-Star Game festivities on July 14 in Minneapolis. Manager John Gibbons is impressed with the 27-year-old Cuban rookie, whose 25 home runs tie him with Edwin Encarnacion and the Orioles Nelson Cruz for the most in baseball this season. "A pretty good looking player," said Gibbons. "The numbers speak for themselves. Those kids that come over from Cuba, theyre all pretty damn good so that really shouldnt surprise anybody. They put a lot of money into him for a reason and theyre reaping the benefits right now. Hes got a nice, short, simple swing and hes producing with it." Abreu leads the majors with a .633 slugging percentage. To go with his 25 home runs, he has 16 doubles and a triple, meaning almost 57-percent of Abreus hits have gone for extra bases. ' ' '
