Milwaukee has strung together back-to-back wins to pull even in this first-round NBA Playoffs series.

The Bucks most recently came out on top Monday, when they won 111-104 in Game 4. The victories ended a 1-4 skid by Milwaukee. The team has also notched consecutive victories against the spread, ending a 1-4 run on NBA odds.

The Bucks have lost their last two road games both straight up and against the spread but, before that, they’d covered seven straight away from home.

Carlos Delfino stepped up for the Bucks in Game 4, unleashing a nice three-point assault on Atlanta.

Delfino hit six of his eight three-point attempts and finished with 22 points. Rookie guard Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 23 points and chipped in six assists and four rebounds. John Salmons added 22 points and is averaging 20.3 points per game in the series.

Overall, the Bucks had a red-hot shooting night; they hit 55.1 percent of their shots from the field.

Atlanta is smarting after squandering a 2-0 series lead. Before being swept in Milwaukee over the last week, the Hawks had won six consecutive games. Online Sports Betting at Sportsbook

They also spoiled a nice run at the sportsbook, as Atlanta was 5-0 in its last five games against the spread before heading to Milwaukee. Phillips Arena should provide a nice edge, as Atlanta is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 home games—including three straight covers.

Once again, Joe Johnson paced Atlanta in scoring, this time with 29 points. He also dished out nine assists. Jamal Crawford bounced back for the Hawks; he’d scored just a combined 16 points in Games 2 and 3, but he dropped 21 on the Bucks in Game 4.

Josh Smith scored 20 points and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.

Overall, the Hawks had a pretty good offensive night—they hit 47.5 percent of their field goals, including 52.6 percent from downtown—but they’ll need to get some stops in Game 5.

Obviously, sports betting fans can forget about the loss of Andrew Bogut; the Bucks are here to play. Atlanta will be quite fired up to regain its series lead in front of the home crowd. The Hawks have enough in the tank to win this game, but the scrappy Bucks will make it a little too close for comfort;
