Parker, Monroe help Bucks hold off Hawks in double overtime
ATLANTA (AP) -- Jabari Parker had career highs of 28 points and 13 rebounds, Greg Monroe added 24 points and the Milwaukee Bucks snapped a six-game road skid with a 117-109 double-overtime victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night. Paul Millsap finished with 27 points, and Dennis Schroder had 25 for the Hawks, who missed 32 of 41 shots beyond the 3-point arc. Atlanta has lost three straight at home for the first time since March 2014. The Bucks overcame the late absence of Giannis Antetokounmpo, who fouled out with 1:11 left in regulation, and held on despite Monroe missing a layup that could've clinched the win in the closing seconds of the first overtime. Milwaukee also overcame Khris Middleton, O.J. Mayo and Michael Carter-Williams each missing one of two free throws in the final seconds of regulation and the first overtime.
