Salmons heats up in 2nd half, helps Bucks rally for big win

MILWAUKEE (NBA.com exclusive) -- There's a small, red "s" on the front of John Salmons' jersey -- the last letter in the word "Bucks."

On Monday the 6-foot-6 guard played as though there should have been a giant, red "S" on his front and a red cape flowing off his back.

Salmons scored 25 of his game-high 32 points in the final 17 minutes as he led a comeback that gave the Milwaukee Bucks a rousing 98-95 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

Carlos Delfino added 23 points, nine rebounds and five assists for the Bucks, and Luke Ridnour had 18 points and eight assists off the bench.

Milwaukee won its third straight and 15th in its last 17 games to improve to 39-30. Not so coincidentally, that 17-game stretch started when Salmons joined the Bucks on Feb. 19 after being acquired from the Chicago Bulls.

Before getting Salmons, the Bucks were in ninth place in the Eastern Conference with a 24-28 record.

The Bucks now hold a three-game lead over sixth place Miami and a four-game lead over Charlotte and Toronto, which are tied for the final two playoff spots.

The Bucks aren't looking down, though. They're looking up and they pulled within 5 games of the Hawks (45-25) for fourth place and a first-round home-court advantage.

After the first 31 minutes, no one would have imagined such a scenario.

"We played a good part of the game kind of bogged down," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "We couldn't get any stops, we couldn't get any ball movement. We went to our small lineup and I had four perimeter guys out there with Kurt [Thomas] and that opened it up."

Salmons led the parade as he helped rally the Bucks from a 12-point deficit.

The Bucks trailed 65-53 when Salmons hit a jumper with 4:58 left in the third period.

Salmons added another jumper, but the Bucks still trailed 74-62 after Maurice Evans' 3-pointer with 2:05 left in the third.

Then Salmons really turned it on.

He dropped in a 3-pointer with 1:44 left and drove for a reverse layup with 1:23 left to get the Bucks within 74-67 after three quarters.

In the fourth quarter, it didn't matter who was on him as the Hawks tried Joe Johnson and the bigger Josh Smith. Salmons continued to get himself open off the dribble for a jumper or get to the basket.

He scored 12 points in the first five minutes of the period, including seven straight that took Milwaukee from an 84-80 deficit to an 87-84 lead.

At times Salmons seemed unstoppable.

"It's just one of those things where everything you shoot goes in, regardless of whether you shoot it with the right form or whatever," Salmons said. "It just goes in. And once your feeling it like that you definitely want the ball."

Johnson led Atlanta with 27 points and nearly matched Salmons hoop for hoop. Johnson scored 10 straight Atlanta points at one point in the fourth.

Johnson made two straight jumpers that gave the Hawks a 95-93 lead, but Salmons took the ball hard to the basket and earned two free throws that tied it with 1:05 left.

After all that hard work for his previous 30 points, Salmons got his final two in the easiest way to put the Bucks on top for good.

Johnson missed a jumper with 48 seconds remaining, but Ridnour (18 points, eight assists) missed for Milwaukee with about 30 seconds left. However, the rebound got tipped back out to Ridnour, who reset the offense.

Salmons was about 35 feet from the basket and Johnson was trying to deny Salmons the ball. But Johnson clearly was holding Salmons' arm. Referee Dick Bavetta couldn't ignore the obvious and whistled Johnson for the foul.

"I don't know what Joe's thinking was there," Hawks coach Mike Woodson said. "I know he was trying to deny Salmons the ball because he got it going in the fourth."

Salmons accepted the gift and calmly sank the two free throws for a 97-95 lead with 21.8 seconds left.

"He [Johnson] was trying to be aggressive," Salmons said. "Maybe a little too aggressive, and the ref made the call."

After a timeout, the Hawks gave it to Johnson, but aggressive defense from Luc Richard Mbah a Moute forced Johnson to miss from the right baseline. Ridnour grabbed the rebound and was fouled with 5 seconds left.

He made the first, and when he missed the second the Hawks passed on a timeout and raced upcourt, where Jamal Crawford (21 points) didn't come close on a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

With the two teams sitting fourth and fifth in the East, they would match up in the first round. And the game took on somewhat of a playoff atmosphere in the tight fourth quarter.

"I'm sure they recognized that and we recognized that," Salmons said. "It was definitely a big game for us."
