Stack, Bucks Tie It Up 04.27.10 - 04:04pm
by Joseph Merkel
After four games in their first round playoff series, all is square between the Milwaukee Bucks and the Atlanta Hawks.
Jerry Stackhouse and the Bucks clinched at least one more home game by evening up the best-of-seven series with the Atlanta Hawks at two games each with a win on Monday night.
The team’s 111-104 victory means the Bucks will have a chance to close out the series in Milwaukee but they’ll have to ride their momentum into a Game 5 victory in Atlanta on Wednesday first.
Stack was used sparingly in Monday night's Game 4 win as the Bucks starters enjoyed a hot start and carried that momentum to victory. Jerry scored two points, but the Hawks ought to know they can't hold Jerry down for long. No. 24 averaged 12.3 points per game over the first three games of the series.
The Bucks will need Stack's scoring punch in Atlanta after the Hawks performed so well offensively during the Bucks' two losses at Phillips Arena early in the series. With that in mind, Jerry should see plenty of time on the floor in Game 5 as the Bucks look to keep pace wih the Hawks' high-octane offense.
The series hits the reset button as the Bucks and Hawks head back to Atlanta for Game 5
Will the Bucks be able to steal Game 5 in Atlanta and return home to try and clinch the second round?
