Atlanta, GA (SportsNetwork. Chris Webber Jersey .com) - Jared Dudley was perfect off the bench, making all 10 of his shots and finishing with 24 points in leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 107-77 rout of the Atlanta Hawks Friday night in the first of a home-and-home set. Dudley, who drained four 3-pointers, was one of six Milwaukee players to reach double figures in scoring. I cant say it was a perfect game, because as a coach you always want more, but it was as close to a no-hitter as you can get, Bucks coach Jason Kidd said of Dudley. Brandon Knight had 16 points and Zaza Pachulia added 14 with eight rebounds for the Bucks, who snapped a seven-game losing streak to the Hawks and matched last seasons victory total of 15 in their 30th game. Johnny OBryant and Jerryd Bayless each scored 12 points and O.J. Mayo supplied 11 as Milwaukee ended a five-game slide at Atlanta. The Bucks posted their first win at Philips Arena since Nov. 10, 2010. Paul Millsap recorded a double-double of 22 points and 11 rebounds for Atlanta, which had a five-game winning streak end. I think you gotta give Milwaukee a lot of credit, Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said. We have to do things better defensively, to make it harder for them on offense. Overall, (there are) a lot of areas for improvement. The Hawks, who were seeking a ninth straight home victory, committed 23 turnovers that resulted in 30 points for Milwaukee. Atlanta led 15-10 when Kyle Korver hit a 3-pointer, but Bayless buried a three off a pass from Dudley to put Milwaukee up 24-22 at the end of the first quarter. Dudley scored nine points and registered three steals in a strong second quarter by the Bucks, who were up 58-42 at halftime. Knight knocked down a deep 3-pointer during a 17-4 run in the third quarter that left Milwaukee with a 79-52 advantage. Game Notes The teams will play at Milwaukee on Saturday ...

RAPTORS STRUGGLING: The bottom line is the true test in sports isnt just how you handle failure, but how you handle success.Eden Prairie, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - The Minnesota Vikings returned from their bye to begin preparations for Sundays game against Chicago and said Monday they will await the leagues review on the status of running back Adrian Peterson. Peterson has been on the commissioners reserve/exempt list since September after being indicted on felony charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child in his native Texas, and will remain off the Vikings active roster until the NFL completes an investigation under the leagues personal conduct policy. In regards to Adrian Petersons status with the Minnesota Vikings, at this time his potential reinstatement is under NFL guidelines, the team said in a statement Monday. As an organization, we respect and understand the leagues process. In the interim, our focus is on the team and preparing for this weekends game against the Bears. The 2012 NFL MVP avoided jail time by reaching a plea agreement with Montgomery County (Texas) prosecutors last Tuesday. According to multiple reports, Peterson pleaded no contest to a lesser charge of one count of misdemeanor reckless assault and will receive probation along with a $4,000 fine and an order to serve 800 hours of community service. Wilt Chamberlain Jersey. Peterson was accused of using a wooden tree branch to hit his 4-year-old son as a disciplinary measure, resulting in visible injuries to the child. He and his attorneys had lobbied commissioner Roger Goodell for immediate reinstatement following his plea deal, but the request was denied. Instead, Peterson could face an additional suspension if found to have been in violation of the personal conduct policy. The NFL Players Association issued a statement on the matter last Thursday evening, with the union threatening to take legal action if further punishment is issued. Peterson has not played since Minnesotas season opener on Sept. 7. The All- Pro back was briefly reinstated by the Vikings after being deactivated for the teams Week 2 game against New England, but the club quickly reversed course and placed him on the exempt list after a wave of negative backlash from sponsors, fans and Minnesota governor Mark Dayton. The two-time league rushing champion also admitted to a court staffer that he had used marijuana prior to taking a drug test after his initial hearing back in October, which could factor into whether Goodell imposes any further discipline.
