Sparked by Dennis Schroder, who finished with a career-high 33 points, the Hawks rallied to defeat the Milwaukee Bucks 114-110 on Friday night.
Schroder thought a lack of defensive pressure and a stagnant Hawks offense allowed the Bucks to build a 20-point halftime lead.
Paul Millsap had 23 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks, who ended a seven-game losing streak on Wednesday with a win over Miami.
Schroder countered with a driving layup to put the Hawks back in front.
Milwaukee used strong long-range shooting to take a 64-44 lead at the break, just two points off the team's highest-scoring half of the season.
Miles Plumlee, who signed a four-year, $52 million deal with the Bucks in the offseason, didn't play (coach's decision) for the fourth straight game.
With about one-fourth of the regular season completed, there's a logjam of teams in contention for playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
Assigned to Delaware on Tuesday, Scott played two games with the team and averaged 8.5 points and 3 rebounds.
Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had goals for the Oilers, whose four-game losing streak began with a 2-1 home overtime loss to the Wild on Sunday.
When I had the opportunity and had a chance to go down there, I wanted to make sure I buried it for the group.
Because I felt like I should've had that one (in overtime), said Staal, who hit a pipe in overtime.
Edmonton lost 4-3 in overtime Tuesday in Buffalo after the Sabres tied the game in the final 30 seconds of regulation, and allowed three third-period goals to lose 6-5 in Philadelphia on Thursday.
Nugent-Hopkins tied it with a power-play goal with 4:39 left when his wrist shot beat a screened Dubnyk.
Dumba snapped an 11-game scoring drought with a wrist shot past a screened Talbot 4:26 into the second to tie the game.
Wild D Christian Folin, out since Nov.
Challenger John Molina failed to make weight for his 140-pound fight against unified champion Terence "Bud" Crawford, meaning Molina won't be able to fight for a title Saturday night at CenturyLink Center.
Molina (29-6, 23 knockouts) weighed in at 144 pounds Friday. He had two hours to get down to 140 and came in at 143.4 pounds on his second weigh-in.
Crawford (29-0, 20 knockouts) weighed in at 139.6.
If Molina upsets Crawford, the WBO and WBC junior welterweight titles would become vacant.
