Milwaukee shot 41.1 percent from the field (37-for-90) and made only 4 of 24 3-point shots.
Aside from defending well at the perimeter, the Hawks were a presence at the basket, particularly in the second half, when they gave up 20 points in the paint after allowing 32 in the first half.
After blocking 11 shots in the first game, the Hawks blocked eight more Tuesday, many of them at the basket. Rookie guard Brandon Jennings, who lit up the Hawks for 34 points Saturday and was held to nine Tuesday, was a favored target. He was rejected on four different forays to the rim.
Said Bucks coach Scott Skiles, "There are a lot of problems in dealing with them, but if you're going to drive to the basket against a team that had double-digit blocks and throw the ball right in their arms, you've got an issue there."
Hawks forward Marvin Williams, who primarily was assigned to Salmons, got a lot of help on switches and double teams. Notably, Salmons, who has a knack for getting to the free-throw line, took only one free throw. He made 10 of 23 shots and missed all five 3-point attempts.
"[You have] to make him work," Williams said. "You've got to stay ready when you're playing somebody like that."
"John, prior to coming into the playoffs, kind of had his way with our team," Woodson said. "Guys are taking individual challenges."
