MILWAUKEE (AP) – Mike Scott scored 17 points and the Atlanta Hawks ended the regular season with a 111-103 win Wednesday over the Bucks, hours after Milwaukee owner Herb Kohl announced he was selling his team.

Dennis Schroder added 15 for the Hawks, who rallied from a 12-point deficit in the first half.

Atlanta is locked into the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs and a first-round date with the Indiana Pacers. Scott started for forward Paul Millsap, who was rested to get ready for the postseason.

Brandon Knight scored 31 points to lead the Bucks, who finished an NBA-worst 15-67.

Milwaukee’s dismal season is over, though there is more certainty about the team’s future after the prospective new owners said they wanted to build a new arena in Milwaukee.
