Shoutout: Yesterday, we asked subscribers to predict the winner of Bucks-Hawks, the score, and the leading scorer. Milwaukee won 120-109, with Atlanta’s Bogdan Bogdanovic putting up a game-high 28.

Hopefully, you took Sports Section’s advice and had the Bucks -4 and the under-230.5.

Subscriber Marty Magee (@martymagee) had Milwaukee and was closest to the final score. Nice job, Marty!

Keep the picks coming, everyone!
