CHICAGO -- Jared Dudley went 10-for-10 from the field a day after Christmas and the Milwaukee Bucks scored a lopsided 107-77 road win over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night at the Philips Arena.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Dudley became the "first player in NBA history to shoot 100 percent form the field with at least 10 field goal attempts, including at least three 3-point attempts."
Dudley, who finished with 24 points, also drilled all four of his shots beyond the 3-point arc. He capped his performance with four rebounds and four steals in 24 minutes off the bench.
Brandon Knight tallied 16 points and five assists and Zaza Pachulia added 14 and eight rebounds for the Bucks, who evened their record at 15-15 for sixth place in the Eastern Conference. Johnny O'Bryant and Jerryd Bayless also had 12 apiece for the Bucks.
It was a stunning loss for the Hawks, one of the hottest teams in the league with a five-game winning streak and winners of 14 of their last 15 assignments.
Atlanta, which shot 31 of 76 field goals, missed 19 of their 23 triples. Paul Millsap led the Hawks with 22 points and 11 rebounds while Al Horford pitched in 13. Jeff Tague contributed 12 but no other Hawk scored more than 10.
Despite the home shocker, the Hawks remained at second place in the Eastern Conference with an impressive 21-8 slate. (Homer D. Sayson)
