Bucks coach Scott Skiles knew it would be tough to matchup with the Atlanta Hawks without Andrew Bogut but I don't think even he expected this. The Bucks cannot stop atlanta who continue to exploit mis-matches in going up 2-0 over Milwaukee in the quarterfinal series. All five Hawks scored in double figures and Josh Smith just missed a triple-double...but it's Joe Johnson who continues to bedevil the Bucks, knocking down shots with the Bucks best defender all over him. Johnson is a free agent at the end of this season and will probably be leaving. Atlanta, which has improved it's win total 5 consecutive years knows this is the year they have a chance to go deep in the playoffs.
