MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks beat Brooklyn 108-to-93 last night at the B-M-O Harris Bradley Center. The Bucks out-shot the Nets 48-to-39 percent, as Milwaukee won its 13th straight game over the Nets’ franchise.
The Bucks led by 13 points at the break. The Nets cut the lead to four in the fourth quarter when Milwaukee went on a 9-to-2 run to put this one away. The Bucks made 10-of-17 from three-point range, and they made all but one of their 19 free throw attempts.
Brandon Jennings led Milwaukee with 25 points and six assists. Monta Ellis had 20 points, seven assists, six rebounds, and six steals. Coach Scott Skiles said the Bucks didn’t do anything different with their ball movement – but they made their shots and quote, “Some nights, it’s as simple as that.”
Brooklyn lost its second game in as many days – and Nets’ guard Deron Williams missed the contest with a sprained right wrist. Brook Lopez led Brooklyn with 21 points and 10 rebounds. The Nets returned to .500 at 14-and-14.
The Bucks improved to 15-and-12, and they’ll host the Miami Heat on Saturday night.
