MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks lost to Indiana's bench at home last night, 104-to-102.  Pacers' coach Frank Vogel sat out all five of his starters, saying he wanted to let them rest after they dropped eight of their last 11 during a crucial run for the post-season.

  Khris Middleton kept the Bucks in the game by making three free throws to tie the game at 102 with four-point-nine seconds to go.  Chris Copeland hit a floater with one-point-two seconds left, to move the Pacers' into the top playoff spot in the N-B-A's Eastern Conference.  Indiana is now a half-game ahead of Miami, as those two teams get ready to face each other tomorrow night.

 It was just another embarrassment for Milwaukee, which dropped to 14-and-64.  Bucks' center Jeff Adrien said resting the Indiana starters was like quote, "smack in our face."  Luis Scola led the Pacers with 24 points and nine rebounds.  Adrien had 13 points and 17 rebounds, and Brandon Knight had 25 points and 10 assists, as the Bucks lost their sixth straight game and 14 of its last 15.  Milwaukee will host Cleveland Friday night
