The Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Brooklyn Nets at the BMOHarris Bradley Center Wednesday night 108-93. The Bucks had a strong shooting night, led by Brandon Jennings with 25 points, 20 from Monta Elllis and Ersan Ilyasova and Mike Dunleavy chipped in 17 apiece off the bench. The Bucks led by a dozen at halftime but thanks to some sloppy turnovers, Brooklyn closed the gap to 84-80 late in the third quarter. Ilyasova and Dunleavy both hit three point baskets to extend the lead to 11 and the Bucks were not threatened again. Brooklyn played without all-star guard Derron Williams. After getting out to a fast, 9-4 start, the Nets have slumped to 14-14 on the season. The Bucks meanwhile, improved to 15-12 on the year and they'll host the champion Miami Heat at the Bradley Center on Saturday night.
