The Bucks took a 60-34 lead into the locker room at halftime.  Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis scored 16-points each to lead the Bucks.  Sam Dalembert added 14 points 6 rebounds and 3 blocked shots.  Bucks starters outscored the Pacers starters 62-33.

The Pacers shot just 37% for the game and lost their 5th straight on the road.

The last time the two teams met, Larry Sanders was ejected from a game at Bankers Life Fieldhouse after a melee broke out.  Last night’s game was much quieter, although Bucks forward Larry Sanders did draw a flagrant 1 foul on a shot by Tyler Hansbrough. 

The Bucks return to the BMO Harris Bradley Center again Saturday night when they face the New Orleans Hornets.
