Bucks find the shooting touch

The Milwaukee Bucks have struggled to shoot the ball with any consistency

this season, in what coach Scott Skiles calls a make-or-miss league.

Last night, the Bucks found their offensive way, knocking off the Brooklyn Nets 108-93 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.  The Bucks extended their winning streak to 13-straight games over the Nets.

The Bucks shot 47% from the field and 58% from 3-point range (10 of 17).  They also made 18 of their 19 free throw attempts.

Brandon Jennings poured in 25 points and Monta Ellis added 20 for the Bucks.  It didn’t stop there either.  Ersan Ilyasova had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Mike Dunleavy scored 17 points, both off of the bench.

The Bucks outscored the Nets 33-18 in the second quarter and led 55-42 at the half.  Brooklyn got to within 4-points in the second half but the Bucks used a
9-2 run to break it open.

The Bucks are 15-12 with the win.  They’ll host the Miami Heat next at the BMO Harris Bradley Center on Saturday night.
