Bucks snap losing skid at four

Wins have been hard to come by lately for the Milwaukee Bucks.  Entering Thursday night on a four-game slide and losers of 7 of their last 9, Milwaukee was able to put together a 113-103 victory over the L.A Lakers at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

Larry Sanders had a career high 21-points to go along with his team best 13-boards in the win.  A night after being benched in the 3rd quarter and being held scoreless for the first time in his 281-game career, guard Brandon Jennings added 20-points and 7-assists in 32-minutes.  Head Coach Jim Boylan hopes they can build from this…

Kobe Bryant led all scorers with 30 for the Lakers.

Milwaukee now sits 35-36 with a magic number of four (wins and 76er loses) to get to the post season.  The Bucks are also back within 2-games of the Boston Celtics for the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference.  Oklahoma City is up next for Milwaukee as the Thunder visit Saturday night for a 7:30 tip.
