Bucks finally win their 10th of the season

It took 53 games for the Milwaukee Bucks to win 10.  That 10th victory came last night, the first game back from the all-star break, a 104-100 win over the Orlando Magic at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

The Bucks (10-43) snapped a four-game losing streak as Caron Butler came off the bench to score 21 points, hitting 7 of 13 from distance.

Brandon Knight added 18 points and seven rebounds for the Bucks, who sent the Magic to their 13th straight road defeat.  Aaron Afflalo, who scored 36 against the Bucks in a game earlier this season, was held to 21 last night.

Rookie Nate Wolters (15 pts, 8 rebs., 4 assts.) buried a three with 29-seconds left to put the Bucks in the lead for good.    The Bucks wound up hitting 12 of 26 from three-point distance and 22 of 30 at the free throw line.
