Brandon Jennings scored 21 and Mike Dunleavy (8 for 10 FG) scored a season high 20 off the bench to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 103-82 win over the Detroit Pistons at the Bradley Center on Monday night.
Drew Gooden added 16 points as the Bucks won their second straight and 5th in the last seven games. They moved within 2-games
(9-11) of the .500 mark.
Jennings hit 4 of 8 from three-point range and continues his season long improvement in shooting accuracy.
Jennings 3-point shooting efficiency was a little over 32% a year ago. So far this season, Jennings is hitting from distance at more than 36%.
Mike Dunleavy hit a pair of three’s in the 4th quarter and appears to be hitting his stride as well, helping the Bucks shoot 51% as a team from the field. They finished 59% from 3-point range.
Veteran Bucks forward Stephen Jackson didn’t play after serving his one-game suspension for verbal abuse of an official following the Bucks 7-point loss to the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
Jackson said he wasn’t disappointed afterwards.
The Bucks are off today. They return to the Bradley Center tomorrow night against the Miami Heat.
