Brandon Jennings poured in 34 points and Drew Gooden added 23 to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 105-99 win over the New Jersey Nets.
The NBA trade deadline is Thursday and Jennings has had his name tossed around in potential deals. But Jennings was able to put that aside and lead the Bucks in scoring. He also pulled down 7 rebounds and dished out 7 assists.
The Bucks started slow, but put up 58 points in the second half to pull out the win and move into a tie with the New York Knicks for the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Bucks own the tie-breaker and would be in the playoffs if the regular season were to end today.
The Bucks are off today. They return to the Bradley Center on Wednesday night to host the Cleveland Cavaliers.
