It wasn’t pretty, but the Milwaukee Bucks won their 3rd straight, knocking off
the Sacramento Kings 98-85 at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The Bucks entered the game short-handed, playing without Mike Dunleavy, Larry Sanders, Ekpe Udoh and Beno Udrih because of injury or illness.
It resulted in some slow-going for the Bucks, until the fourth quarter when they pulled out the win.
Brandon Jennings scored 19 points and Monta Ellis added 17 points, 11 assists and 8 rebounds in the win.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute, making his first start of the season, scored 17 points and Ersan Ilyasova added 16 points and 14 rebounds off the bench.
The Bucks (11-9) moved within a half-game of the division leading Chicago Bulls (12-9).
