The Milwaukee Bucks are a season high 5-games over .500 after trampling the Detroit Pistons last night 117-90 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Bucks had to overcome a slow start as they trailed 28-13 late in the 1st quarter.
After leading 52-42 at the half, the Bucks exploded for 39-points in the 3rd quarter with 20-points coming off the hand of Brandon Jennings. Jennings ended the game with 30-points and was the difference according to Head Coach Jim Boylan:
The win also served as a revenge game for the Bucks. Milwaukee dropped the previous 2-meetings this year with the Pistons; one at home and one on the road.
The Bucks continue their 4-game in 5-night stretch tonight as they return to the BMO Harris Bradley Center to host Chicago. Milwaukee trails Chicago by 2.5 games in the Central division. After an off day Thursday, Milwaukee visits New York Friday night before returning home to face the Magic Saturday.
