MILWAUKEE - Andrew Bogut made a tip-in at the buzzer last night to give the Milwaukee Bucks a 97-95 victory over the Indiana Pacers at the Bradley Center.
Luc Richard Mbah a Moute made a lob to the basket on an inbounds play with five-tenths-of-a-second left. And Brandon Jennings screened Jeff Foster away to give Bogut a clear shot at the tip-in. It was another poor shooting night for the Bucks, who were out-shot 43-to-36 percent. But it was enough to give Milwaukee its third victory in its last 11 games – and its sixth win in a row over Indiana. The Bucks led by eight at the half, but they trailed by one going into the fourth quarter.
Danny Granger scored 26 points for Indiana, which lost its fifth straight at the Bradley Center and dropped to 10-and-10 overall. Jennings led the Bucks with 22 points, and Ersan Ilyasova had 21 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Milwaukee is now 8-13. They’ll host Houston tomorrow night.
