Ersan Ilyasova scored 25 points and pulled
down 15 rebounds and Brandon Jennings had 23 points and seven assists to lead
the Milwaukee Bucks to a 110-102 win over the Philadelphia 76ers at BMO Harris
Bradley Center.

Monta Ellis scored 18 points to go with 10 assists and Mike Dunleavy added 11
points off the bench for the Bucks, who have won three straight.

Evan Turner had 23 points and seven assists and Spencer Hawes added 21 points
and 12 rebounds for the Sixers, who have dropped 19 of their last 26 games
overall.

Milwaukee opened up a 28-18 lead after the first quarter and took a 55-47 lead
into the break.

The Bucks lead grew to as many as 14 in third after shooting 63.2 percent (12-
for-19) from the floor in the frame and Milwaukee took an 83-71 lead into the
final period.

Philadelphia, though, didn’t go down without a fight.

Turner’s 3-ball early in the fourth sparked a 9-2 run to pull the Sixers
within five, 85-80.

Jennings’ trey seconds later pushed the spread back to eight, but a 6-2
sequence had Philadelphia within four at 90-86 at the 6:47 mark.

That would be as close as the Sixers would get, though, as the Bucks cruised
to their filth win in their last seven contests with Philadelphia.

Game Notes

The Bucks shot 51.9 percent (41-for-79) from the floor … Milwaukee scored 22

shooting from the floor but did dish out a game-high 12 assists in the
setback.
