Bucks Put End To Mavs’ 12-Game Win Streak
DALLAS (AP) – Brandon Jennings had 23 points and 10 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks rallied from a 20-point second-quarter deficit for a 103-99 victory over the Mavericks on Monday night to end Dallas’ 12-game winning streak.
Andrew Bogut had 21 points and 14 rebounds, and Keyon Dooling added 16 points for the Bucks, who won their fourth in five games.
Dirk Nowitzki scored 30 points and Shawn Marion had 14 for the Mavericks, who hadn’t lost since Nov. 19 to Chicago. Dallas had also won eight straight at home over the Bucks.
With the game tied at 79, Marion hit a layup and Nowitzki swished a 3-pointer from the right wing on the next possession to give Dallas an 84-79 lead with 8:50 remaining.
But the Bucks stormed back with a 14-0 run capped by Ersan Ilyasova’s 3-pointer with 3:32 to play for a 97-88 advantage.
