MILWAUKEE — Led by O.J. Mayo, the Milwaukee Bucks used the three point shot to build a thirteen point lead in the 4th quarter-then rallied to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, 109-104 Wednesday night in the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Mayo, who scored 28 points, sank 6 of the Bucks 13 three pointers; Gary Neal (23 points) drained 4. A 13-0 run by the Cavs gave them a 1 point lead before Caron Butler tipped in a missed shot to give the hosts the advantage for good.

Drew used an 8 man rotation.
Sanders, who missed the game with a sore thumb, is cooperating with an investigation into an off-court incident that he was allegedly involved in on Saturday night.
