MILWAUKEE — With the NBA’s all-time leading scorer in attendance, the Bucks downed the Jazz Monday night, 114-88. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar started his career with the organization and it was a night for warm memories of his legacy. The current team evokes a time when Milwaukee didn’t have the worst record in the league.
Ersan Ilyasova led the way with 13 for 14 shooting from the floor on his way to a season-high 31 points. Fellow Turk Enes Kanter scored 27 points for Utah in a battle of players who know each other well.
The Bucks post their second comfortable win in a week after also rolling at Philadelphia last Monday night. They host Sacramento Wednesday night, which gives them at least a chance at their first back-to-back victories of the season.
