MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The Milwaukee Bucks scored 69 points in the first half on the way to a 131-102 route of the lowly Charlotte Bobcats Monday night in the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
The 131 points were the most by a Milwaukee team since 2009. Larry Sanders scored a career-high 24 points (13 rebounds); Ersan Ilyasova added 22 in the Bucks 10th straight win over the Bobcats in Milwaukee.
J.J. Redick’s 20 points represented his highest output in a Bucks uniform.
Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings each tallied 19 points; Ellis added a career-best 14 assists and had 6 steals.
The Bucks magic number for clinching a playoff spot dipped to 3; Boston lost; so coach Jim Boylan’s team is 1 1/2 games behind the Celtics for 7th place.
