The Milwaukee Bucks snapped the Dallas Mavericks 12-game win streak Monday night. Led by Brandon Jennings, who scored 23 points and dished out 10 assists, and Andrew Bogut who had 21 points, 14 rebounds and also swatted two shots.
The Bucks fell behind badly in the second quarter, (they were down 20 points) but came out the second half looking like a different team.
Jennings started hitting a lot of shots, and Keyon Dooling was a huge part of the second half push. He finished with 16 points and four assists, going 3-of-4 from beyond the arc. The Bucks fought with the Mavs throughout the fourth quarter and barely pulled away at the end. They were given a scare when Bogut fouled out on a controversial call.
Other key players were Chris Douglas-Roberts and Ersan Illyasova aka Turkish Thunder. CDR finished with 14 points and five rebounds. While Ersan had 12 points and three rebounds.
The Mavs were led by Dirk Nowitzki with 30 points and seven rebounds. Jason Kidd also finished with a double-double, 11 points and 10 assists.
The Bucks have the Spurs on Wednesday.
