Bucks surge past Thunder 95-89 in finale

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Rookie John Henson scored a career-high 28 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, Brandon Jennings had 17 points and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 95-89 Wednesday night in a regular-season finale lacking any postseason implications.

Needing to score 70 points to surpass New York's Carmelo Anthony, Kevin Durant conceded the NBA scoring title and joined starting center Kendrick Perkins and key reserves Kevin Martin and Nick Collison in suits on the Thunder bench.

Russell Westbrook extended the NBA's longest active consecutive games played streak to 394 by playing the first 7 minutes, helping the Thunder score the game's first seven points and build a 20-9 lead.

The Bucks didn't pull ahead until Henson's two-handed slam early in the fourth quarter, during a 27-6 run.

Reggie Jackson led Oklahoma City with a career-best 23 points.
