Jennings, Ellis lead Bucks in 97-88 win over Nets

NEW YORK (AP) -- Brandon Jennings scored 26 points, Monta Ellis had 24 points and the Milwaukee Bucks withstood Brooklyn's fourth-quarter rally in a 97-88 victory over the Nets on Sunday night.

The Bucks led by 29 points with 6:59 left in the third quarter but Brooklyn got within six after Deron Williams found Kris Humphries open for an uncontested dunk.

Ellis' layup then made it 87-79 before the Nets called a timeout with 2:24 left in regulation. On the ensuing play, Gerald Wallace lost his balance and the ball and Milwaukee's Larry Sanders made a reverse layup to extend the Bucks' lead to 10 points. MarShon Brooks, who scored 14 points, then hit a 3-pointer to bring the Nets within seven but Marquis Daniels' hit a 3-pointer to put the game out of reach.

Williams had 18 points and eight assists and Wallace added 16 points and 16 rebounds for the Nets.
