By Andrew Wagner, The Sports Xchange MILWAUKEE, Wis. -- Brandon Jennings scored 18 of his 20 points in the third quarter, erasing a four-point halftime deficit as the Bucks beat Golden State, 109-102, Saturday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. After attempting just one shot in the first half, Jennings’ back-to-back three-pointers midway through the third quarter were the turning point in what had been a close game to that point. He went 6 of 9 from the field during the quarter, including five three-pointers. Ersan Ilyasova also switched gears in the second half, scoring 12 of his 18 points after intermission while pulling down 12 rebounds.

MILWAUKEE -- If Brandon Jennings is bothered about being left off the Eastern Conference All-Star team, he's not talking about it; he'll let his game answer any questions. Jennings did plenty of talking on the court Saturday when he scored 18 of his team-leading 20 points in the third quarter, hitting five of seven 3-pointers in the process, leading Milwaukee to a 109-102...
MILWAUKEE -- Last night's loss in Cleveland resonated throughout the Milwaukee Bucks locker room.
It hurt. It stung.
Saturday night, the Bucks played like the defeat made them angry. Energized and outworking the Warriors, Milwaukee used a big third quarter to grab a 109-102 victory over a good Golden State team, moving again to a season-high four games over .500.
Four steps forward, one giant step back.
Each time the Milwaukee Bucks have gone four games over .500 this season, a team with a losing record has awaited on the schedule, presenting them with a tremendous opportunity to go five games over for the first time since 2010.
After a 113-108 loss Friday night to a Cleveland team that entered the game with an 11-32 record, Milwaukee has...

Everyone’s idea of what constitutes a “poster” dunk is different. Some consider a poster to be any jam during which a defender is on the scene. Others suggest that there has to be contact. Many take a more literal approach to the term and pass judgment based on whether or not the dunk would look good on a bedroom wall. The best definition I’ve ever been able to come...

Could Brandon Jennings be an All-Star after all?
The path that appeared closed last Thursday when the Bucks point guard wasn't named as one of the Eastern Conference reserves could be open again.
Boston point guard Rajon Rondo elected by fans to start the All-Star Game suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's overtime win over Miami and will miss the rest of the season.
Two guards some thought should have been All-Stars have the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks in position for playoff runs as the second half of the season unfolds.
But after having respective three-game winning streaks snapped on Friday, Stephen Curry and Brandon Jennings will both look to get their teams back on track Saturday night as the Bucks host the Warriors.

Brandon Jennings has made a habit of starting slow and finishing strong recently, but Milwaukee Bucks interim coach Jim Boylan would like to see him be more aggressive throughout an entire contest.
The guard hasn't done much at any point in games against the Detroit Pistons this season.
