MILWAUKEE -- Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings each scored 16 points and Samuel Dalembert added 14 as the Bucks rolled to a 99-85 victory Wednesday over the Indiana Pacers in Milwaukee. Second-year forward Tobias Harris scored 11 on 4-of-5 shooting, while pulling down four rebounds and dishing out two assists as the Bucks improved to 5-2 for the first time since the 2009-2010 season. The Bucks shot 3 for 16 from beyond 3-point arc, which put a blemish on an otherwise impressive shooting effort. Without the 3-pointers, Milwaukee connected on 35 of 75 attempts, a 47 percent clip. Indiana had little go right Wednesday. Playing without Danny Grainger, out for at least the next three months with a bad knee, the Pacers have struggled to put points on the board. That trend continued as Indiana shot just 37.5 percent from the field and hit 5 of 20 three-point attempts.

Bucks Tuesday: Skiles aims to stockpile wins

ST. FRANCIS, WIS.- The Bucks are 4-2. So far, so good, right?Well, yes, but Milwaukee sees an opportunity for more.

Milwaukee has only been 7-2 or better through nine games twice since 1983. With the Danny Granger-less Indiana Pacers...

Bucks try to get things going on home court

The Indiana Pacers had no problem putting the ball in the basket last season against the Milwaukee Bucks, but that was with Danny Granger in the lineup. They could sure use him there now.
