Mike Dunleavy Jr.
MILWAUKEE -- Though they've played well in his absence, but the Milwaukee Bucks missed Mike Dunleavy Jr. Out seven of the last eight games with a bone bruise in his left knee, Dunleavy returned with a splash Tuesday night, scoring 17 points off the bench in Milwaukee's 98-93 victory over the Indiana Pacers at the BMO Harris Bradley Center -- their fifth victory in the last six games. His points, though, were just the tip of the iceberg. The veteran swingman was a factor at both ends of the court, pulling down six rebounds and blocking two shots in 27 minutes. "It's like he wasn't even out," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said. "He made a couple of shots but he always has the ability to do it and it really draws a lot of attention. Mike's not known for being a great athlete but he's really long and has a great basketball set." Dunleavy's effort was the perfect complement to Brandon Jennings, who set a season-high with 34 points while...

Gary Woelfel, the Bucks beat writer for the Racine Journal-Times, called into the local WSSP radio show in Milwaukee Saturday where he noted he has it on “very good authority” that the Nets are still trying to pursue Bucks forward, Ersan Ilyasova. The Nets were one of several teams interested in the Turkish forward over the summer but he were unsuccessful as he signed a 5-year...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Milwaukee Bucks forward Mike Dunleavy was back at practice Monday and expects to play Tuesday against Indiana.
"I had a good day at practice, it feels pretty good," Dunleavy said. "Hopefully I'll be able to play tomorrow night. Unless something acts up tomorrow after a full day of practice, I'm hopeful to play."

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Mike Dunleavy missed the previous seven games because of a bruised left knee. The way he played Tuesday night, it was hard to tell.
Dunleavy scored 17 points off the bench, including grabbing a key rebound and scoring on a putback after missing a 3-pointer with 1:35 left, to help the Milwaukee Bucks hold off the Indiana Pacers 98-93.
"It was nice to have...
Joel Przybilla of the Milwaukee Bucks has been suspended for one game by the NBA for “throwing the basketball and hitting a referee”.
Late in the 4th quarter of the Clippers win over the Bucks on Saturday, Przybilla threw the ball at a referee who called a foul on teammate Drew Gooden.
A separate referee quickly hit Przybilla with a technical foul and the league announced on...
MILWAUKEE -- If there was any rust in Mike Dunleavy's game, it certainly didn't show.
After missing the last six games and seven of eight with a bone bruise in his left knee, Dunleavy looked like he hadn't missed a beat. While he may have picked up right where he left off, the Bucks needed him back and his impact in Tuesday's 98-93 victory over Indiana was evident...
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks and Indiana Pacers have a history of bad blood. Naturally, Pacers coach Frank Vogel was asked if he expected any carryover from previous incidents into Tuesday's game.
His answer was telling. Vogel said his team doesn't go into games thinking about it, but another hard foul might "refresh" the Pacers' memory.
When two teams see...
Perhaps the biggest concern facing the Indiana Pacers during their longest winning stretch of the season is the health of one of their top players.

Milwaukee is simply one of those teams the Pacers don't match up well against, primarily because of the quickness of their guards, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis.
As expected, the dynamic backcourt duo gave the Pacers all sorts of problems and combined for 55 points, with Jennings' 34 leading the way in their 98-93 win, their second of the season against Indiana.
MILWAUKEE -- Brandon Jennings scored seven of his season-high 34 points during a one-minute stretch in the fourth quarter as the Bucks beat Indiana, 98-93, Tuesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Tied at 85-85 with 4:31 left, Jennings made a 16-footer from the corner to put Milwaukee up, 87-85. After Larry Sanders blocked David West, George Hill fouled Jennings on a missed...
MEMPHIS -- The Memphis Grizzlies haven't exactly been scintillating on offense lately. But they sure know how to play defense. The Grizzlies have held their past two opponents to fewer than 20 points in five of eight quarters, and they did enough Wednesday night to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 90-80 at FedExForum. Despite Memphis shooting just 40.9 percent from the field, including...
