MILWAUKEE It's not hard to find the strengths of the Milwaukee Bucks and the Utah Jazz.
Utah is a big, physical frontcourt-based team that's goal is to beat up opponents inside, while the Bucks are now built around a three-guard rotation.
Monday's game was going to be decided by the team that limited its opponent's strength just enough to win.
Outscoring Utah's starting backcourt 54-0, Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis led Milwaukee to a 109-108 overtime victory in yet another wildly exciting game at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.
Ellis -- named the NBA's Eastern Conference Player of the Week earlier in the day -- finished with 34 points and four steals, while Jennings scored 20 points with 17 assists.
It's the first time the Bucks have played consecutive overtime games and won both since 1991.
"That was a helluva backcourt duo putting on quite a show," Bucks coach Jim Boylan said. "There was a point I was saying 'this must be a g...

Numbers aside, Jennings was looking to distribute in Milwaukee's 122...

Monta Ellis has shined in the clutch in each of the Milwaukee Bucks' three consecutive victories, but he's also crediting the recently acquired J.J. Redick for playing a part in the team's success.
Ellis and Redick will try to help the Bucks match their longest win streak of the season Monday night when they face the potentially short-handed Utah Jazz.
