HOUSTON (AP) -- Michael Redd scored 18 points, Carlos Delfino added 16 points and eight rebounds and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Houston Rockets 96-92 in a preseason game on Monday night.
David Andersen scored 17 points, Kyle Lowry scored 12 and Carl Landry added 11 for Houston.
Luis Scola had eight points and 11 rebounds in just 13 minutes of action. He sprained his right ankle late in the second quarter and didn't play in the second half.
The Bucks led by as many as 19 in the third quarter, but the Rockets' reserves chipped away at the lead and Lowry's free throw with 3:28 left in the game cut the deficit to 86-85.
