Bogut leads Bucks past Pacers on the road 84-81


INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Andrew Bogut scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 18 rebounds, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to an 84-81 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

Rookie guard Brandon Jennings had 16 points and six assists, and Michael Redd scored 14 for the Bucks, who snapped a three-game skid and won their first road game since Nov. 21.

Roy Hibbert had 16 points and Troy Murphy added 14 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacers, losers of three straight and four of five.

With the Bucks leading 82-79 late in the fourth quarter, Jennings hit a fadeaway jumper over T.J. Ford with the shot clock winding down. Tyler Hansbrough's dunk cut the deficit to three again, and Redd missed two free throws before Ford's potential tying 3-pointer bounced out with 5 seconds left.
