MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew Bogut had 26 points and 13 rebounds to continue his string of dominant performances, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 115-95 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.
Fresh off his 24-point, 20-rebound performance in a rout of the Knicks on Monday night, Bogut had his fourth straight double-double in Milwaukee's fourth straight win.
The Bucks (28-28) are tied for seventh in the Eastern Conference and back at .500 for the first time since Dec. 12. It's the first time Milwaukee has been .500 or better after the All-Star break since 2005-06, when the Bucks last made the playoffs.
New Orleans' rookies led the way again. Marcus Thornton had 25 points, and Darren Collison added 22, but the Hornets (30-28) slipped three games behind eighth-place Portland in the Western Conference.
