MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Rookie Brandon Jennings scored 25 points and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 92-85 on Saturday night while LeBron James watched from the bench and limping noticeably off it.
Jennings, who said earlier this week maybe he'd stop shooting after several poor performances, hit five 3-pointers and went 6 of 14 from the field. Andrew Bogut added 15 points and nine rebounds, lifting the Bucks to their ninth win in the last 10.
Antawn Jamison had 30 points and 11 rebounds, but the Cavs lost their 10th straight dating to 2007 without James in the lineup.
Coach Mike Brown insisted his decision to sit James was for rest and had nothing to do with the previous night when the star twisted his right ankle.
