MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Ersan Ilyasova scored on a putback with 27.2 seconds remaining for the lead and the Milwaukee Bucks knocked off yet another NBA powerhouse, holding on to beat the Utah Jazz 95-87 on Friday.
John Salmons had 24 points and Brandon Jennings added 23 for the Bucks, who have won five straight games and 11 of their last 12 -- including home wins over Eastern Conference powerhouses Cleveland and Orlando in the past week, although the Cavaliers were resting LeBron James.
Carlos Boozer had 26 points and 14 rebounds, but was ejected after being assessed a pair of technical fouls arguing a no-call on what he thought was a foul with 13.4 seconds left. The Jazz played much of the second half without forward Andrei Kirilenko because of an injury to his left calf.
