Bucks win sixth straight beating Pacers 98-94


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Jerry Stackhouse tied his season-high with 20 points and the Milwaukee Bucks survived a late rally from the short-handed Indiana Pacers for a 98-94 win on Sunday.

Andrew Bogut added 17 points and 12 rebounds, and John Salmons had 12 points for the Bucks, who won their sixth straight game and 12 of their last 13 -- including home wins over Cleveland (without LeBron James), Boston and Utah Jazz this past week.

Luke Ridnour added 13 points for Milwaukee, which came in six games over .500 for the first time this season. It's the latest they've been six over since they were 38-32 on March 28, 2002.

The Bucks swept the four-game series against the Pacers and it was their first since a six-game sweep during the 1981-82 season.
