Bogut's 24 points, 22 boards lift Bucks


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Andrew Bogut had 24 points, 22 rebounds and blocked five shots to lead the Milwaukee Bucks over the Houston Rockets, 97-91 on Friday night to finish their homestand 3-1.

It was Bogut's fourth 20-20 performance of his career and his best rebounding effort since dislocating his right elbow, breaking his hand and wrist in an eye-averting fall last April.

Bogut, the No. 1 overall pick in 2005, had missed five games this season with back spasms, but in his last four games is averaging 20.8 points and 16 rebounds, with the Bucks' only loss coming to Miami.

Houston went nearly 7 minutes without a field goal and couldn't rally in the final minute despite 23 points from Kevin Martin.
