Bucks hold off Knicks, 100-95

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Carlos Delfino scored a career-high 30 points and Brandon Jennings finished an assist short of a triple-double to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 100-95 victory over the struggling New York Knicks on Sunday.

Jennings had 14 points and 11 rebounds to go with nine assists and Milwaukee built a 23-point first quarter lead only to watch it evaporate in a half-court struggle.

Milwaukee is tied with Charlotte for ninth place in the Eastern Conference, a game and a half behind Indiana for the final spot in the playoffs.

New York is stumbling toward mediocrity after losing five of the last six. The Knicks are 7-8 since trading for Carmelo Anthony, who had 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting.
