Bucks 121, Cavaliers 84: Video, Stats, Recaps, Reaction

To put it simply, the Bucks did a lot right in Cleveland an not a whole lot wrong. The 35 points that Milwaukee let out in the first quarter was only a preview of things to come as the Bucks jumped to a whopping 71-44 halftime lead behind the strength of Brandon Jennings (28 points, 11/17) , Ersan Ilyasova, (20 points, 9/11 FG) and Mike Dunleavy (16 points, 5/7 FG). The Bucks never quite doubled that score in the 2nd half, but nevertheless would continue putting the beatdown. A collapse was unlikely, but it's still good to be mentally prepared. The Cavs, meanwhile, still had a good game to show from rookie Kyrie Irving (29 points, 11/20 FG) but he suffered a sprained right shoulder in the process. However, the Cavs are likely looking towards the draft for now, while the Bucks are still searching for the 8th spot in the East.
