Bucks Final Score: Jennings, Ellis help Bucks shoot down Warriors, 103-93

USA TODAY Sports

Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis dominated a high-profile guard matchup, carrying the Milwaukee Bucks to victory on the road.

Brandon Jennings earned his fourth-consecutive double-double with 31 points and 10 assists, Monta Ellis had 26 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists, and the Milwaukee Bucks earned a 10-point win to sweep the 2-game season series from the Golden State Warriors. Jennings and Ellis combined to shoot 20-35 from the field, including 6-11 shooting from deep for Jennings, beating the Warriors at their own game in their own arena. Klay Thompson and Carl Landry each scored 18 points to lead Golden State, while Stephen Curry added 16 but shot just 7-18. Golden State was without starting forward David Lee due to a knee injury.

In isolation, the game would've represented a shocking twist in style and execution for these two teams. The inefficient gunners of Milwaukee racked up points with ease while dishing plenty of dimes, while the smooth scorers of Golden State struggled to find the net. But these days it's just another day at the office for the Bucks' backcourt, who have altered play styles and perceptions over the past four games. Despite facing their former defensive anchor for the first time ever, the Bucks' 108.8 offensive rating once against topped their season average. Andrew Bogut had just 4 points for the Warriors but did pull down 9 rebounds and record 4 assists. Meanwhile his heir-apparent Larry Sanders blocked 3 shots for the Bucks (hopefully kicking off another streak) and helped hold the Dubs 10 points below their average in paint scoring.

Milwaukee also got 15 crucial points from J.J. Redick, who hit a pair of back-to-back threes in the fourth quarter when the Bucks were clinging to a tenuous lead. Redick appeared to injure his ankle on the second make, but was able to walk it off and return to the game. He also had 7 assists and was 5-11 from the floor.

The Bucks continue their West Coast trip Sunday when the face the Kings. Tip-off is at 8:00 CST. The Warriors will host the Knicks on Monday night.
