Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Brandon Jennings buried the go-ahead 3- pointer late in the fourth quarter and the Bucks overcame a rough start to defeat the Celtics, 91-88, on Saturday.
Jennings finished with 13 points and six rebounds. Fresh off his first career triple-double, Larry Sanders scored a team-high 18 points, pulled down 16 boards and blocked five shots in the win for the Bucks, who won consecutive games against Boston for the first time since the 2006-07 season.
Monta Ellis shot just 6-of-20, but tallied 17 points, seven assists and two steals in the victory. Ersan Ilyasova added 15 points and five rebounds off the bench.
Without suspended point guard Rajon Rondo, Jason Terry filled his role with 15 points and 11 assists, but Terry and Paul Pierce both missed from downtown with a chance to tie the game on Boston's final possession. Pierce scored a game-high 19 points and also had six assists in the loss.
