Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks began the Jim Boylan
coaching era on a positive note.
A day after the team and former coach Scott Skiles mutually agreed to part
ways, the Bucks ended a four-game skid by downing the Phoenix Suns, 108-99,
behind 29 points and nine assists from Brandon Jennings.
Jennings shot 9-for-15 -- including 5-of-7 from beyond the arc -- in leading
seven Bucks players in double-figures. Larry Sanders tallied 10 points, eight
rebounds and six blocks, while Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson each scored 12.
Henson also pulled down 11 boards in the victory.
Boylan was named the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.
The Suns continued their road struggles with their 10th straight loss away
from home. Goran Dragic led the team with 21 points and Marcin Gortat and Luis
Scola each posted double-doubles.
Gortat tallied 16 points and 14 boards and Scola finished with 12 points and
10 rebounds in the defeat.
