Recap

Andrew Bogut had 17 points, 18 rebounds and tied a career high with seven blocks as the Milwaukee Bucks welcomed back star guard Brandon Jennings with their seventh straight win over the New Jersey Nets, 91-81, on Saturday.

Carlos Delfino delivered 21 points and four 3-pointers and Keyon Dooling added 14 points and nine assists for the Bucks, who won their third straight and handed the Nets their 11th straight road loss.

Jennings, Milwaukee's leading scorer at 17.9 points per game, had not played since Dec. 18 because of a broken foot. He finished with two points and one assist in 10 minutes.

The Nets were in the game after scoring the last seven points of the third quarter to pull within seven, but the Bucks opened the fourth on a 9-2 run. Delfino had a jumper and a 3-pointer during the spurt that provided a 77-63 lead just three minutes in.

A few minutes later, Dooling drained a couple of jumpers and Bogut got free for a layup to push the edge to 18 with six minutes left. The Nets never threatened thereafter.

Brook Lopez scored 26 points and Devin Harris set a career high with 16 assists but left for good early in the fourth quarter with an apparent ankle injury .

Milwaukee forged a 45-37 halftime lead on the strength of 11 points, nine rebounds and three blocks from Bogut and a 9-3 edge on the offensive glass. Lopez had 10 points and Harris eight points and nine assists for the Nets.
