Recap

Brandon Jennings and Earl Boykins each scored 18 points and the offensively challenged Milwaukee Bucks erupted for a 110-90 home victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday.

The Bucks entered as the worst offensive team in the NBA, averaging just 91.3 points per game. But they exploded for 39 points in the second quarter - including 13 from Boykins off the bench - and outscored the Cavs 14-4 to start the third period to take command of the game.

Milwaukee scored 110 points for the first time in regulation since Jan. 8 vs. New Jersey.

Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 13 points and rookie Larry Sanders added 12 - both off the bench - for the Bucks, who shot 55 percent (43 of 78) from the field and enjoyed a 67-38 advantage in bench points.

Center Andrew Bogut, playing his second game since missing three games with a strained muscle in his side, grabbed 10 rebounds for Milwaukee.

Rookie Samardo Samuels scored 15 points and Daniel Gibson added 13 for the Cavaliers, who have dropped three straight and five of six. Guard Baron Davis did not make the trip, instead returning to Los Angeles following the death of his grandmother.
