Recap

Marcin Gortat had 19 points and 11 rebounds and Channing Frye added 14 and 13 as the Phoenix Suns continued their home mastery of the Milwaukee Bucks with a 92-77 victory on Wednesday.

The Suns (23-24) have defeated the Bucks 23 consecutive times in Phoenix, the second-longest current streak behind San Antonio’s 25 straight home victories over Golden State.

Grant Hill scored 16 points and Jared Dudley added 15 for Phoenix, which won its third straight game. Steve Nash had 13 assists but committed nine turnovers.

Corey Maggette and Ersan Ilyasova scored 15 points apiece for Milwaukee (19-28), which has not won in Phoenix since the 1986-87 season. Ilyasova is one of four Bucks who had not been born the last time the team won here.

Earl Boykins added 14 points for shorthanded Milwaukee, which shot just 31 percent from the field. Bucks guard Brandon Jennings started for the first time since returning from a broken foot three games ago and had six points on 2-of-10 shooting with five assists in his alloted 24 minutes.

The Bucks were without center Andrew Bogut, who was a late scratch with a knee injury; guard John Salmons, who sat out his ninth straight game with a hip ailment; and forward Drew Gooden, who will miss at least four weeks with a recurring foot injury.
