Recap


Brandon Jennings had a season-high 36 points as the Milwaukee Bucks notched their first road win by cruising to a 100-86 victory over the New York Knicks.

The Bucks, now 1-8 on the road, outscored the Knicks 24-16 in the third quarter and never looked back.

Stephen Jackson missed the bus to the Bucks' shootaround earlier in the day, and as a result was suspended by head coach Scott Skiles for the game. Skiles benched the guard in the second half of Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, after Jackson scored two points in the first half.

Carmelo Anthony was strong for the Knicks in a losing cause, collecting a team-high 35 points.

Late in the fourth, Jennings fell hard to the court after running into a hard pick set by Anthony.  That led to a verbal altercation between the two players with under two minutes left in the game, and ultimately Anthony being ejected for picking up his second technical foul.

The Knicks have failed to reach 100 points in seven straight games.

Miwaukee has won 11 of its last 13 meetings with New York.
