Recap


BUCKS 121, CAVALIERS 84: Brandon Jennings had 28 points and Milwaukee made eight consecutive 3-pointers during the first half to deal host Cleveland its sixth consecutive loss.

Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and 10 rebounds after missing one game with back spasms and Mike Dunleavy had 16 points off the bench.

Dunleavy’s flurry of 3-pointers triggered a 20-1 Bucks scoring run over the first 4½ minutes of the second quarter to put the game out of reach early. The Bucks scored 99 points by the end of the third and finished with 32 assists and only six turnovers.

Kyrie Irving scored 29 points and Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 11 rebounds for the Cavaliers, who lost for the eighth time in their last nine games. The six-game losing streak matches their longest this season.

It ranks as their second-worst home loss in team history, just behind the 39-point drubbing by Chicago earlier this year.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Cavaliers on Friday signed guard Lester Hudson out of the Development League. … Bucks forward Carlos Delfino (groin) did not make the trip. … Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson is away from the team receiving more opinions on how to handle the torn tendon in his left foot. … Irving’s 29 points were three shy of his career high. … Monta Ellis had 13 points and five rebounds, but shot just 6 of 16 for Milwaukee.
