Recap


BUCKS 107, CAVALIERS 98
: Monta Ellis scored 30 points, including the final 12 of the game for Milwaukee, which beat a Cleveland team playing without Kyrie Irving.

The Bucks’ 19-point lead dwindled to just six on three different occasions in the final 3 1/2 minutes, but Ellis was there to answer every time with an array of jumpers and drives to the basket.

Brandon Jennings added 19 points and Ersan Ilyasova had 18 for the Bucks, who have won seven straight over the Cavaliers and swept the season series for the first time since the 2002-03 season.

The Cavaliers announced before the game Irving would miss the next seven to 10 days at least after re-injuring his sprained right shoulder in Tuesday’s 35-point home loss to the Spurs. Coach Byron Scott admitted before Wednesday’s game he is considering shutting Irving down for the rest of the season.

Anthony Parker tied his career high with 27 points and the Cavaliers scored their most points in two weeks, but still lost for the ninth straight time and the 12th time in their last 13 games.

GAME NOTEBOOK
: Bucks center Drew Gooden missed the game with a bad back. … Scott said Irving might rejoin the Cavaliers in Toronto on Thursday, but he won’t play against the Raptors or New Jersey on this trip. … The Cavaliers became the first team in NBA history to lose consecutive home games by at least 35 points, according to Elias Sports Bureau. … In addition to his 30 points, Ellis contributed eight assists and shot 15 of 25.
