The Milwaukee Bucks couldn’t keep pace with Indiana last night in Indianapolis as the Pacers rolled by the Bucks 102-78 in front of a sellout crowd. Six Indiana players scored in double digits and kept Milwaukee under tight control defensively to win the team’s third straight game by at least 20 points.
Monta Ellis put up 22 points for Milwaukee but collectively the Bucks shot .307 from the field to garner the team’s season-low in points and field goal percentage. Brandon Jennings was 1-for-15 shooting and was held to a season-low of 4 points.
The icing on the cake came in the third quarter when Larry Sanders objected to a foul call earning a technical foul and immediately earning a second to be ejected for continuing to complain. Mike Dunleavy was also tossed later in the game after popping a driving Gerald Green in the face.
The Bucks host Atlanta tomorrow.
