Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Larry Sanders led five Milwaukee starters in
double-figures with 21 points and 13 rebounds, as the Bucks picked up a much-
needed 113-103 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday at BMO Harris
Ersan Ilyasova and Brandon Jennings each netted 20 points for the Bucks, who
saw a four-game losing skid come to an end. Monta Ellis filled out the stat
sheet with 18 points, nine assists and seven boards and Marquis Daniels
followed with 16 points in the victory.
Kobe Bryant scored 30 points and is now four shy of tying Wilt Chamberlain for
4th-most on the NBA career points list. The Lakers, though, have lost four of
their last five games.
Steve Nash registered 16 points and with six helpers, while Dwight
Howard had a double-double of 15 points and 15 rebounds in the setback.
