NBA Game Summary - Milwaukee at Orlando
Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Brandon Knight tallied 16 points, nine assists, five rebounds and four steals and the Milwaukee Bucks ended a 10- year winless drought in Orlando with a 115-100 victory over the Magic.
Jerryd Bayless led seven Bucks in double figures with 19 points. Khris Middleton and Jared Dudley added 17 apiece and John Henson posted 12 points and 11 rebounds in Milwaukee's first win in Orlando since Dec. 29, 2004, a stretch that included 17 straight losses.
"It was a great game," said Bucks coach Jason Kidd. "From start to finish, our guys executed the game plan. They shared the ball."
The win is fitting considering the Bucks had won six of seven road games against Eastern Conference opponents coming in, and the Magic were mired in a six-game losing skid.
Nikola Vucevic had 17 points and 14 rebounds and Victor Oladipo scored 21 points in the setback.
"We don't want to keep losing," said Vucevic. "We just have to find a way to get out of it. Nobody can help us but ourselves."
Orlando also fell to 0-16 this season when allowing 100-plus points at home.
Vucevic missed three point-blank looks on the first Magic possession, a sequence that summed up their seventh straight loss. Milwaukee led wire-to- wire and was never challenged, holding a double-digit advantage from the 9:02 mark of the second quarter on.
Bayless had 13 in the second, helping Milwaukee stretch its 10-point lead after one to 15 at halftime.
Dudley hit a pair of 3s during a 17-3 run late in the third quarter that put the game away.
