Bucks defeat Kings
Jennings, Ellis lead Milwaukee
Brandon Jennings scored 19 points, Monta Ellis had 17 points and 11 assists and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Sacramento Kings 98-85 on Wednesday night.
Ersan Ilyasova added 16 points and a season-high 14 rebounds, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute scored a season-high 17 points in his first start of the season for Milwaukee (11-9), which has its best 20-game start since 2005-06.
Tyreke Evans had 17 points in his return to Sacramento's lineup after missing three straight games -- and five of six -- with a sore left knee. John Salmons added 16 points.
The Kings were without center DeMarcus Cousins, suspended one game by the NBA earlier in the day striking Dallas' O.J. Mayo in the groin area in their road loss Monday night.
