                    === Jennings paces Bucks past Sixers ===
 
 Philadelphia,  PA (Sports  Network) - Brandon Jennings poured in a season-high
 33  points as  the  Milwaukee  Bucks topped  the  Philadelphia 76ers,  105-96,
 on Monday at Wells Fargo Center.
 
 Jennings  added  eight assists  and five rebounds,  while Monta Ellis finished
 with  18 points, seven  assists and five boards for the Bucks, who improved to
 3-0  on  the road  this season.  Mike Dunleavy contributed  13 points and five
 boards in the victory.
 
 "Our  pick-and-roll  game was really  working tonight," Jennings said. "Me and
 Monta  were  able to get into  our flow a  little bit quicker tonight. We were
 just taking what the defense gave us."
 
 Jrue  Holiday paced the  Sixers with 25 points and six assists, but turned the
 ball  over  eight times, while  Jason Richardson  returned to the lineup after
 missing four games with an ankle sprain and dropped 20 points.
 
 Dorell  Wright donated  14 points and Thaddeus Young added 11 points and seven
 rebounds in the setback.
 
 "We did some good things but Jennings was just fabulous tonight," Sixers coach
 Doug Collins said. "We weren't able to overcome out mistakes. We just couldn't
 finish it out."
 
 Milwaukee  got  off to an incredibly  hot start, sinking its first eight shots
 from the floor en route to a 17-10 lead with 7:14 left in the quarter.
 
 The  Sixers  answered with an 8-2  spurt to cut  the deficit to 19-18, but the
 Bucks  fired back  with the  next seven  straight, building  the lead  back to
 26-18, with 3:29 on the clock.
 
 A  jumper  by Larry Sanders gave  the Bucks a  10-point margin and they led by
 eight after one quarter.
 
 Wright  capped a  19-9 Philadelphia run with  a 3-pointer to give the Sixers a
 45-43 lead with 5:02 to play in the first half.
 
 The  game went back and forth for the next few minutes before the Bucks closed
 the half with a 14-2 run to lead 62-50.
 
 A  technical free  throw by Jennings gave  the Bucks their largest lead of the
 game,  75-59, but the Sixers fought back to tie the game at 83 with a 24-8 run
 to close the stanza.
 
 Jennings  drained a deep three early in the fourth quarter to give Milwaukee a
 92-89  lead,  and the  Bucks put the  game away  with a 9-4  push, capped by a
 back-breaking Dunleavy trey with 2:45 to play.
