                  === Bucks cruise past struggling Pacers ===
 
 Milwaukee,  WI (Sports Network) - Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis each posted
 16  points and the Milwaukee Bucks dominated the Indiana Pacers, 99-85, at BMO
 Harris Bradley Center.
 
 Samuel  Dalembert had  14 points and six rebounds while Tobias Harris added 11
 points for the Bucks, who have won three of their last four games.
 
 Tyler  Hansbrough  had 17  points and  five rebounds for  the Pacers, who have
 dropped  five of their past six games. Gerald Green scored 13 points and added
 six rebounds in the setback.
 
 "We were trying to get it under control and did some different things there at
 the  end," said  Indiana head coach Frank  Vogel. "It wasn't enough to win the
 game, but I'm happy with the fight the guys showed there at the end."
 
 Milwaukee  led  this game  from start to  finish as the  team scored the first
 seven points, capped on a pair of Dalembert free throws.
 
 The Bucks later went on a 13-1 run in the frame and took a 33-17 lead into the
 second quarter.
 
 "That's  something  that the  coach preaches,  taking it  to them early," said
 Jennings.  "That will shut  them down and it did. It feels good to beat a team
 in our division that we had so much trouble with last year."
 
 Indiana  couldn't cut into the deficit in the second quarter as Milwaukee used
 a  12-3 run to  create more space and took a 60-34 advantage into the halftime
 break.
 
 Milwaukee scored the first six points of the third quarter to take its largest
 lead  of  the  game at  66-34  and  continued  to  have a  comfortable  margin
 throughout the frame.
 
 It  was an  82-53 game heading into  the fourth and while Indiana cut into the
 lead, it didn't get within 14 points until the last shot of the game.
