Final Score: Golden State 113, Milwaukee 109
Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Baron Davis collected game-highs of 25 points and 15 assists, leading the Golden State Warriors to a 113-109 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at the Bradley Center.
Mickael Pietrus added 21 points off the bench for the Warriors, who have won three straight and 10 of their last 15 games. Troy Murphy chipped in 18 points and a game-high 14 rebounds for Golden State, and Jason Richardson also scored 18.
"I think we are going to get better, we are going to get some guys some experience and they will get better as the season goes on," said Davis.
Michael Redd had 24 points to lead the Bucks, who have lost seven straight games for the first time since the 1997-98 season. Maurice Williams added 21 points and 10 assists in the loss, while Toni Kukoc and Zaza Pachulia scored 15 apiece.
The teams tied an NBA record for fewest combined turnovers in a game with 11.
Davis scored 16 points in the fourth quarter, including six during a 13-4 run that gave the Warriors a 111-100 lead with 1:44 remaining. His last two points came on a driving layup that made it 113-103 with a minute left.
Golden State then nearly gave the game away by allowing six straight points to the Bucks over a 34-second stretch.
A Williams putback with 14.8 seconds left capped the spurt and got Milwaukee within 113-109. The play followed a lapse in judgment by Warriors center Adonal Foyle, who missed an ill-advised bank shot at the other end when he could have easily pulled back to run down the shot clock or dunked the ball for two points.
But Davis made up for the error by helping Golden State dribble out the final 13 seconds of the game without letting the Bucks foul to stop the clock.
The Warriors shot 46 percent for the game. They shot just 41 percent in the first half, but led by as many as 11 points on the way to a 60-52 advantage at the break.
Milwaukee shot 47 percent and fell to 4-13 in the month of March.
The Warriors also beat Milwaukee at home last Friday, pulling out a 118-117 victory on Derek Fisher's three-pointer as time expired...Golden State has now won three straight in the series after losing the previous eight in a row.
