Bucks 104, Bulls 96: Brandon Jennings scored 20 of his season-high 35 points during a spectacular third-quarter surge as visiting Milwaukee improved to 2-0 under interim coach Jim Boylan.

Mike Dunleavy secured the victory with 10 of his 16 points during the fourth quarter and Larry Sanders had seven blocks and 12 rebounds for the Bucks.

Carlos Boozer collected his sixth straight double-double by finishing with 22 points and 11 rebounds and Nate Robinson scored 13 of his 19 points in the first quarter for the Bulls, who were foiled in their bid for a season-high four-game winning streak.

Jennings found his stroke from long range to help Milwaukee overcome a 57-50 halftime deficit. He drilled four 3-pointers and a 19-foot jumper in just over a three-minute span to give the Bucks a 72-64 advantage.

Robinson brought Chicago within one at 92-91 with 4:24 remaining in the fourth quarter, but Dunleavy answered with consecutive 3-pointers to keep the Bulls at bay.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Bucks G Monta Ellis tweaked his ankle in the waning moments of the contest. He was replaced by Luc Richard Mbah a Moute and did not return. ... Boylan also replaced Scott Skiles in the Windy City after the Bulls parted ways with the latter on Christmas Eve 2007. ... Sanders has recorded at least four blocks in his last five games. The streak is the longest by a Milwaukee player since Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar accomplished the feat in eight straight games during the 1973-74 season.
