Jennings, Jackson help Bucks slide past Pistons

Jan 13, 2012 - 7:45 AM Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Brandon Jennings scored 27 points and Stephen Jackson had 25, as the Bucks downed the Pistons, 102-93, on Thursday.

Jon Leuer added 15 points, while Ersan Ilyasova had 14 for the Bucks, who have won two straight following a five-game skid. Head coach Scott Skiles picked up career win No. 400.

"A lot of these games are won by the team that has the most energy and we were able to at least build a lead and hold them off," said Skiles.

Greg Monroe finished with game-highs of 32 points and 16 boards in the Pistons' sixth straight loss. Brandon Knight chipped in 20 points and Tayshaun Prince had 13.

"Greg was tremendous," said Pistons coach Lawrence Frank. "You can't say enough good things about his performance. You ride him, you ride him, and ride him. I thought he had a great pace."

Milwaukee took a 79-68 lead into the fourth quarter and maintained an 11-point edge with under five minutes to play. Detroit, though, made a late charge, reeling off an 8-0 run, capped by Prince's jumper, to make it 94-91 with 1:23 to play.

Jennings responded, hitting a lefty floater on the other end and Jackson spotted Leuer underneath for a slam with 25.9 second left to end the threat, as the Bucks improved to 4-0 at the Bradley Center this season.
