Jennings, Bucks keep Nets winless

Jennings, Bucks keep Nets winless

The Nets' poor shooting made it easy for Bogut, Delfino and Jennings, in his second game since a 55-point night on Saturday.

Milwaukee started the second half with 15 straight points, including eight in the spurt by Jennings, and led by as many as 19 points in the fourth quarter. The Bucks improved to 4-1 on a six-game homestand that ends Friday.

"Our guys have done a good job with a favorable schedule. We've got one more home game, we'd like to get that, but now the pace really picks up," Skiles said.

The Bucks' only real scare came early in the fourth quarter when Jennings, the 10th pick in this year's draft, ran into a hard screen and fell awkwardly, but he returned after the timeout.

From there, Jennings, who has double figures in eight of his first nine games, continued his masterful play, whipping a pass to Delfino in the corner for a 3-pointer to make it 83-66 as Milwaukee cruised.

The Nets led by as many as 11 in the first half after Terrence Williams looked like the stud rookie to watch. He scored 16 second-quarter points, hitting seven shots in a row, and finished with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

But Jennings, picked one slot ahead of Williams, came storming back in the third quarter, pestering the Nets with his speed that led to his big steal and dunk. He knocked down a 3-pointer moments later that gave Milwaukee a 56-48 lead.

It's been more misery for the Nets, who last lost at least 12 in a row in a season when they dropped 14 straight in 1990, according to STATS LLC research.

New Jersey's next chance for a win comes at home against the Knicks on Saturday before heading out on a four-game West Coast trip. The NBA record is 17 straight losses to start a season shared by Miami and the Los Angeles Clippers.

"I don't even focus on 0-17," Nets coach Lawrence Frank said. "Obviously, it's very disappointing to be where we're at. Right need what we need to do is have a day of practice and get ready for the game against New York."

Notes: The Nets' longest losing streak in a season is 16 from Jan. 5-Feb. 5, 1978. ... With the Nets again dressing just eight players because of injuries, Frank joked before the game that he went looking for Bango, the Bucks' mascot, to ask him if he wanted to wear a New Jersey uniform. ... Bucks F Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (left foot sprain) missed the game. He left the arena in a walking boot even though Skiles said he's expected to play Friday.
