Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-20

Milwaukee Bucks Getting Inside 2009-11-20Luke Ridnour isn't a starter, but he's starting to get starter-like minutes.

Ridnour, a sixth-year pro who lost his battle for the Bucks' starting point guard position to rookie Brandon Jennings, is averaging 33 minutes over his last three games. Ridnour played 36 minutes against the Warriors, 34 minutes against the Mavs and 28 minutes against the Nets on Tuesday night.

In those games, Ridnour was productive. Against the Warriors and Mavs, he combined for 30 points and did an excellent job of distributing the ball, recording 10 assists and just one turnover. Against the Nets, Ridnour connected on 7 of 11 field goals en route to a 17-point outing.

"Luke has played great," said Bucks coach Scott Skiles, who has been using Ridnour and Jennings in the backcourt together more regularly. "Since Labor Day on, he's been one of our best players. He gives us another ballhandler, and he's a very good defender. Like I said, he's playing great."

BUCKS 99, NETS 85: After allowing the Nets to shoot 53 percent from the field in the first half, when they trailed 48-41, the Bucks ramped up their defense in the second half to win Wednesday night at the Bradley Center. The Bucks limited the Nets to a lowly 17 percent shooting in the third quarter and outscored them in the period 28-12 to take a 69-60 advantage. Brandon Jennings and Luke Ridnour scored eight and seven points, respectively, in the period. Andrew Bogut finished with a double-double: 21 points and 11 rebounds. Teammate Carlos Delfino also contributed 21 points.
