Jennings hits 30 but Pistons lose

MILWAUKEE — Caron Butler scored 30 points and the Milwaukee Bucks rallied from a 13-point deficit in the third quarter for a 104-101 victory over the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night that snapped a nine-game losing streak.

Brandon Knight added 16 points against the team that traded him in the offseason, while backup center Miroslav Raduljica added eight points and eight rebounds off the bench.

The Bucks trailed 76-63 in the third quarter, largely due to Brandon Jennings, who finished with 30 points.

But Butler provided a boost with his jumper in the fourth before the Bucks held on late.

Josh Smith missed two foul shots with about 5 seconds left, and Rodney Stuckey missed a desperation 3 at the buzzer to tie.

Knight, who was traded for Jennings, also had nine assists and six rebounds, while Ersan Ilyasova added 12 points.

Greg Monroe added 18 points for Detroit and Stuckey finished 23.

The Pistons had one last chance after a contested possession was ruled in favor of Detroit. The ball went to Stuckey in the corner, but his 3-point attempt harmlessly sailed into the side of the glass.
