MILWAUKEE -- Richard Jefferson scored 16 of his 19 points in the second half, Andrew Bogut grabbed 17 rebounds and the Milwaukee
Bucks held on after a big run to beat Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs 82-78 on Wednesday night.
The Bucks, without Michael Redd for the fifth straight game
because of a sprained right ankle, used a 21-2 run straddling the
third and fourth quarters to take control in a game that featured
two struggling offenses without some of their biggest stars.
But Duncan, who had 24 points, scored 14 of the Spurs' 19 points
in the fourth quarter in a rally that fell just short when he
missed a 5-footer that would've tied it with 5 seconds to play.
