Jennings, Ellis lead Bucks past Cavaliers 97-80
MILWAUKEE 97, CLEVELAND 80
CANTON, Ohio (AP) -- Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis scored 15
points apiece to lead Milwaukee to a 97-80 win over the
Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night in the Bucks' preseason
Milwaukee placed six players in double figures. The Bucks pulled
ahead in the second quarter and led by double figures for most
of the second half.
C.J. Miles paced Cleveland with 18 points. Kyrie Irving added 16
for the Cavaliers, who defeated Italy's Montepaschi Siena in
their opener Monday.
Mike Dunleavy scored 12 points while Tobias Harris, Milwaukee's
first-round draft pick in 2011, added 11.
Bucks guard Beno Udrih left the game in the first quarter after
he banged the back of his head on the knee of teammate Larry
Sanders. Udrih was face down on the floor for a few moments
while being looked at by Milwaukee's trainer. He walked to the
locker room on his own, but didn't return after playing only 45
"I'm not sure what I hit on Larry's leg," Udrih said. "I just
got a bump on the back of my head."
Udrih was taken to a local hospital, where the results of a CT
scan for a concussion were negative. He returned to the arena
and flew back to Milwaukee with his teammates.
Guard Dion Waiters, taken by the Cavaliers with the No. 4 pick
in the draft, scored two points in 14 minutes and was benched by
coach Byron Scott early in the fourth quarter. Waiters drew
Scott's ire for taking a 23-foot jump shot and was immediately
pulled from the game.
"I drew up a play and he messed it up," Scott said. "To me that
was a lack of focus and I figured he didn't need to play the
rest of the game."
