Jennings keeps Bucks clinging to postseason hopes

Brandon Jennings scored 30 points and the Milwaukee Bucks remained in the playoff hunt with a 106-95 win over the New Jersey Nets on Saturday night.

The Bucks could have been eliminated from contention in the Eastern Conference with a loss after No. 8 seed Philadelphia beat Indiana in overtime Saturday. Instead, they remained three games behind the 76ers with three to play.

Ersan Ilyasova added 17 points and 17 rebounds and Drew Gooden scored 16 for the Bucks, who snapped a three-game losing streak with only their second win in the last seven.

One of their remaining three games is against the Sixers on Wednesday.

Gerald Wallace scored 18 points with 11 rebounds to lead New Jersey, MarShon Brooks added 17 points and Gerald Green scored 16 off the bench. The Nets have lost four in a row.
