Nets Vs. Bucks Final Score: Milwaukee Tips New Jersey, 106-95

The shorthanded New Jersey Nets fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 106-95 on Saturday night, dropping the team to 22-42 overall and 13-19 on the road this season.

Five Nets players put up double figure scoring efforts, led by 18 points from Gerald Wallace, but that was not enough to overcome the desperate Bucks, who cling to hope in the Eastern Conference for the final playoff spot.

New Jersey, who was playing without guard Deron Williams for the third straight game, had no defense for Bucks point guard Brandon Jennings, who finished with 30 points on 9-18 shooting.

The Bucks are now three games behind Philadelphia for eighth place in the East, and will need to win out while having the 76ers losing all of their remaining games for a spot in the postseason.

The Nets next take the court on Monday night, when they host Philadelphia at the Prudential Center.
