MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Andrew Bogut and Michael Redd each scored 20 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Memphis Grizzlies 112-96 on Wednesday night for their sixth straight win. Milwaukee is on its longest winning streak in four years. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have lost five in a row and 14 of 16. Ruben Patterson added 19 points for the Bucks, while Mo Williams finished with 18 points and six assists. Charlie Bell had 11 points. Bogut hit 10 of 13 shots from the field and Patterson was 8-of-12 as the Bucks shot 49 percent, including 9-of-16 from 3-point range. Pau Gasol, continuing his return from foot surgery, had a season-high 29 points and seven rebounds for Memphis.
Mike Miller scored 18, and Dahntay Jones had 13. Hakim Warrick added 11. At times, the Memphis front-line defense was so bad that Grizzlies players were looking at each other after inside baskets by the Bucks, who outscored Memphis 60-50 in the paint.
