Bucks fight off Celtics for fourth straight victory

MILWAUKEE (NBA.com exclusive) -- The brew just keeps getting better in Milwaukee.

Andrew Bogut continued his run to elite status among Eastern Conference centers with 25 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks, and Carlos Delfino added 19 points and eight rebounds in 41 minutes despite the flu, as the Bucks gritted out an 86-84 victory over the Celtics on Tuesday at the Bradley Center.

The Bucks (34-29) won their fourth straight and 10th in 11 games as they've moved from ninth to fifth in the Eastern Conference standings.

And after this one there were no "yeah, buts" like there were after their victory Saturday over the Cleveland Cavaliers, who were without LeBron James.

The Celtics (40-22) were at full strength, but the Bucks battled on even terms and then used a 14-2 run in the fourth quarter to earn the victory.

"They brought it tonight," Bucks coach Scott Skiles said of the Celtics. "They came out to play."

So did the Bucks.

Milwaukee's biggest lead was just eight in the first quarter, while the Celtics' largest edge was seven. It was that kind of game.

"They're a really good team," said Bucks guard John Salmons, who had 16 points, including five in the deciding 14-2 run in the fourth quarter. "This was one of those games where we wanted to measure ourselves, and we did a good job."

The Bucks' 10-1 run coincides with the acquisition of Salmons from the Chicago Bulls. Not that Salmons has been anything like a one-man show.

Along with the big contributions from Bogut and Delfino, the Bucks got 13 points from rookie point guard Brandon Jennings, including a short floater in the lane that capped the 14-2 run and made it 86-79 with 2:42 left.

Prior to that basket, Ersan Ilyasova (nine points) converted a huge three-point play in the lane.

Jennings' basket would be the Bucks' final points, but a gritty defensive effort helped secure the victory.

The Celtics got within the final margin on a 3-point play by Rajon Rondo (20 points) with 2:30 left and an 18-footer by Kevin Garnett (14 points, 10 rebounds) with 53.2 seconds left.

But the Bucks were able to run nearly two full shot clocks after Bogut tipped a Salmons miss out to Jennings. The rookie missed a 3-pointer with about 10 seconds left and the Celtics called time out with 8.6 left to set up a potentially tying or winning possession.

Milwaukee had a foul to give, and Ilyasova took it on Paul Pierce with 3.9 seconds left. Pierce got the ensuing inbound pass and tried to drive around a pick to the right side, but Bogut stepped out and stopped him. Pierce's only option was to launch a 20-footer that rolled off at the buzzer.

"We got Paul Pierce in a great spot," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. "It came down to a make-or-miss situation, which is never good.

"I didn't think we played great. I just thought they made big plays down the stretch and we didn't."

A key part of the Milwaukee effort was holding Ray Allen to just three points, all from the free-throw line. Pierce finished with 12 but didn't get on the board until a three-point play with 4:26 left in the second quarter.

"We were really sharp on the defensive end," Skiles said. "It was not an easy game for us. It was back and forth; it was a physical game. We were turning the ball over too much and had trouble finding any footing offensively even though we were shooting a good percentage.

"We needed our defense to keep us in the game, and it did."

And, of course, the Bucks also had Bogut, who earned four of his 10 baskets on offensive rebounds in the final 24 minutes.

"We still have a lot of season to go," Bogut said. "But we're starting to do the right things and we're beating teams now that no one thinks we can beat."

The Bucks were without reserve guard Jerry Stackhouse, who has a strained left hamstring. He is day to day.

Delfino was ill with the flu Monday night but answered the bell to start the game after taking two intravenous bags of fluid beforehand. He led all scorers in the first half with 11 points.

Pierce didn't score until a three-point play with 4:26 left in the half that started a 9-0 run that gave the Celtics a 43-37 lead.

Boston led, 46-42, at the half and maintained that edge at 68-64 after three. But the Bucks held them to just 36.8 percent shooting (7-for-19) in the final 12 minutes and won for just the second time (2-24) in games where they trailed after three quarters.

"Everybody's confidence is real high right now," Jennings said. "A lot of people doubted us at the beginning of the season and had us almost picked last. We're here, too, you know.

"We're fighting for a spot in the playoffs, too, so don't forget about us."
