Bucks fight through fatigue, snap Nuggets' home win streak


By Michael Kelly, for NBA.com

DENVER (NBA.com exclusive) -- The Bucks were supposed to be dragging Saturday night, conceding victory after expending all their energy 24 hours earlier.

Even before the game Milwaukee coach Scott Skiles admitted he didn't know how much gas his team had left for Denver after winning a double-overtime game in Sacramento on Friday. Four starters played more than 44 minutes against the Kings, and the plane didn't land in Denver until 3 a.m.

But it turns out the more-rested Nuggets were the team on empty.

The Bucks overcame Andrew Bogut's foul-plagued night and their fatigue to pull out a 102-97 win Saturday night, delivering Denver an unexpected -- and maybe damaging -- loss.

Milwaukee wasn't surprised by the win. In fact, the players were disappointed they didn't finish this Western Conference swing 3-0.

"The Clippers played great but we felt like we let one get away," John Salmons said of Wednesday's loss in Los Angeles. "We get two, so we're happy with that."

The Nuggets aren't. With a five-game road trip on tap, this was supposed to be a confidence-building win as they battle for a top seed in the conference. Instead they couldn't overcome poor shooting and the combination of Salmons and Carlos Delfino, who scored 26 and 21, respectively.

"They seemed like they were making a lot of shots," Denver guard Arron Afflalo said. "Delfino was making 3s and Salmons was making plays early. They also came up with a lot of hustle plays down the stretch. They deserved it."

Salmons followed up his 53-minute, 27-point performance Friday with another strong game. He scored nine points in the fourth quarter and was 9-for-9 from the line overall, including two free throws with 1:46 left that gave Milwaukee a 97-94 lead.

He also played strong defense down the stretch to keep the Nuggets from rallying from a six-point deficit midway through the fourth.

"They were awesome," Denver guard Chauncey Billups said of Salmons and Delfino. "Salmons did what he usually does as a scorer and a playmaker."

As well as Milwaukee played, there was the sense that Denver, having won seven straight at home and eight of its last nine overall, would pull it out. The Nuggets were playing their seventh game without head coach George Karl as he battles neck and throat cancer, but they were 5-1 with Adrian Dantley filling in and their stars were aggressive offensively all night.

Billups and Anthony were taking the ball to the basket, drawing fouls and getting to the line. Both had 29 points and combined were 26-for-29 from the charity stripe.

"If you said before the game Carmelo and Chauncey are going to shoot 29 free throws and we're going to give up 20 offensive rebounds you're probably going to get beat handily," Skiles said.

It looked like that would be enough to overcome the Bucks. Down 93-88, Billups hit two free throws and Anthony had a steal and a dunk to cut the lead to one with 2:20 left.

But after Anthony hit a free throw to make it 97-95, a defensive lapse gave Ersan Ilyasova a wide-open layup, Anthony missed a short jumper and Kurt Thomas hit two free throws to seal the win.

In the end the Bucks never succumbed to tired legs and the Nuggets couldn't hit big shots. Anthony was 10-for-29 and Billups 5-for-17 despite hitting all 17 of his foul shots.

"I missed some easy shots -- everyone did," Billups said. "We just missed some shots."

They also missed an opportunity to gain a game on the Mavericks, who lost at home to Boston on Saturday.

For the Bucks, the win helped solidify their fifth-place standing in the Eastern Conference playoff race. With a five-game homestand waiting for them, they have a chance to take a stranglehold on their postseason position.

"It's a big win because you're trying to hold the five seed and move up as high as we can," Salmons said. "We need all the wins we can get."
