MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) Bucks big man Larry Sanders comes up with a double-double, one night after a triple double. This one led to victory. Sanders scored 18 points and grabbed 16 rebounds as Milwaukee bounced back to edge Boston at home 91-88 Saturday night.
It wasn’t that simple. The Celtics had scored the first 17 points of the contest at the Bradley Center. The Celtics held a three-point, 88-85, lead with 1:44 to go, then Milwaukee scored the last six.
Sanders had blocked 10 shots Friday and he got five more Saturday. Monta Ellis scored 17 points and handed out seven assists for the winners. Paul Pierce scored 19 to lead Boston, but the Celtics had to play without point guard Rajon Rondo, who was serving the second game of his suspension for fighting in a game against the Nets last week.
The Bucks are In New Orleans Monday night.
