Redd Returns, Bogut Shines, and Bucks Win In Double OT

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) Andrew Bogut poured in 27 points and grabbed nine rebounds, as the Milwaukee Bucks outlasted the Portland Trail Blazers, 108-101, in a double-overtime thriller at the Bradley Center.

Luke Ridnour added 20 points off the bench for the Bucks, who had lost five in a row to Portland prior to Saturday. Brandon Jennings tallied 18 points and 11 assists, Ersan Ilyasova had 11 points and eight rebounds and Michael Redd chipped in 11 points for Milwaukee, which has won two in a row following a four-game skid.

LaMarcus Aldridge ended with 31 points and 11 rebounds for the Blazers, who ended a four-game road trip with a 1-3 mark. Brandon Roy added 23 points, eight rebounds, and six assists, while Martell Webster chipped in 16 points for Portland, which has still won 14 of the past 21 matchups between the clubs.

After each team traded a pair of free throws to start the second overtime, Ridnour made a jumper to give Milwaukee a 99-97 edge. Aldridge missed a layup before Carlos Delfino drilled a three-pointer for a 102-97 Bucks lead.

Roy’s two foul shots had the Blazers within 104-101 with one minute to play. Jennings then made a driving layup with 42.4 seconds left for a five-point lead, and Ridnour drilled two free throws following two three-point misses for Portland to seal the game.

Bogut’s layup to start the first overtime put the Bucks ahead 89-87. However, Portland ripped off eight straight points — six from Aldridge — to take a 95-89 lead with 2:42 left.

Milwaukee didn’t back down, though, scoring the final six points of the first extra session to deadlock the game at 95. Jennings’ seven-foot jumper with 4.9 seconds remaining tied the tilt. Roy missed an 12-foot jumper at the other end to send the contest into a second OT.

The Bucks led, 69-59, heading to the fourth quarter.

Webster’s slam and four straight points by Andre Miller had the Blazers within 73-67 just over 2 1/2 minutes into the fourth.

Miller topped off a small 5-0 spurt with 1-of-2 from the foul line to cut Portland’s gap to 78-74 with 3:50 to play in regulation.

Down by seven moments later, the Blazers scored six straight points. Aldridge’s 16-foot jumper ended the spurt and got Portland within 83-82 with 1:17 remaining.

Bogut extended the Bucks’ lead to three with a hook shot with 38.5 seconds to go, but Aldridge responded with a three-point play at the other end to deadlock the game at 85 with 33.5 ticks left.

Jennings then made a floater in the lane with 19.6 seconds remaining to give Milwaukee a two-point lead; Roy then made a nice fadeaway jumper at the opposite end to tie the contest at 87 with 12.8 ticks to play.

Following a timeout, Jennings missed a 14-foot jumper. Bogut tipped the ball in the hoop off the rebound, but the refs reviewed the play and it was determined the tip came after time had expired, sending the game to overtime.

Milwaukee led, 21-16, after one quarter, but Portland came back to take a 44-39 lead at halftime.

Redd returned to the lineup after missing seven consecutive games due to a knee injury…The Bucks shot 49.5 percent from the floor, while the Blazers made 40.2 percent of their shots…Milwaukee went 10-of-17 from the foul line, while Portland went 21-of-29 from the charity stripe.
