Recap: Milwaukee vs. Indiana

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Brandon Jennings had 13 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter and the Milwaukee Bucks downed the Indiana Pacers, 98-93, on Tuesday.

Jennings was 13-of-22 from the field for Milwaukee, which has won five of its last six games. Monta Ellis added 19 points and six assists in the victory.

George Hill tallied 18 points to lead the Pacers, who had their three-game winning streak snapped.

"I think we got a little bit sloppy with the ball tonight," Pacers center Ian Mahinmi said. "We want to be a low-turnover team and tonight was kind of tough."

The Bucks led 75-66 nine seconds into the fourth quarter after Mike Dunleavy hit a 3-pointer, but the Pacers countered with a 19-10 swing to tie the contest at 85-85 with 4:51 left.

Jennings then went on a personal 7-2 spurt, and his high arching left-wing triple hit nothing but net and made it 92-87 with 3:39 remaining.

Hill's trey a bit later trimmed the margin to 94-91. Jennings' layup at the other end then preceded two Hill free throws, which made it 96-93 with 55 ticks left.

Jennings misfired on a triple on Milwaukee's ensuing trip down the floor, but so did Indiana's Paul George at the other end. Two Jennings foul shots with 13.3 seconds left then sealed the outcome.

"It was a dog fight. They're a division rival, they're a good team and we were fortunate enough to get the win," Dunleavy said.

Earlier, the Pacers led 25-21 after a quarter of play and headed into the locker room with a 48-45 halftime advantage.

Milwaukee outscored the visitors 27-18 in the third quarter and took a 72-66 edge into the final frame.
