Recap: Milwaukee vs. Orlando

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - Monta Ellis scored 25 of his game-high 39 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 115-109 win over the Orlando Magic on Sunday.

Ellis, who went 13-for-22 from the field in the game, was a perfect 5-for-5 from 3-point range in the final frame to help the Bucks erase a 13-point deficit.

"It was just one of those days where you're feeling it. The crowd got into it and my teammates had faith in me to give me the ball and I was able to knock the shots down," Ellis said.

Ersan Ilyasova added 20 points and 11 rebounds and Brandon Jennings had 15 points and 14 assists to help Milwaukee put the brakes on a three-game skid.

Arron Afflalo scored 24 points and Maurice Harkless poured in a career-high 23 points to go with nine rebounds for the Magic, who have dropped three straight and five of their last six.

Nikola Vucevic had his 37th double-double of the season with 20 points and 15 boards in the setback.

"In the fourth quarter we didn't defend like we did the first three quarters," Vucevic said.

The Bucks trailed 83-70 early in the fourth quarter, but managed to cut it to 97-91 by the midway point of the frame. After Tobias Harris finished a tip-in, Ellis drained a trey to spark a small 8-2 burst to make it a two-point game with 4:37 left.

Afflalo canned a triple to push the spread back to five, but Milwaukee used a 9-4 swing to tie the game at 108-108 with 1:29 left.

After Harkless split a pair of free throws, Larry Sanders knocked down a hook shot, and Ellis buried a triple to give the Bucks a 113-109 edge with just 13 seconds left.

Following a timeout, the Magic were unable to get the ball in and were whistled for a five second violation. J.J. Redick was immediately fouled and knocked down the subsequent free throws to make it 115-109, and Afflalo's trey with 4.9 seconds left was off target.

Orlando led 25-18 after the first quarter and took a 54-44 lead at the break. The Magic's lead grew to 13 points in the third, and Orlando held an 81-70 lead entering the final frame.
