Bucks stop in crunch time versus Magic

MILWAUKEE -- It's getting old - Monday night's Milwaukee Bucks loss to Orlando, their third to the Magic in ten days, was all too similar to the first two.  Coach Scott Skiles' squad took a lead into the fourth quarter again, only to see it vanish.

Ryan Anderson, the NBA leader in three point shots, hit a triple from the top of the key with 18.1 seconds left following a tipped rebound.  That put the Magic ahead, 91-90.  After a Brandon Jennings turnover and two free throws by Orlando made it 93-90, the Bucks couldn't get off a good shot - something that's been a thorn in their side this season with the game on the line.

The Bucks loss was their sixth in a row at the Bradley Center - their longest since a seven game slide in February of two thousand.  Jennings scored a team-high 22 points. Dwight Howard led the Magic with 28 points and 16 rebounds.

13-19 Milwaukee plays in Chicago on Wednesday night before the All-Star break.
