Brandon Jennings

Brandon Jennings stretched out his arms and held his hands just over the ground as he glided toward center court, celebrating another big 3-pointer with one of Nate Robinson’s usual moves.

Yup, Jennings was listening to Robinson’s trash talk, and he had the perfect response.

The speedy point guard scored 20 of his 35 points in the third quarter, and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Chicago Bulls 104-96 on Wednesday night for their second consecutive victory under interim coach Jim Boylan.

Robinson scored 13 of his 19 points in the first period, but was unable to stop Jennings once he got going in the third.

”A little trash talking before the second half,” Jennings said. ”I guess he felt like he had it going, he was getting the best of me. I really don’t take trash talking too kindly because I don’t really do a lot of trash talking. I warned him, so, hey, it happens.”

Mike Dunleavy had 16 points and Monta Ellis finished with 14 for Milwaukee, which made 10 of 22 3-point attempts. Larry Sanders grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked seven shots…

Carlos Boozer had 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls, who have dropped their last two games against Milwaukee at United Center. The Bulls blew a 27-point lead in the third quarter as Milwaukee snapped a nine-game losing streak against Chicago with a 93-92 victory on Nov. 26…

Luol Deng scored 18 points for Chicago, which was seeking a season-best fourth consecutive victory.

Robinson got the start in place of Kirk Hinrich, who was sidelined with a right elbow injury.
