Bucks can't win on the road early in 2011-12
Frustration is mounting for the Milwaukee Bucks, who are still searching for a road victory after eight consecutive losses.
And Tuesday night the Bucks' home-court invincibility was easily shattered by the Denver Nuggets, who raced to a 19-point halftime lead and cruised to a 105-95 victory at the Bradley Center.
The Bucks (4-9) made a late surge behind point guard Brandon Jennings but never truly threatened the Nuggets (9-5), who were boosted by Corey Brewer's season-high 22 points and 16 from Al Harrington.
Bucks coach Scott Skiles shook up his lineup in the second half, benching shooting guard Stephen Jackson for the entire half and using starting center Andrew Bogut for just 7 minutes before replacing him with backup Larry Sanders.
"If they want to blame it on somebody, I'll take the blame," said Jackson, who finished with two points on 0-of-6 shooting in 17 minutes.
