(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Andrew Bogut scored a career-high 31 points and grabbed 18 rebounds to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Indiana Pacers 84-81 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

The Pacers used a big second quarter to take a seven-point lead to the locker room at halftime, but Milwaukee came out smoking in the third quarter.

After Indiana's Roy Hibbert scored the first basket of the second half, the bucks went on a 13-0 run to take the lead.

Milwaukee had a chance to close out the game in the final seconds, but the bucks missed six-straight free throw attempts in the final 1:03, leaving the door open for the Pacers.

TJ Ford missed a pair of three-point attempts in the final six seconds as the Bucks held on for the victory.

Rookie Brandon Jennings added 16 points for the Bucks with eight of those coming in the fourth quarter as Milwaukee snapped a three-game losing streak.

Hibbert led Indiana with 16 points with Troy Murphy adding 14 points and twelve boards as the Pacers have lost three in a row to fall to 9-17 on the season.

The Pacers are in Boston tonight to face the Celtics.

The Celtics have the best record in the Eastern Conference at 21-5, but one of those losses came to the Pacers in November at the Fieldhouse.
