(MILWAUKEE, WI) - The Indiana Pacers lost their eighth-straight road game as they fell to the Bucks in Milwaukee 98-94.

Jerry Stackhouse tied a season high with 20 points off the bench with Andrew Bogut adding 17 points and twelve rebounds as the Bucks won their sixth game in a row.

Milwaukee led by 16 points in the fourth quarter before the Pacers went on a 26-8 run to cut the lead to two at 96-94 with 17 seconds remaining.

Danny Granger missed a short jumper in the final seconds that would have tied the game and John Salmons hit a pair of free throws to seal the win for the Bucks.

Granger scored a game-high 29 points for Indiana with Earl Watson scoring 15 points and Troy Murphy finishing with a double-double of 14 points and 13 rebounds for the 21-45 Pacers.

Indiana played shorthanded as TJ Ford and Mike Dunleavy missed the game due to injury.

Ford is expected to miss a week to ten days with a groin injury.

Dunleavy is day-to-day with a contusion to his right eye.

The Blue and Gold play three of their next four games at home beginning with a Tuesday night matchup against the Charlotte Bobcats.
