Kings vs. Bucks score: Monta Ellis too much for Sacramento as Bucks win, 98-85

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Kings' former division rival proved to be too much as Sacramento lost their second consecutive game on Wednesday night.

DeMarcus Cousins' one-game suspension appeared to cost the Sacramento Kings as they fell to the Milwaukee Bucks, 98-85, at BMO Harris Bradley Center on Wednesday night.

Tyreke Evans led the Kings off the bench with 17 points, seven rebounds and two assists. John Salmons added 16 points and three rebounds. Jason Thompson struggled offensively, but grabbed 15 rebounds to lead the Kings in that category.

The backcourt tandem of Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings proved to be too much to overcome as Jennings led all scorers with 19 points on 8-of-21 shooting from the field while adding four rebounds, three assists and one steal. Monta Ellis had a more well-rounded effort for the Bucks, scoring 17 points, adding 11 assists and eight rebounds.

Sacramento missed the inside presence of Cousins and was outrebounded by a margin of 60-50. The Kings never led in the contest. With the loss, they fell to 7-14 on the season, while Milwaukee improved to 11-9.
