The Milwaukee Bucks mercifully hit the All Star Break after losing to the New Orleans Pelicans at the BMO Harris Bradley Center Wednesday night 102-98. It was the Bucks fourth straight loss and drops their record to an NBA worst 9-43 on the season. The Pelicans shot 52% from the floor and scored 60 points in the paint, breaking away with a 37 point, third quarter. Eric Gorden led the visitors with 21 points. Brandon Knight led the Bucks with 22. Milwaukee rallied late. A three pointer from Ersan Ilyasova with just under a minute brought the Bucks within 100-98 and after a New Orleans miss, Milwaukee committed a turnover in the backcourt with :09 to play. Ilyasova finished with 16 points. Gary Neal had 18 off the bench. After the All Star game in New Orleans this weekend, the Bucks return to open the second half with a three game homestand next week.
