March 5, 2008 at 11:54 PM

MILWAUKEE, March 5 (UPI) -- A season-best 32 points from Charlie Villanueva Wednesday paced Milwaukee to a 118-106 victory over Seattle.

Milwaukee played without guard Mo Williams (abdominal strain) and forward Yi Jianlian (sprained ankle) for the entire game and Michael Redd went out in the third quarter with a nose laceration.

Villanueva picked up the slack, however, and Andrew Bogut added 21 points in helping the Bucks end a three-game losing streak.

Seattle, which has lost six of seven, was led by 22 points from Kevin Durant.

The SuperSonics trailed by 15 entering the fourth quarter, but got within five with 2:49 remaining. The Bucks then ran off seven straight points to clinch the game.

Villanueva scored 10 points in a 14-0, first-period run.
