MILWAUKEE, April 22 (UPI) -- Brandon Jennings pumped in 30 points Saturday, keeping the Milwaukee Bucks' playoff hopes alive with a 106-95 victory over New Jersey.

Ersan Ilyasova supplied a double-double of 17 points and 17 rebounds while Drew Gooden netted 16 points as Milwaukee avoided elimination and stayed three games behind Philadelphia in the race for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.

The triumph was only the second in seven games for the Bucks, who have three contests remaining -- including one against the 76ers Wednesday.

The Nets were led by 18 points and 11 rebounds from Gerald Wallace.

MarShon Brooks chipped in with 17 points and Gerald Green added 16 for New Jersey.
