MILWAUKEE, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- A 25-point performance from Brandon Jennings Wednesday launched Milwaukee to a strong first half and a 108-93 triumph over Brooklyn.

The Bucks defeated the Nets for the 13th consecutive time, a streak that has reached almost four full seasons.

Milwaukee rolled to a 13-point halftime lead and the closest the Nets could come in the second half was three points. Back-to-back 3-pointers by Monta Ellis and Mike Dunleavy near the midway point of the fourth period ended Brooklyn's comeback bid and the Bucks pulled away from there.

Ellis scored 20 points and Dunleavy added 17. Milwaukee went 10-of-17 from 3-point range and 18-of-19 from the foul line.

Brook Lopez delivered 21 points and 10 rebounds for the Nets, who have lost back-to-back games and dropped five out of six to fall back to the .500 mark.
