CHICAGO, Jan. 9 (UPI) -- Brandon Jennings had a season-best 35 points Wednesday in bringing Milwaukee from behind to a surprising 104-96 victory over Chicago.

The Bulls had won three in a row and got off to a good start in this one when they finished the opening period with a 10-point lead. Jennings helped the Bucks take charge in the second half, however, and Milwaukee evened its road record at 8-8.

It was the fifth time this season Jennings had reached 30 points, with his previous scoring high being 34 in a win over Indiana on Dec. 18.

Jennings also had six rebounds and six assists while Mike Dunleavy contributed 16 points and Monta Ellis had 14. Larry Sanders had seven of Milwaukee's 15 blocks.

The Bucks have won both their games under interim coach Jim Boylan.

Carlos Boozer led Chicago with 22 points and 11 rebounds.
