The Milwaukee Bucks ran their winning streak to four games and improved to 5-0 at the Bradley Center with a 110-103 victory over the visiting Los Angeles Lakerson Wednesday.

The Bucks were also honoring a legend in Kareem Abdul Jabbar, whose career began in Milwaukee and ended in Los Angeles. Kareem and Oscar Robertson lead Milwaukee to its only NBA title back in 1971.

Tonight's game began much like Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Milwaukee got behind by 11 early, then steadied themselves and dug in defensively, closing the gap to 47-46 at halftime.

The third quarter started with Bucks super rookie and the number 6 pick in this year's 2007 NBA Draft, Yi Jianlian, scoring three quick baskets starting the third quarter with a couple of long jumpers in addition to an inside bucket.

With his Chinese parents in the stands watching their first NBA game, the rookie, who has been in a mini slump shooting just 23% his last three games, tonight hit 4/6 from the field and 4/4 from the FT line for a total of 12 points and 6 rebounds in 22 minutes of play.

Teammate and fellow power forward Charlie Villanueva had another strong showing off the bench hitting for 14 points and 9 rebounds in 28 minutes.

Michael Redd lead Milwaukee with 26 points, 8 rebounds and 7 assist while power forward Mo Williams had his fourth good game in a row chipping in 18 points and 9 assists.

Center Andrew Bogut had 15 points and Bobby Simmons had 11 points off the bench as the Bucks had 6 players in double figures. Kobe Bryant had a game high 27 points for the Lakers.

The Bucks next play All Star Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks at home this Saturday.
