The Bucks were without starting center Andrew Bogut, who sat out because of back spasms that first flared up last weekend. An MRI did not show any significant damage and Skiles believes his big man will be back by this weekend.
Williams scored 13 points and the Cavs, who were 0 for 5 from long range in the first half, made four 3s in the third quarter to cut into Milwaukee's lead, pulling to 68-65 entering the fourth.
After similarly slow starts when he was with New Jersey and New Orleans, Scott is staying patient in his first year with the Cavaliers, who are still adjusting to his system and learning to play different roles without James around to do it all.
"I know it's a process," Scott said. "I know that it takes time. I know it's going to take time for us on both ends of the floor to really understand exactly what I want done. So I don't jump the gun because I know everybody's learning curve is a little bit different. Patience is something very needed in this situation."
NOTES: Jennings is 12 of 47 from the field in his last three games. ... Bucks F Carlos Delfino missed his seventh straight game with a neck injury. The team said he was evaluated Wednesday by a neuropsychologist, who determined Delfino is "90 percent free of concussion-like symptoms." Without any setbacks, Delfino could return to normal basketball activity in two weeks. ... Scott is hosting Thanksgiving dinner at his home for Cleveland's coaches and some players. So, what's on the menu? "What's not?" Scott said. ... James' return to Cleveland is one week away.
