CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Luc Mbah a Moute scored 13 of his 20 points in the second half and the Milwaukee Bucks had 72 points inside the paint in a 112-92 rout of the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night.

Ersan Ilyasova had 15 points and Drew Goodson added 14 points and 12 rebounds as six Bucks players scored in double digits. Monta Ellis chipped in with 13 points and Brandon Jennings added 12 for Milwaukee.

The Bucks had no problem exploiting the smaller Bobcats, who were without center Gana Diop and forward Eddy Najera, and had waived Boris Diaw earlier in the week, leaving them with very little in the way of height.
