NEWARK, N.J. — Chris Douglas-Roberts celebrated his birthday by scoring 24 points against his former teammates to lead the Milwaukee Bucks to a 115-92 victory over the New Jersey Nets on Saturday night.

Ersan Ilyasova added a season-high 22 points and 13 rebounds, and Earl Boykins had 17 points as the Bucks snapped a three-game losing streak and beat the Nets for the sixth straight time.

Milwaukee, the NBA's worst shooting team at 41.3 percent from the field, shot a season-best 58.3 percent in scoring a season high in points despite having center Andrew Bogut sidelined with a viral infection.

Kris Humphries scored a season-high 22 points and Jordan Farmar, who started with Devin Harris out with a bruised leg, had 20 points and 10 rebounds.
