NEW YORK — Brandon Jennings scored a season-high 36 points, and the Milwaukee Bucks won on the road for the first time this season by beating the New York Knicks 100-86 Friday night.

The Bucks won for the sixth time in their last seven trips to New York, where they played better than a Knicks team that has lost five straight overall and heard frequent boos after turning the ball over or missing shots right at the rim all night.

Milwaukee snapped a three-game overall skid and improved to 1-8 on the road. The Bucks dominated the second half behind Jennings, who loves to make the Knicks pay for passing on him with the No. 8 pick in the 2009 draft.
