(MILWAUKEE) — J.J. Redick is already making an impact on his new team.
Redick scored eight points in overtime to lead the Milwaukee Bucks past the Utah Jazz, 109-108 at the Bradley Center on Monday night.
Redick, who was acquired in a trade deadline deal with Orlando, scored 17 points overall. “I was just taking what was there. I didn’t feel like I was struggling at all (in regulation),” Redick said. “I got good looks and the ball was in and out a lot of times. I never feel like I’m struggling. I always feel like the next shot is going in.”
Monta Ellis scored 34 points for Milwaukee (30-28), who have won four straight.
Derrick Favors had 23 points and 15 rebounds for the Jazz (32-28), but did not play in the fourth quarter or overtime.
“We had some lapses on defense and they got some open 3s and on the road, that’s tough,” Jazz forward Paul Millsap said.
