Bogut connected on 14-of-19 shots and collected a season high 18 rebounds to go along with 3 assists, 1 steal and 3 blocks in an outstanding individual performance.

Milwaukee limped to victory, missing six consecutive foul shots down the stretch, but a T.J. Ford three-point attempt for the Pacers rimmed out as time expired to hand the Bucks just their third road victory of the season.
