MILWAUKEE -

Brandon Jennings scored 29 points and the Milwaukee Bucks gave Jim Boylan a win in his first game as coach with a 108-99 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night.

   The Bucks parted ways with coach Scott Skiles on Monday in what was called a mutual decision, and the Bucks tapped Skiles' top assistant Boylan as a replacement. Milwaukee's new head coach said before the game his top priority would be to get the Bucks playing well again after losing four consecutive games.

   The Suns were a perfect opponent, playing poorly in the last few weeks with nine losses in the last 10 games overall to go with a nine-game losing streak on the road.

   Goran Dragic scored 21 points and Jared Dudley added 18 for Phoenix.
