Ilyasova scores 31, Bucks beat Jazz 114-88Submitted: 03/03/2014
Story By Associated Press

MILWAUKEE - Ersan Ilyasova scored a season-high 31 points on 13-of-14 shooting, and the Milwaukee Bucks hit a blistering 57 percent from the field to beat the Utah Jazz 114-88 on Monday night.

Zaza Pachulia added 14 points, six rebounds and five assists, and five Bucks scored in double digits. The NBA's worst team improved to 12-47 and enjoyed a rare breather at home.

Enes Kanter had 27 points to lead Utah, mired by a mistake-prone third quarter in which the Bucks regularly led by at least 20.

NBA Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar took in some of the action. Drafted No. 1 overall by the Bucks in 1969, Abdul-Jabbar was in town to promote a tourism ad for the state of Wisconsin that played off his acting role in the movie ``Airplane.''

PRENTICE - Almost a mile of forest and underbrush stands blackened near a Price County railroad track.

A train likely sent sparks flying into the woods as it passed through the area on Tuesday afternoon. That ignited dry grass, trees, and brush near the tracks. The fire put DNR and local firefighters in action fighting the long, narrow fire.

"We believe it was caused by a train," said the DNR's incident commander, Joe Danowski. "It spread about three-quarters of a mile along the north side of the tracks."
