MILWAUKEE -- The injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks have been a doormat for just about everyone in the first month of the season. Christian Kirk Cardinals Jersey . The Boston Celtics are about the lone exception. O.J. Mayo rebounded from a subpar game with 22 points and the Bucks snapped an 11-game losing streak with a 92-85 victory over Boston on Saturday night. "It feels good to get that monkey off your back," Milwaukee coach Larry Drew said. "It really does. Especially kind of the way we did it, short-handed as we were, playing some guys out of position. Its kind of been our story pretty much all season long." Two of Milwaukees three victories this season have come against Boston. The Bucks beat the Celtics, 105-98, on Nov. 1 in Boston. Jared Sullinger scored 21 points and had 14 rebounds, while Jeff Green and Jordan Crawford added 18 points apiece for the Celtics. The Bucks went to a zone defence, and Boston missed 40 of its final 62 shots. "We just were kind of waiting to see if they made shots, and they didnt fall for them, so we stuck with it," Drew said. Boston coach Brad Stevens said his teams struggles simply were due to missing shots. "We moved the ball against the zone and attacked where we wanted to," he said. "We just didnt make as many as we wanted to." The Celtics missed 15 of 19 3-point attempts. "We definitely had a good amount of looks, but we just werent able to knock them down," Bostons Avery Bradley said. "Probably every 3 we took was wide open. We just werent able to convert." Despite having the worst record in the Eastern Conference at 3-13, Milwaukee is only three games behind Detroit (6-10), which currently is in the eighth spot in the mediocre Eastern Conference. "To get a fire, all it takes is a spark, so nows the time to keep it going," said Ekpe Udoh, who had seven of his nine points in the fourth quarter. Milwaukees Brandon Knight had his second consecutive solid game, scoring 20 points with nine rebounds and eight assists after scoring 17 points against Charlotte. "I came close (to a triple-double) but more importantly we got a win to snap our streak," Knight said. Boston missed its first nine shots of the fourth quarter, allowing Milwaukee to go on a 10-0 run and take an 80-63 lead on Gary Neals short jumper with 7:24 to go. The Celtics then went on an 18-5 run, pulling within 88-81 on Greens 3-pointer with 1:20 to go. After each team failed to score on their next possessions, Knight made a layup to make it 90-81 with 55 seconds to go. Mayo scored only five points on 2-of-11 shooting in the Bucks 92-76 loss Friday night at Charlotte, but shot 9 of 14 Saturday to give Milwaukee its first win since beating Cleveland 109-104 on Nov. 6. Knight said he and Mayo would make a good duo as the season progressed. "I was out and he has his little nicks and bruises," Knight said. "As we play more and more, and as I get my feet wet and get more adjusted to playing with him, and him with me, I think were going to be a tough backcourt." John Henson had a season-high 13 points and 13 rebounds for Milwaukee. Mayo had eight points in the third quarter and the Bucks led 70-63 heading to the fourth. Knight made all five of his shots, including two 3-pointers, to score 12 points in the second quarter, helping Milwaukee to a 47-41 halftime lead. The Bucks took the lead for good at 44-41 on Knights 3-pointer with 1:42 left in the half. Notes: Caron Butler (knee) and Ersan Ilysasova (hamstring, thumb) missed the game for Milwaukee. Butler is expected to miss about a week. ... Rajon Rondo (knee rehab), Kelly Olynyk (sprained right ankle) and Courtney Lee (sore knee) didnt make the trip to Milwaukee. .

DARTMOUTH, Mass. -- Former NFL star Aaron Hernandez was involved in a scuffle with another jail inmate, but neither man required medical attention, a Massachusetts sheriff said Wednesday. The brief fight took place around noon Tuesday in a common area of the Bristol County House of Correction in Dartmouth, where only one inmate is supposed to be out of his cell at a time, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson said. Its unclear which inmate was the aggressor. Hodgson said jail staff are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance video to figure out exactly what happened and determine whether disciplinary measures or even criminal charges are warranted. "It was very brief. The officers were right there and it was stopped within seconds, maybe a minute," Hodgson said. Chad Williams Jersey. The jail is also reviewing procedures to figure out how the two inmates were allowed out of their cells at the same time. Hodgson did not release the other inmates name and said he did not know of any previous tension between the two men. "We dont know what, if any, relationship there was or has been at any point, either here or anywhere else," Hodgson said. Both Hernandez and the other inmate have been moved to other units until the investigation is completed. Hernandez, a former New England Patriots tight end, is being held without bail after pleading not guilty to murder in the death of 27-year-old Odin Lloyd. The Boston man was dating the sister of Hernandezs fiancee.
