In the end, the Bucks squeezed just enough out of the pieces that they did have.  Their reward? A weekend road sweep. Playing without Larry Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova, and J.J. Redick, the Bucks dug deep into their rotation to eke out a dramatic 115-113 win over the Sacramento Kings.  With less than five seconds left, Jimmer Fredette intentionally missed a free throw and rebounded it.  Monta Ellis got a hand on the ball though and deflected it. By the time Tyreke Evans regathered it, he only had time to misfire a long, slim hope. He missed. The Bucks happily accepted valuable contributions from unexpected sources like Ekpe Udoh, Gustavo Ayon, Marquis Daniels, Samuel Dalembert, and John Henson.  Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis led the team, and even if their boxscore lines aren’t the fanciest, they did hand out a combined 17 assists while gashing Sacramento’s substandard defense for 20 free throw attempts.
