Jim Furyk in 2006 and 2007.Johnson

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Milwaukee Bucks will try to win three straight games for a third time this season Friday, when they welcome the Central-rival Indiana Pacers to the Bradley Center. The Bucks posted three straight wins twice in November from the 16-19 and 25-28. They have won two in a row and three of the last four games, including Wednesdays 96-80 road win over the LeBron James-less Cleveland Cavaliers. Kevin Love did not play either. Brandon Knight scored 26 points on 11-of-19 shooting and he buried 4-of-9 from beyond the arc. O.J. Mayo scored 15 points off the bench and Giannis Antetokounmpo netted 14 for the Bucks, who led 31-18 after the first quarter and limited the Cavs to only seven points in the third (19-7). I thought we got off to a good start on the road, then they came back a little bit in the second, said Bucks coach Jason Kidd. We came out after halftime getting stops and that was big. Milwaukee hit 7-of-9 3-pointers in the first quarter and committed a season- low 10 turnovers. It is 10-0 this season when holding teams under 90 points. Bucks guard Jerryd Bayless (knee), forward Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) and center Larry Sanders (flu) are questionable versus the Pacers. The Bucks are 7-6 at the Bradley Center this season. Indiana will play the next four games on the road against the Bucks, Los Angeles Lakers, Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors, and is 5-12 away from home. The Pacers recorded a 106-95 triumph over the Miami Heat on New Years Eve, as reserve C.J. Miles made five 3-pointers en route to 25 points and George Hill added a season-best 20 points in a winning effort. Roy Hibbert contributed 10 points and 10 rebounds for Indiana, which had a 64-44 scoring advantage in the second half. A 24-4 run bridging the third and fourth quarters extinguished the Heat. We werent in a great rhythm in the first half, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. Once we made some plays in the third quarter, the crowd got behind us and it changed. C.J. Watson scored 11 points off Indianas bench, which has scored 40 or more points in each of the last six games and 12 times in the past 14. Indiana has won four of its last six games and has held its last three opponents under 100 points. It is first in opponents scoring at 96.3 ppg. The Pacers lost to the Bucks, 87-81, on Nov. 4 and Knight led all scorers with 23 points in that one. Milwaukee snapped a six-game slide in the series with that victory. The Pacers have won two straight and five of the last seven trips to Brew City.

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla.  . - A week after a late-game debacle on defence, the Pittsburgh Steelers showed they can finish.And the same unit that was embarrassed at home against Tampa Bay surely strutted as it left EverBank Field in Jacksonville.Brice McCain returned an interception 22 yards for a touchdown, helping the Steelers overcome a mediocre offensive performance and beat the winless Jaguars 17-9 Sunday.McCain stepped in front of receiver Allen Hurns early in the fourth quarter, picked off rookie Blake Bortles wobbly sideline pass and went untouched the other way.It was just what the Steelers (3-2) needed to gain a little breathing room in a game much tighter than they probably expected.I like the way we finished, especially when you consider that we didnt do a good job of it last week and it cost us the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. The defence had the necessary stop there in the latter part of the game, created a turnover and put points on the board for us.Trailing by eight, the Jaguars (0-5) forced a punt and got the ball back. But Bortles failed to muster a first down.Ben Roethlisberger closed it out from there, directing a four-minute drive that ran out the clock. Roethlisberger completed 26 of 36 passes for 273 yards and a touchdown. His 1-yard scoring pass to tight end Michael Palmer put the Steelers up 10-3 late in the second quarter.Roethlisberger also connected on 15 of his final 17 passes.But much of the postgame talk was about McCains game-changing play.Any time you get a turnover, its huge, Steelers cornerback Cortez Allen said. But any time you get a turnover and score off it, its bigger. That turnover swung the momentum back in our favour.Pittsburghs defence looked somewhat suspect in the first four games, giving up 350 yards and 25 points a game.The defence seemed to return to form against Jacksonville a€” no surprise given defensive co-ordinator Dick LeBeaus history against rookie quarterbacks.The Jaguars finished with 243 yards and were 3 of 12 on third-down conversions. The Steelers improved to 18-2 against rookie QBs since LeBeau returned in 2004. McCains pick was the highlight.Anytime you can get an interception, it gets you off the field and thats what you aim to do, he said. When you can score, it makes it that much better.The Jaguars didnt want a moral victory, but surely they will try to build on a close loss after dropping their past five games by double digits.Jacksonville was in this one from start to finish.Making his first start at home, Bortles completed 22 of 36 passes for 191 yards. He was hampered by several dropped passes a€” including three by Hurns a€” and a handful of untimely penalties. But Bortles second interception was the biggest mistake.Bad read, bad throw, Bortles said.Hurns dropped passes on three of Jacksonvilles first four possessions. He also was flagged for offensive holding.Im very disappointed, Hurns said. Youve got to be accountable. When the balls coming to you, youve got to make those plays. So at the end of the day its not acceptable. Its all about being consistent. When the plays come to you, youve got to make them.Jacksonville had plenty of other chances, but Pittsburgh held on three trips inside the 25-yard line and forced the Jags to settle for field goals.Jacksonvilles defensive effort was more surprising.The Jaguars had been gouged in every game this season, giving up an average of 451 yards and 38 points in the first four weeks. Coach Gus Bradley made a couple of personnel changes, but insisted the units better days were ahead.Jacksonville held LeVeon Bell to 82 yards rushing on 15 carries and kept Antonio Brown and Heath Miller in check, too. Brown finished with five receptions for 84 yards, and Miller added three catches for 46 yards a week after hauling in a career-high 10 passes.At the end of the day, our focus here is to get better and to correct the things we havent been doing well, Jaguars cornerback Alan Ball. Today, just playing for four quarters, thats what Im energized about. Thats one thing we should build on.Notes: Steelers backup SS Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) left the game and did not return. ... Jaguars lost RBs Toby Gerhart, Storm Johnson, and Jordan Todman to ankle injuries at different points in the game. ... Jaguars WR Ace Sanders caught two passes for 12 yards and returned three punts for 14 yards in his first game back from a four-game suspension.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL  . The England international raised his middle finger toward Manchester City supporters during Saturdays game at Etihad Stadium, which Arsenal lost 6-3. The incident was not seen by match officials at the time but the FA charged Wilshere retrospectively after a study of video footage.  . Pretty good hitting, too. Dan Haren pitched six innings and sparked the go-ahead rally with a single, leading Los Angeles to another win over the skidding Atlanta Braves, 4-2 on Tuesday night.SEATTLE -- Learning that former Padres Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn had died completely changed Chris Youngs outlook on pitching against his former team. "I think any fun about pitching against them disappeared this morning with the news of Tony passing," the Mariners right-hander said after Seattles 5-1 win over San Diego on Monday night. "My condolences go out to his family, the Padres organization, the city of San Diego. He meant a lot to everyone there and Im grateful I had the opportunity to work with him and get to know him." The loss capped a sombre day for the Padres organization. Gwynn, 54, died Monday morning of oral cancer, a disease he attributed to years of chewing tobacco. "Even though were away from San Diego I think the Mariners did a good job of putting Tony out there," Padres manager Bud Black said. Kyle Seager hit a three-run homer in the first inning, Brad Miller added a solo shot, and Young threw six shutout innings against his former team. San Diego was on the verge of being shut out by Young (6-4) and a pair of relievers until Carlos Quentin hit a solo homer leading off the ninth. But Gwynn was on everyones mind at Safeco Field. Seattle honoured Gwynn with a video tribute and moment of silence before the game and put a 19 on the dirt in the hole between the shortstop and third baseman. Gwynn called that the "5.5 hole" and many of his 3,141 hits went through it. San Diego added black armbands to its uniform in honour of Gwynn, and his No. 19 jersey hung in the Padres dugout. His jersey also was scattered among fans in attendance. "He is the city of San Diego. You talk Padres baseball, Tony Gwynn is everything there," Young said. Seagers homer came on a 3-0 pitch from San Diego starter Tyson Ross (6-6). Coming off a 4-for-4 performance on Sunday, Seager was given the green light and hit his 10th homer of the season. Miller followed with a ssolo homer an inning later. . . Robinson Cano added an RBI double as Seattle scored all five runs in the first two innings. Seager leads Seattle in home runs and has seven hits in his last 10 at-bats with six RBIs. James Jones also stole three bases and scored twice for Seattle. "Its a good feeling that the skipper has confidence in you, thats always good," Seager said. "In that situation I had seen a couple of pitches ... when you get the opportunity you have to make sure you capitalize and get a ball in the air. Young was once an All-Star for the Padres and has become a valuable acquisition since joining Seattle at the end of spring training. After losing his last two starts, Young gave up two hits in the first inning and then cruised. He retired 16 of the final 19 batters he faced, giving up a pair of singles and issuing one walk. He matched his season high with six strikeouts. Joe Beimel, who gave up the final home run in Gwynns career, pitched one inning of relief for Seattle. Tom Wilhelmsen then got the final six outs, but couldnt complete the shutout giving up Quentins third homer of the season. Ross had allowed only one homer in his previous six starts, but struggled all night. He walked a career-high seven and at least one in every inning. Ross pitched into the sixth inning and helped save the Padres bullpen. "My command wasnt very sharp tonight," Ross said. "I kind of grinded through some innings there and overall just wasnt in the strike zone early and often enough." NOTES: Young has now faced all 30 teams in the majors. ... Seattle hopes to send injured 1B Justin Smoak (quad) out on a rehab assignment Wednesday. Corey Hart (hamstring) and Michael Saunders (shoulder) could join Smoak on rehab assignments by the end of the week. ... In 11 career games against Seattle, Gwynn hit .261 (12 for 46) with three doubles and four RBIs. ' ' '
