MILWAUKEE (AP) — 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."
