MILWAUKEE -- The injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks have been a doormat for just about everyone in the first month of the season. 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. .

Mako Vunipola was promoted from the reserves, with Matt Mullan called up to the bench on Thursday. "It is important that Joe is with his partner at this exciting time," England coach Stuart Lancaster said. "Family must always come first." The other change to the matchday squad of 23 saw centre Manu Tuilagi named on the bench in place of Alex Goode after recovering from a pectoral muscle injury that kept him out for six months. He is expected to make his first England appearance in a year in Rome. The English still have a chance to win the Six Nations if they defeat Italy and France beat Ireland. However, they must also overhaul Irelands points superiority should the Irish win in Paris. Tuilagis return was widely expected after EEngland coaches even considered including him in their squad for the crunch game against Wales until Lancaster decided it would be safer to wait one more week.dddddddddddd. England hopes Tuilagis power will be a decisive factor in Rome as Lancasters team hopes to pile on the points. "The Wales result was very significant for us but we need to finish the tournament well in Rome," Lancaster said. "We have had a tight turnaround and the key this week has been to manage the players recovery and get them in the best shape for what will be a tough match against Italy." ------ England: Mike Brown, Jack Nowell, Luther Burrell, Billy Twelvetrees, Jonny May, Owen Farrell, Danny Care; Ben Morgan, Chris Robshaw (captain), Tom Wood, Courtney Lawes, Joe Launchbury, David Wilson, Dylan Hartley, Mako Vunipola.
