(AP) Al Jefferson scored 19 points, Gerald Henderson added 17 and the Charlotte Bobcats handed the Milwaukee Bucks their eighth straight loss in a 96-72 win Saturday night.

Jefferson, in his second game back from an ankle injury, added seven rebounds for Charlotte, which has won two of three.

Khris Middleton (20 points) led the Bucks, who shot just 35 percent. Milwaukee's losing streak is its longest since closing out the 2007-8 season with eight consecutive losses.

The Bobcats outmuscled the Bucks to pull away. Early in the third quarter, Jefferson went 1 of 2 from the line, but grabbed the rebound and hit two more foul shots for a 50-39 lead.

A smattering of boos rained down for the Bucks with Charlotte up 23 after three quarters.
