In-game blog (Bucks 114, Kings 108 2OT and more on Evans' injury)

Tyreke Evans has a concussion, gum laceration and chipped tooth. He will have another X-ray Saturday morning to determine if he has a fractured jaw. Evans will not travel to Los Angeles for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

He took an elbow to the mouth and then hit his head on the floor late in the fourth quarter. After being looked at on the Kings bench, Evans was taken to the locker room for further tests.

As for the game, Brandon Jennings had 35 points and eight assists. John Salmons had 27 points and Andrew Bogut had 21 points and 11 rebounds.

The Kings were led by Beno Udrih with 26 points and nine assists.

FIRST OVERTIME (Kings 101, Bucks 101)

Brandon Jennings missed a jumper and a tip in by the Bucks just missed to send this game to a second overtime.

Jennings has 33 points. Beno Udrih leads the Kings with 22 points. Tyreke Evans left the game late in the fourth after getting hit in the mouth and did not play in the first overtime.

FOURTH QUARTER (Kings 95, Bucks 95)

The Bucks closed the fourth on an 11-4 run, much of it with Tyreke Evans in the back injured.

THIRD QUARTER (Kings 73, Bucks 66)

The Kings' good shooting from the second quarter carried over into the third. The Kings are shooting 52 percent. Meanwhile, the Bucks have cooled and are shooting 41 percent and shooting just 57 percent on free throws.

Spencer Hawes has played well (14 points, seven rebounds) while going against a good center in Milwaukee's Andrew Bogut.

SECOND QUARTER (Bucks 49, Kings 48)

The Kings played much better, but the second quarter was the Brandon Jennings Show.

The Bucks rookie guard has 22 points, 16 coming in the second. Meanwhile, his rookie counterpart, Tyreke Evans has nine points. Beno Udrih leads the Kings with 10 points.

Jennings might be the quickest player on the floor, but he did his damage in the first half from the perimeter. He made 5 of 6 three pointers in an impressive performance.

The Kings still closed the gap because the bench played well. The Kings have 16 bench points compared to six for the Bucks.

FIRST QUARTER (Bucks 29, Kings 21)

The last time John Salmons was in Sacramento, he played for the Chicago Bulls and was struggling to find his offense.

He's back tonight as a Milwaukee Buck and his offense is looking fine.

Salmons, the former King, has 11 points to lead all scorers. Spencer Hawes leads the Kings with five points.

Milwaukee is shooting 55 percent, compared to 39 percent for the Kings.
