Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks accomplished something on Thursday they hadn't since Ronald Reagan was in the Oval Office.

Monta Ellis scored a game-high 24 points and the Bucks used a late run in the fourth quarter to beat the Suns in Phoenix, 98-94, for the first time since Feb. 21, 1987.

Larry Sanders had a career-high 19 points with 15 rebounds and recorded two big blocks during the Bucks' game-sealing 10-0 run. Brandon Jennings and Mike Dunleavy each netted 16 points in Milwaukee's fourth win in six games.

The Suns had won 24 straight at the hosts in this series, including all 19 contests at US Airways Center, which opened in 1992.

Shannon Brown paced Phoenix, which has dropped four straight at home for the first time since March 2004, with 20 points, while Luis Scola added 16 points and eight boards in defeat.
