=== Milwaukee Bucks Team Report – November 8 ===
(Sports Network) – The Bucks were defeated Friday by the Detroit Pistons,
105-99, in a Central Division battle at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
Michael Redd continued to play well, dropping 28 points to go along with seven
rebounds, but the Bucks still lost for the second time in three games. Damon
Jones scored a season-high 15 for Milwaukee.
With the Pistons up 95-86, the Bucks went on a 9-1 run to pull within one
point. But Richard Hamilton answered with two big jumpers that pushed the lead
to five at 100-95 with 3:02 to play.
Milwaukee then cut the lead to two on a pair of Redd free throws with 39
seconds left, but Chauncey Billups answered with a pair of his own to push the
Pistons’ lead back to four.
Then, Ben Wallace stole an inbounds pass from Tim Thomas and found Billups
across the floor. When Billups was fouled and drained two foul shots, it was
all but over.
Milwaukee hosts Allan Houston and the New York Knicks tonight.
