=== Milwaukee Bucks Team Report – November 20 ===

(Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks lost their third game in a row on
Friday, as they were defeated by the Portland Trail Blazers, 110-98, at the
Rose Garden.

Michael Redd posted 29 points to lead the Bucks, while Desmond Mason chipped
in 22 points off the bench.

The Bucks trailed 47-46 at halftime, but opened the third quarter with a 12-2
spurt and grabbed a 58-49 lead on Redd’s layup at the 8:35 mark.

But the Trail Blazers took control of the game with an impressive 23-5 run
that began moments later. Stoudamire capped the burst with a free throw to
give Portland a 75-67 advantage in the final minute.

The Trail Blazers then carried a 75-69 lead into the fourth quarter, and
Milwaukee was never closer than that the rest of the way.

Redd has scored over 20 points in six straight games and is averaging 26.6
points per contest this season.

Milwaukee, which is 0-3 away from home this season, continues its four-game
road trip on Sunday in Sacramento. The Bucks split their two matchups with the
Kings last season, but Sacramento has won six of the last 10 meetings.
Milwaukee has also lost three of five and six of its last nine in Sacramento.
