(Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks try for their first road win of the
season this evening when they head to Boston to battle the Celtics at the
Last season the Bucks took three of four from the Celtics and have won four of
five and five of the last seven meetings. Milwaukee, which has won 17 of the
last 22 overall matchups, has also had success in Beantown, where it is 8-4 in
its last 12 visits.
The Bucks wrapped up a brief two-game homestand on a losing note on Tuesday
with a 95-90 setback at the hands of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Desmond Mason poured in 32 points to lead the Bucks, who have lost seven of
their last eight games. Maurice Williams added 21 points and 11 assists in the
loss, and Keith Van Horn contributed 11 points with 10 rebounds.
On the injury front center Daniel Santiago (scratched cornea) and forward Joe
Smith (left hip strain) both missed last night’s affair and are both expected
to miss tonight’s contest. Also center Zendon Hamilton was activated from the
injured list prior to the game, but did not play.
Milwaukee, which will host the San Antonio Spurs at the Bradley Center on
Saturday, is winless in all six games away from home this season. This is the
longest road-slide to start a season since the club lost a team-record 12
straight road games to start the 1976-77 campaign.
