=== Milwaukee Bucks Team Report – January 18 ===
(Sports Network) – Milwaukee came up with a solid 99-92 win over the
Charlotte Bobcats at Charlotte Arena on Tuesday night.
Michael Redd scored a game-high 27 points to spur the Bucks to their first
victory in five games. After hitting just one of his first eight attempts,
Redd finished 8-of-20 from the field and had 21 points in the second half for
Milwaukee, which has still lost seven of its last 11 overall.
Redd has now scored in double-digits in 14 straight contests for the Bucks,
who improved to just 4-15 on the road this season. Desmond Mason added 16
points for Milwaukee, while Dan Gadzuric finished with 13 and 10 rebounds,
including 10 points and eight boards in the first seven minutes of the game.
The Bucks’ Marcus Fizer missed the game with what was reported as a migraine
headache. Fizer should be available later in the week.
The Bucks improved to 8-16 when they score under 100 points. For the year,
Milwaukee is 13-23 and sits in the cellar of the Central Division — 9 1/2
games behind first place Detroit.
Milwaukee, which is in the midst of a three-game road trip, is just 4-15 in
foreign buildings this season.
The Bucks’ week continues on Wednesday, as they will close out their road
swing in New Jersey against the Nets. Milwaukee also has games against Detroit
(Friday) and the Knicks (Sunday) remaining this week.
