Bucks rebound with consecutive wins

(Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks (17-11) have won two consecutive games
after stumbling in late December and are now just one game behind the second-
place Cleveland Cavaliers in the Central Division.

On Monday, Michael Redd netted 29 points to lead the Bucks over the Chicago
Bulls, 93-92, at the United Center. Maurice Williams had 13 points and nine
assists and Jamaal Magloire added 14 points for the Bucks.

The Bucks will continue to play within the Central Division for the rest of
the week. They are scheduled to play two games with Cleveland and another with
the Bulls over the next five days.

Bucks lost their point guard T.J. Ford for up to three weeks with an ankle
injury.

“Everybody knows his speed and how he can push the ball on offense and put
pressure on the defense,” said Bucks coach Terry Stotts.

Guard Charlie Bell (knee) and forward Joe Smith (knee) are also sidelined
indefinitely.

Despite the injuries, the team was a solid 9-5 in December.
