Milwaukee Bucks Team Report - December 1
=== Milwaukee Bucks Team Report - December 1 ===
(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 FleetCenter.
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.MIL
