MEMPHIS - The Milwaukee Bucks hope to end a four-game losing streak against the Grizzlies tonight in Memphis.
The Grizzlies are 10 games above .500 with a two-game winning streak – but they shot a season-low 37-and-a-half percent in their last game, an 80-to-71 win over Chicago on Monday night. Memphis has only shot 42-percent during its last five outings.
The Bucks, meanwhile, are coming off a five-point home win over Indiana last night in which Brandon Jennings stole the show with a season-high 34 points. He had a personal 7-to-2 run which put Milwaukee in front for good, and he scored 11 of the team’s final 13 points. Mike Dunleavy also returned from a bruised knee-bone. He said he felt good, but his conditioning was not where it could be.
The Bucks are 13-10 going into tonight’s contest – and they’re 6-5 on the road. Jennings is shooting just 40-percent in five career games against Memphis.
