Milwaukee Bucks (2-5) at Atlanta Hawks (4-2), 7 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks will try and halt a four-game losing streak tonight when they visit the Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena.
Milwaukee suffered a 113-111 loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday despite a huge performance by Michael Redd, who recorded a franchise-record 57 points. He made 18-of-32 shots from the field, including 6-of-12 from beyond the arc, and buried 15-of-17 from the free-throw line to break Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's mark of 55 points against Boston on December 10, 1971.
However, Redd missed a game-tying foul shot with 12.1 seconds remaining and the game-winning shot at the buzzer. Ruben Patterson scored 18 points for Milwaukee, while Charlie Bell added 11 points in defeat.
The Bucks are 1-3 on the road this season and will travel to New Jersey after Tuesday's game in Atlanta.
Meanwhile, the Hawks had a four-game winning streak come to an end on Saturday with a 113-112 overtime loss against the Seattle SuperSonics.
Joe Johnson led the Hawks with 28 points and 10 rebounds, as the Hawks were trying to win five consecutive games for the first time since 1999. Josh Smith scored 24 points and Zaza Pachulia notched 21 for Atlanta. Josh Childress added 17 off of the bench for the Hawks, who lost for the first time since opening night at Philadelphia.
The Hawks are 0-1 on a three-game homestand and 2-1 as the host this season.
Milwaukee went 3-1 against Atlanta last season and has won six of the last eight meetings. The Bucks have also won two in a row at Philips Arena.
