NBA Preview from The Sports Network
Wednesday, March 21st (All times eastern)
Los Angeles Clippers (31-36) at Milwaukee Bucks (25-41),8 p.m.
(Sports Network) - The Los Angeles Clippers will try to build some momentum tonight when they travel to Milwaukee to battle the Bucks at the Bradley Center.
The Clippers won for just the second time in eight games on Tuesday after knocking off the Chicago Bulls, 103-89. The victory came at the right time, though, as the club moved into a virtual tie with Golden State for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Cuttino Mobley had 25 points and Corey Maggette added 22 to help the Clippers to the win. Elton Brand donated 21 points and 12 boards against his former team.
Guard Sam Cassell missed the game and is questionable tonight due to back spasms.
The win improved Los Angeles to 2-3 on its current six-game road trip and 10-24 overall as the visitor. The Clippers have lost seven of their last nine road contests.
LA has won its last four meetings with Milwaukee, including a 115-96 win at home in late January. The Clippers have bested the Bucks in six of the last seven meetings overall.
Milwaukee improved to 2-0 under new head coach Larry Krystkowiak with a 97-91 win over Charlotte on Saturday. Krystkowiak took over when Terry Stotts was fired a week ago and the team bested San Antonio in Krystkowiak's debut last Thursday.
Michael Redd scored 27 points against the Bobcats, as Milwaukee improved to 3-2 on its current seven-game homestand that concludes on Sunday against Detroit.
Andrew Bogut posted 17 points and 11 rebounds and Charlie Bell had 18 points in the win, which pushed the Bucks' home mark to 16-15. Mo Williams added 17 points.
The Bucks are tied for 12th in the East, five games out of a playoff spot.
