Celtics Vs. Bucks: Boston Looks To Snap Milwaukee's Winning Streak

The Celtics look to stop the red-hot Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday night.

The Boston Celtics' extended road trip continues against the Milwaukee Bucks Thursday night in the Bradley Center.

Boston rebounded from back-to-back losses to oust the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night, 79-76, in a game that did not feature very much offense. The Celtics erupted for 29 points in the fourth quarter after entering the final period trailing 51-50, holding on for a win that pushed the team's record to 3-3 on its current eight-game road trip. Ray Allen led the Celtics with 19 points, Kevin Garnett added 16 points and eight rebounds, and Rajon Rondo registered a double-double with 10 points and 13 assists.

Milwaukee has been hot, winners of six straight entering Thursday's contest. The Bucks have won their last two by a combined 51 points, smashing the Portland Trail Blazers 116-87 on Tuesday after blasting the Golden St. Warriors 120-98 last Friday.
