Cavs vs. Bucks, Game 27

CAVS (20-7) 85, MILWAUKEE BUCKS (11-13) 82
at Quicken Loans Arena
8 tonight
TV: ESPN, Fox Sports Ohio

WHAT HAPPENED: The Cavs have won 6 in a row over the Bucks. G Delonte West has been outstanding in both games against the Bucks this season. He's averaging 16.5 points in his two games vs. Milwaukee.

"He played hard-nosed defense," Cavs coach Mike Brown said. "He brought a sense of toughness to our team. He attacked the rim."

When he sees Bucks G Luke Ridnour, his eyes light up. West and Ridnour were teammates in Seattle.

The Cavs haven't lost to Milwaukee since March 22, 2008.

RECORD BOOK: Anyone reading the Bucks record book will find G Michael Redd’s name in a different place after Wednesday’s game against the Lakers. Redd hit 11 field goals against L.A., giving him 4,002 for his career and passing Sidney Moncrief (4,000) for 7th in Bucks history.

Redd, who scored a season-high 25 against the Lakers, is also 21 free throws from passing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 2,407 for 2nd in franchise history (currently has 2,387) and 11 3s away from reaching 1,000 for his career.

The Ohio State product is 56th all-time in 3-pointers (23rd among active players) and 232nd in NBA history in scoring. After returning from injury, the veteran guard is averaging 18.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.5 steals in two games off the bench.
