MILWAUKEE: GUARDS: BRANDON JENNINGS benefitted from the arrival of Monta Ellis last year. He has the offense and system to thrive, and now needs to prove he can be efficient enough to be a star . . . MONTA ELLIS played second fiddle to Jennings last year, and really struggled to shoot the ball. The Bucks now play the kind of tempo he likes, but he'll have to adjust to playing off the ball more often . . . BENO UDRIH won't see a ton of action off the bench considering Jennings and Ellis play so many minutes. If a starter gets hurt, he could step in and hit a lot of threes . . . Second-rounder DORON LAMB has some upside as a future sixth man, but figures to ride the bench this year once his torn elbow ligament heals. FORWARDS: ERSAN ILYASOVA should finally get some respect from Skiles after starring down the stretch last year . . . MIKE DUNLEAVY re-emerged as a legitimate three-point threat, though he doesn't do much else . . . DREW GOODEN's role should shrink with Ilyasova stepping up and Sam Dalembert coming in . . . LUC RICHARD MBAH a MOUTE is coming off knee surgery, but he's improving as a rebounder and can play both forward spots off the bench . . . Rookie JOHN HENSON is a defensive stud and does enough as a screener to get decent minutes early . . . TOBIAS HARRIS was a Summer League star, but he's too much of a 'tweener to thrive in the NBA . . . EKPE UDOH provides defense and rebounding off the bench . . . LARRY SANDERS has potential, but this frontcourt is too crowded for him to make an impact. CENTERS: SAM DALEMBERT fell in and out of favor in Houston, but he's exactly what the Bucksneed as a defensive presence in the paint. Milwaukee has numerous players who can man the five in spots (Ekpe Udoh, Drew Gooden), but Dalembert is by far their best defensive option and should see big minutes . . . JOEL PRZYBILLA signed on in August to provide back-end depth on the pine.
ATLANTA: GUARDS: GM Danny Ferry has really talked up JEFF TEAGUE, who will be more of a traditional point guard with Joe Johnson gone . . . DEVIN HARRIS is going to play plenty of minutes, both alongside Teague and off the bench . . . LOU WILLIAMS is a sixth man. He lacks the mentality to run the point and the size to guard opposing twos. His role will be similar to what it was in Philly . . . KYLE KORVER and ANTHONY MORROW are pure shooters who do little else. They can play the three in a pinch, and the hot hand will get the minutes . . . Coach Larry Drew could call on DeSHAWN STEVENSON for the occasional defense-heavy lineup. More likely, he'll rack up the DNP-CDs . . . JOHN JENKINS might be the best shooter in the rookie class, but he'll be buried on the depth chart. FORWARDS: JOSH SMITH rescinded his trade demand, perhaps because he'll now be the focal point of the offense. He was more aggressive on both ends of the floor last year. As long as he resists the urge to float on the perimeter, he should emerge as an All-Star . . . Considering the makeup of this roster, Atlanta will utilize a lot of three-guard lineups. Korver and Morrow can stretch a defense from that third guard/small forward spot, with Stevenson stepping in as an agitator . . . After scoring double-figures six times in April, IVAN JOHNSON was re-signed to once again provide some muscle inside . . . Rookie MIKE SCOTT is polished after five years at Virginia, but doesn't have the athleticism to be an impact player . . . ANTHONY TOLLIVER is a defensive specialist with very little offense to contribute. CENTERS: AL HORFORD will get his wish to play more power forward this season, though he'll remain their primary option at center. He's healthy again and is one of the most consistent bigs in the NBA . . . ZAZA PACHULIA filled in admirably for Horford last year. But it's back to bench duty for the bruising big . . . JOHAN PETRO is French for "12th man."

*Bucks-Hawks Preview* =====================


Milwaukee (34-32) at Atlanta (37-30), 7:30 p.m. EDT

Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew was anything but pleased after watching his team get outplayed from start to finish in the opener of a three-game homestand.

The Milwaukee Bucks, meanwhile, won their last game after coming out strong from the opening tip.

Atlanta aims to get back on track Wednesday night versus Milwaukee, which hopes to avoid a ninth loss in its last 10 visits to Philips Arena.

The Hawks (37-30) followed a 1-6 stretch with three straight wins, but saw their woes resume Monday in a 127-113 loss to Dallas. Atlanta gave up its most points this season and allowed the Mavericks to shoot 57.3 percent.

"They brought the game to us from the very beginning, they had us on our heels all night long," Drew said. "We're going to have to just roll our sleeves up. I can't make any excuses for a performance like that. This is just the time of the year where we have to suck it up."

Jeff Teague scored 19 points to lead eight Atlanta players in double figures, but the Hawks lost for only the second time in 16 games when they make more than half of their shots.

"Kind of have to go back to square one a little bit and start with the basics on the defense," forward Anthony Tolliver said. "At the end of the day, it's only one game, but we've got some work to do."

Two nights after erasing a 13-point fourth-quarter deficit in a 115-109 victory over Orlando, Milwaukee (34-32) made a point to come out focused Tuesday versus Portland. Brandon Jennings scored 24 points and Monta Ellis added 21 along with nine rebounds and eight assists in a 102-95 win.

The Bucks, who outscored the Trail Blazers 31-8 in the second quarter, led by as many as 27 before holding on.

"We just wanted to come out with a lot of energy," said Ellis, who appears to be OK after injuring his left wrist late in the game. "We didn't want to play with this team and try to climb back like we had to do (Sunday). They made a run, which this is the NBA. But we were able to close the game out."

Milwaukee shot 48.3 percent, including 9 of 19 from 3-point range. The Bucks have gone 33-17 when shooting at least 40.0 percent compared to 1-15 otherwise.

"When guys are hitting shots all around, it makes everything much easier," said Ellis, who has topped 20 points in 11 of his last 12 games, shooting 50.4 percent in that stretch. "That's how we got the big lead, sharing the ball. Everybody was in a groove, everybody was feeling good."

Milwaukee could have a hard time keeping things going if its recent efforts in Atlanta are any indication. The Bucks have especially struggled on the defensive end during their 1-8 stretch on the road in this series, with the Hawks shooting 50.6 percent.

Atlanta, among the teams the Bucks are chasing as they try to climb up from the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference, has taken four of five from Milwaukee overall, including a 103-102 road win in the only previous matchup this season Feb. 23. Teague, Devin Harris and Al Horford combined for 67 points, with Horford making a go-ahead baby hook shot with 5.9 seconds left.

Josh Smith, who was coveted by Milwaukee before the trade deadline, had 15 points and 13 rebounds that night. Atlanta is 16-3 when he pulls down more than 10 boards.

Bucks starting forward Ersan Ilyasova, who had averaged 22.3 points and 13.3 rebounds over a three-game stretch before Tuesday, sat out against Portland due to left hip pain and is unlikely to face the Hawks.

These teams meet again Sunday in Milwaukee.
