Kidd: Bucks not planning to make a move

Milwaukee coach Jason Kidd allayed any rumors of a Bucks trade at the deadline, saying no major changes are planned: "As a professional athlete, the small print says there could be a trade at some point in your career. Sometimes expected, sometimes not. You have to be able to handle that. But right now, this is our team. There's no one coming in and there's no one leaving."

What a sixth man!

Greg Monroe was held out of the Bucks' starting lineup for the first time this season on Tuesday night against the Celtics but nearly equaled his average court time at 29:32. Elias Sports Bureau reports that Monroe produced the most points (29) and rebounds (12) by any NBA sub this season in Milwaukee's 112-111 win.

Bucks 112, Celtics 111: The hero last week in Cleveland, Avery Bradley with a terrible foul in the final second as Milwaukee escaped with a win. Celtics had rallied all the way back from 19 down to start the fourth quarter and Kelly Olynyk's clutch free throws with 1 second to go had tied the game. Bradley tried to help defend Milwaukee's final shot and fouled Khris Middleton.

Bucks 93, Celtics 74 (end 3rd) Celtics were due for a dud, but not sure they could stop Greg Monroe (27 points) if they were clicking. Bucks doubled up Boston in third quarter (40-20) and lead by 19 heading to final frame.

Celtics 54, Bucks 53 (half): Jonas Jerebko picked up a slumping Boston bench with nine second-quarter points (making just about everything but a heat-check hook shot). Celtics didn't have an answer for off-the-bench Greg Monroe, who has 15 points and helped Bucks dig out of early hole.

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart took an elbow to the nose from teammate Evan Turner while chasing a rebound. He needed a minute to collect himself, but the team says Smart is available to return.

Celtics 30, Bucks 26 (end 1st): Avery Bradley hot early (as usual, lately) and his nine first-quarter points have Celtics out front. Bucks started slow with new-look lineup, but got a spark from Giannis Antetokounmpo to trim deficit after falling behind by double digits.

Boston Celtics swingman Jae Crowder, dinged up lately and battling what he said is a high ankle sprain, is grinding it out again tonight in Milwaukee. No surprise considering he played up there at Marquette. While Crowder clearly isn't himself, he hasn't let his defensive intensity slip.
