Rockets Vs. Bucks: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Houston tries to make it eight in a row against a talented young Milwaukee squad coming off victories over Miami and New York.

The Houston Rockets go for their eighth consecutive win Wednesday night when they host the Milwaukee Bucks.

While Milwaukee is only 6-10, their record is a bit deceiving, as the majority of those losses have come without Andrew Bogut, who missed a big stretch of games when he had to return to his native Australia for personal reasons.

With Bogut in the line-up, the Bucks beat both the Miami Heat and New York Knicks on the road in the last week.

Milwaukee's other main scorer is third-year PG Brandon Jennings, who is averaging 20 points and 6 assists on 44% shooting this season. The match-up between Jennings and Kyle Lowry, two of the NBA's rising young stars at the point guard position, will be one of the biggest factors in deciding the game.

The only other Buck capable of creating his own shot besides Jennings or Bogut is mercurial small forward Stephen Jackson, who is averaging only 36.2% shooting this season and has already been suspended for off-court behavior as he tries to wrangle one final contract extension.

The 7:00 PM game will be broadcast regionally on Fox Sports Houston.
