KEY POINTS - Keyon Dooling's 23 points against Washington on January 19 were two off his career-high. He
followed that game with a career-best 11 assists on January 21 at Cleveland and then produced another doubledouble
with 13 points and 10 assists at Chicago on January 24. Over his last six contests he's second on the team
with 13.2 points (shooting 48.3 percent from three, 14-29) and is contributing 6.0 assists to go along with a 4.00:1
assist-to-turnover ratio. He has hit at least one 3-pointer in his last nine games and 15 of his last 16 tilts.
MISERLY IN MILWAUKEE - The Bucks defense has been stingy this year, keeping 33 of 42 foes under 100 points
(78.6 percent), which ties them for third, just behind Chicago and Cleveland (34). Over the last 16 games the club
has allowed 100+ points just twice (once was in overtime) and they're allowing 91.3 points on 43.7 percent
shooting (547-1,251). They've also held foes to 32.5 percent shooting from 3-point land (76-234).
EVERYBODY LOVES CHRIS - Chris Douglas-Roberts matched his season-high with 30 points at Chicago on
Monday night. It was one point off his career high of 31 set last season. Douglas-Roberts tallied his 30 in 44
minutes. When the third year pro receives 30 or minutes in a game this season, he's putting up a team-best 20.3
points on 53.1 shooting (52-98) including 50.0 percent from 3-point range (8-16) and 83.3 percent from the line
on a team-high 36 free throw attempts (30 makes). In those seven games he's also contributing 2.9 rebounds, 1.9
assists and 1.1 steals.
WALK THE LINE - Corey Maggette leads the Bucks in made free throws this season with 163. His 4.5 made free throws per game ties him for 25th in the
NBA. Of those players averaging 4.4 free throws per game, Maggette averages the fewest minutes with 21.4. All others average over 30 minutes per game.
Maggette has 4,283 makes from the free throw line in his career (51st in NBA history) and needs 10 to pass Jack Sikma (4,292) for 50th place.
THE BOOK ON BOGUT - Andrew Bogut leads the league in blocks at 2.7 per game. He's also in a stretch where he has blocked at least one shot in 15
consecutive games, the ninth-longest of that kind in the league this year and his second of 10+ games in 2010-11 (he had 13 from Nov 9-Dec 18). The
Aussie is at 546 blocks for his career, closing in on 550 and also third place in franchise history, which currently belongs to Ervin Johnson (586).
LEAPING LARRY - When Bucks rookie Larry Sanders receives 20-plus minutes, he has averaged 9.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 2.7 blocks in 27 minutes
through those 10 tilts (five starts). In the blocks per 48 minutes category, Sanders is second for players who have appeared in at least 20 tilts with 4.5.
Although he hasn't appeared in enough games to qualify as a per-game leader, Sanders has blocked more shots than any other rookie. His 41 total blocks
(in 30 games) ranks third among first and second-year players behind just Serge Ibaka (92 blocks in 44 games) and Taj Gibson (70 blocks in 43 games).
- The Bucks signed Garrett Temple to a 10-day contract Tuesday. Temple, 24, has NBA experience with San
Antonio, Houston and Sacramento and has averaged 4.6 points and 1.1 rebounds in 11.8 minutes in 30
career NBA contests (four starts). He has been with Erie and Rio Grande Valley of the NBA's Development
League this season.
- The Bucks are 0-1 in a stretch where five of seven tilts are on the road. Following this stretch, the team will
have just two road games remaining against the Western Conference, but both in the central time zone - at
Memphis on February 11 and at Oklahoma City on April 13 as the regular season finale.
- In the 17 games that Brandon Jennings has missed Earl Boykins and Keyon Dooling have combined to
average 23.6 points, 9.1 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.9 steals. They've connected on 36.7 percent of their 3-
pointers (40-109) and posted a 2.92:1 assist-to-turnover ratio (152:52).
- Keyon Dooling has posted a 3.20:1 assist-to-turnover ratio, which is good for sixth in the NBA. That mark
would be a career-best, topping his 2.51:1 ratio in 2008-09 with New Jersey. His 147 assists on the year are
the third most in his career (this is his 11th season) behind 270 in 08-09 and 177 in 00-01 (rookie with LAC).
- Andrew Bogut is averaging a career-best 11.6 rebounds this season and is fifth in the league with five games
of 18 or more rebounds. Over his last eight games he's averaged 13.1 boards.
