--G Brandon Jennings' shooting woes in the pros have been well-chronicled. After shooting a feeble 37 percent as a rookie last season, Jennings is shooting just 38 percent this season. But Jennings has shot the ball well in the last five games. In that span, he's connected on 33 of 72 field-goal attempts -- a very respectable 46 percent.
--G John Salmons is the Bucks' shooting guard, although he's been looking more like a playmaking guard. Salmons had recorded four or more assists in four of the last five games, including seven against the 76ers on Saturday night. Salmons totaled 24 assists in that five-game stretch, or 4.8 assists a game and well above of his 3.3 average for the season.
--F Carlos Delfino didn't go to the free throw one time Sunday against the Celtics. That shouldn't be surprising, though. Delfino hasn't been to the line much lately. In fact, in the last six games, he didn't take a free throw in four of them. In the other two games, he took only two and three.
--F Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) sat out his eighth straight game Sunday against the Celtics. Bucks officials said there isn't any timetable for Ilyasova's return.
--F Drew Gooden (plantar fasciitis and bruised heel) hopes to return to practice on Monday.
--G Michael Redd (knee surgery) has rejoined the team but said he doesn't expect to play until later this month.
