--G Michael Redd made his season debut on Monday night against the Bobcats at Charlotte, N.C. Redd, who had been sidelined after undergoing ACL and MCL surgeries, hadn't played since Jan. 10, 2010 and missed 120 games. Redd entered Monday's game at 9:54 of the first quarter. He wound up playing 15 minutes against the Bobcats and failed to score, missing all three of his shots.
--Monday's matchup between the Bucks and Bobcats "featured" the league's two lowest-scoring teams. The Bucks entered the game averaging a league-low 91.5 points, and the Bobcats were averaging 93.1 points. The Bucks also have the dubious honor of having been held under 100 points on 55 occasions this season, the most in the NBA.
--F Drew Gooden returned to action on Monday night against the Bobcats. Gooden hadn't played since Jan. 21 because of plantar fasciitis. Gooden entered the game in the first half and played 17 minutes. He had eight rebounds and two points.
--The Bucks-Bulls game at the Bradley Center on Saturday night was a sellout, thanks in part to a large contingent of Bulls fans. It marked just the third sellout for the Bucks this season. Last season, the Bucks had five sellouts.
QUOTE TO NOTE
