The Celtics are looking to snap a two-game losing streak against the Bucks, who have registered two of their three wins over Boston. On Saturday, the Bucks dominated the final three quarters en route to a 92-85 win. Brandon Knight, who had hit three 3-pointers the entire season, hit three Saturday and O.J. Mayo was also key with 22 points on 9-for-14 shooting.

Courtney Lee did not play in Saturday's game with a sore left knee but is a game-time decision tonight.

Pregame notes:

• Lee participated in practice Monday and said the knee feels a lot better after missing the past two games. MarShon Brooks and Keith Bogans saw action Saturday in Lee's absence.

• The Bucks will be without Caron Butler (sore knee) and Ersan Ilyasova (hamstring) again tonight. Henson and Udoh were pressed into starting duty.

• Rajon Rondo worked out lightly before the game and is apparently getting close. He has been participating in practice but has not been cleared for five-on-five contact.

• The Celtics have Wednesday and Thursday's off before a Friday matchup with the Denver Nuggets. The Celtics then hit New York for games at the Knicks on Sunday and Nets on Tuesday. Former Celtics assistant coach Lawrence Frank was relieved of his duties as bench assistant coach for Brooklyn. He will work away from the team.
