TEAMS: Bucks (9-9) vs. Brooklyn Nets (11-7).

WHEN: 5 p.m. Sunday.

WHERE: Barclays Center.

BROADCASTS: TV - None. Radio - AM-1250.

ABOUT THE NETS: Brooklyn has lost three straight games, falling to Miami, Oklahoma City and Golden State. The Nets lost at home to the Warriors, 109-102, Friday despite a season-high 32 points from guard Joe Johnson. Center Brook Lopez has missed the last four games with a sprained right foot and will be re-evaluated Sunday. He was leading Brooklyn in scoring at 18.5 points per game and also averaging 2.5 blocks. The Nets are taking a cautious approach with Lopez, who injured the same foot that he hurt last season, when he missed all but five games of the team's final season in New Jersey. Former Wizards big man Andray Blatche has stepped into the starting center role and contributed 22 points and 15 rebounds against the Warriors but struggled to defend David Lee, who had 30 points. The Nets will try to use their bigger guards - Johnson and Deron Williams - to post up against the Bucks' Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings.

Solid win and a huge game out of Brandon and Monta, but I'm still stunned that we let a 27 point lead evaporate to only an 8 point edge toward the end. Brooklyn's a tough squad, but we can't be letting them run like that.

They've had a hard time putting together 4 consistent quarters every game for a while now, though.

It is
