Bucks Hope Home-Cooking Cures Playoff Problems

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks are certainly happy to be back home. Brandon Jennings hopes to benefit the most as Milwaukee tries to dig out of its 0-2 hole against Atlanta.

The rookie point guard was phenomenal in Game 1 with 34 points, then crashed back down in Game 2 with nine points on 3 of 15 shooting from the field.

Jennings says Game 3 on Saturday will be different because the Bucks will be at the Bradley Center and focused. Jennings says they'll spend the off days trying to figure out how to stop Joe Johnson.

Atlanta's Josh Smith and Al Horford have also had big games, and Bucks coach Scott Skiles says his team has given up way too many uncharacteristic offensive rebounds and easy buckets.
