— The Milwaukee Bucks wrap up their woeful pre-season with a game tonight in Chicago.

The teams will meet again in Chicago on Tuesday, when the regular season kicks off.


The Bucks have gone 1-6 in the pre-season, including 1-1 in two exhausting exhibition games in China.


Milwaukee is coming off a 19-point loss in Minneapolis yesterday. The Bucks led by as many as 13 points in the first half but let Minnesota back into the game.


Bucks coach Scott Skiles says the team is showing a tendency to lose its edge at halftime and come out soft in the third quarter. He says that shows the team isnít as mentally ready as it needs to be.


Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut didnít play because of a sore left ankle. Heís expected to be ready for next weekís season opener.
