The Milwaukee Bucks will try to end a four-game losing streak against the Sacramento Kings when the teams meet at the Bradley Center.

Milwaukee has not beaten Sacramento since the 2000-01 season.

The Kings, who have the best record in the Western Conference, are 12-9 on the road, while the Bucks are an Eastern Conference-best 20-5 at home.

Michael Redd scored 25 points as the Bucks snapped a three-game losing streak with a 107-97 win over New Orleans on Saturday. The victory came 24 hours after an ugly loss at Memphis left usually mild-mannered coach Terry Porter irate.

“This is the first time we’ve had a bump in the road this season, we lost three games in a row and we seemed to lose our confidence,” Porter said after the loss. “We need to believe that we can beat teams if we go out and play the right way.”

Milwaukee has been surprisingly competitive despite not having any stars.

The Bucks have four players averaging at least 10 points, led by Redd’s 22 per game. Redd, who is shooting 36.8 percent from 3-point range, was selected as a reserve for the East in Sunday’s All-Star game.

Sacramento has won five of six and is coming off a 115-92 rout of Denver on Sunday.

Peja Stojakovic made a career-high seven 3-pointers and scored 35 points, and Mike Bibby added a career-best six 3s and finished with 30 points for the Kings.

Stojakovic shot 7-of-11 from 3-point range, and was 11-of-21 overall from the field. He is ranked third in the league in scoring, averaging 25.3 points per game.

Sacramento leads the league in scoring, averaging 104.9 points per game.
