Michael Redd addressed the media for the first time since learning that he torn the ligaments in the same knee he injured last year. He is headed back home to Milwaukee tonight and will have surgery sometime in February. He was obviously saddened by the injury and had no idea why it happened. He had his weight on it and went to make what he call a non-dynamic move when he felt it pop. He said it wasn't as painful as last year so he was hopeful it wasn't as bad.

Redd said he would work hard again this summer and rehab the knee once again

Coaches Notes:

  • Coach Skiles expresssed his sympathy for Michael Redd and talked about how hard he had worked to come back
  • The Bucks will start Charlie Bell and play Jennings and Ridnour together at times. Jodie Meeks will also get more minutes
  • Skiles called Steve Nash the MVP of the league right now
  • Audio: Skiles pregame 011110
  • Coach Gentry didn't care that the Bucks haven't won in Phoenix since 1987. He said unless those sames guys were playing tonight that it didn't matter
  • He's impressed with Jennings quickness which he compared to Tony Parker and Leandro Barbosa
  • Gentry said Jennings is confident to the point of cocky but that in this league you have to be cocky. He said that Jennings respects guys but doesn't fear them
  • He emphasized that he was the only player to score 55 points this year and when asked about that coming on the Warriors pointed out that no one else has scored 55 on them
  • The Suns are concerned about Ilyasova's range so Grant Hill will start on him and Amare will defend Luc Mbah a Moute
  • This game will have a lot of cross matches Bogut will cover Amare who will cover Mbah a Moute who will cover Hill who will cover Ilyasova who will cover Frye who will cover Bogut
