Beer might have made Milwaukee famous, but the biggest thing brewing in town right now is the Bucks' unbeaten streak at home. Milwaukee is 18-0 at the Bradley Center and in first place in the Central Division with a 25-9 mark. That's almost as surprising as the cast of characters who have accomplished the feat. When you think of players on division-leading teams, names such as Jack Sikma, Danny Schayes, Brad Lohaus and Frank Brickowski don't automatically come to mind. Yet that who's been helping the Bucks this season.

Midseason trades require a multitude of adjustments for an NBA player. New teammates, new coaches and new philosophies must all be adapted to and mastered. And then there are those pesky pronouns. "A lot of things are different," Milwaukee Bucks guard Michael Carter-Williams said Friday after a shootaround at Madison Square Garden. "The dynamic of the team is different. I think we have a few more vet guys than Philly does. It's just a different coaching staff. Not to say one is better than the other.

Greg Foster's assistant-coaching stint with the 76ers was short-lived. The 45-year-old left the franchise after one season for a better opportunity as the second assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to several sources. Foster was one of the Sixers' player development coaches. The former NBA center also worked with the team's big men. Foster and new Bucks coach Jason Kidd are close friends from Oakland. Foster came to the Sixers in September after spending the previous three seasons at his alma mater, the University of Texas at El Paso.

If you haven't noticed, Nerlens Noel and Ish Smith have developed into an exciting tandem for the 76ers. Their latest teamwork was on display in a 113-111 overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday at the Wells Fargo Center. Noel was on the receiving end of Smith's three assists. The highlight came when Smith, the Sixers' point guard , found the standout rookie big man for a one-handed alley-oop dunk with 3 minutes, 45 seconds remaining in the first half. "I love Ish," said Noel, who finished with 19 points and 14 rebounds.

Former Temple and Engineering and Science point guard Lynn Greer is trading one guaranteed year in the NBA for two more lucrative ones in the Euroleague. Greer, who had one guaranteed season left with the Milwaukee Bucks, has opted to sign a two-year guaranteed deal with Greece's Olympiacos. Greer would have been paid $770,610 this season in Milwaukee. He will be making close to $7 million over the next two years in Greece, according to a source. In his only season in Milwaukee, Greer, who will turn 28 next month, averaged 4.1 points and 10.5 minutes in 41 games.

Derrick Rose scored 32 points in the Chicago Bulls' 104-99 win Monday night over the visiting Knicks, handing New York its sixth straight loss. Rose shot 12 of 29 from the floor and had six rebounds and seven assists as the Bulls got their 10th win in 11 games. Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 21 points and Amar'e Stoudemire added 20, but the two combined for just seven points in the fourth quarter as the Bulls pulled away. Jeremy Lin had 15 points and eight assists for New York, but shot just 4 of 11 from the floor and had little luck stopping Rose.

"It's clear to me that I won't be back with the Milwaukee Bucks," Nelson said in remarks published by the Milwaukee Journal yesterday. "I don't know where I'm going to end up.

Dirk Nowitzki is not expected to play in tonight's Game 6 of the Western Conference finals, Dallas coach Don Nelson said yesterday. "I'd say very doubtful is the way we have to approach it, but let's still wait and see," Nelson said. "If he can't play his normal rotation, I don't think he should play. " Nowitzki said he planned to rest his sprained left knee until a pregame shootaround. The San Antonio Spurs lead the series by 3-2 and can advance to the NBA Finals with a victory tonight (9 o'clock, TNT)

Mike Dunleavy, completing a fourth losing season as coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, disputed a broadcast report yesterday that he will be fired after the season. "It's not true. I'm still the coach. I'm still here," Dunleavy said after the Bucks' 111-103 road victory over the Charlotte Hornets. The team is 25-55 this season. Milwaukee station WITI-TV, quoting an unidentified source, said Dunleavy had been told he will be dismissed, and the announcement could come Monday. "I'm still the coach and I'll be the coach until I hear otherwise from Senator Kohl," Dunleavy said, referring to Wisconsin Sen. Herb Kohl, the Bucks' owner.

Sources said that is why Jordan is pursuing the purchase of the Bucks from Sen. Herb Kohl, D-Wis.

On this day, the basketball game was far from important. The 76ers introduced Bryan Colangelo as their new president of basketball operations Sunday before their matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center. At the conclusion of the first quarter, the Sixers honored Philadelphia native and retiring NBA referee Joey Crawford. Allen Iverson was presented with an honorary resolution from the city at halftime. And the NCAA champion Villanova basketball team was honored at the end of the third quarter.

MIAMI - The 76ers suffered their 11th straight loss Friday. Though it came without Twin Towers Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, it's probably time to get concerned as the team closes out the season. That's because there's a legitimate chance the Sixers (8-54) won't win three more games this season. On the surface that sounds insane, considering 20 games are left on the schedule. One would think it would be easy to stumble upon four wins during that season-ending stretch, no matter how bad the team is. Teams bound for the postseason have been known to rest players to reenergize for the playoffs.

MILWAUKEE - One would assume that T.J. McConnell is making it hard for the 76ers to replace him. The undrafted rookie point guard was only supposed to contribute off the bench until the team's more established point guards got healthy. But McConnell was elevated to starter on Wednesday, right before a 91-87 setback to the Milwaukee Bucks, and he has given the team plenty to think about. Does he keep his starting position? Or will he slide to the third spot once Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten return from rehabilitating right knee injuries?

MILWAUKEE - This was a matchup full of story lines. The 76ers were facing their former teammate in Milwaukee Bucks point guard Michael Carter-Williams - or so they thought. The matchup Wednesday night marked Bucks power forward Jabari Parker's return to the court after he suffered a torn left knee ligament in December. And it was the first career start for the Sixers' undrafted rookie point guard, T.J. McConnell. In the end, the Bucks escaped with a 91-87 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center.

MILWAUKEE - When you're a team constantly looking for answers and more and more questions keep piling up, nothing is a given. T.J. McConnell's first words when he was invited to participate on the 76ers' summer league team revolved around his hopes to just make the team. In a few short months, he's gone from hopeful to probable to contributor to starter. And an effective one at that. Coach Brett Brown gave the 6-1 guard the start against the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, a couple of days after the Arizona product dealt 12 assists and had no turnovers in 23 minutes against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

THERE WASN'T a lot of difference between last season's versions of the Milwaukee Bucks and the 76ers. Both rosters were mixed with youngsters and veterans. Milwaukee, though, was hampered by injuries, while the Sixers dealt their most experienced players, eventually giving them the youngest roster in the history of the NBA. Not much has changed for the Sixers this season, as they've won only 18 games going into tonight's finale against the Miami Heat. They are still painfully young and their record has them stuck near the basement of the league.

Michael Carter-Williams received one of the best receptions of his NBA career on Monday night. He then promptly turned in probably his most gratifying performance this season. Carter-Williams scored a game-high 30 points to go with five assists, five rebounds, three steals and a block against his former team as the Milwaukee Bucks beat the 76ers, 107-97. The victory came in Carter-Williams' first return to Wells Fargo Center since his trade on Feb. 19. There were some scattered boos.

THERE IS NO animosity - or if there is, Michael Carter-Williams hides it very well. He didn't appear to have an agenda in his first game back in Philadelphia after being dealt to the Milwaukee Bucks at the trade deadline in a move that shocked most. He appears grateful for all he learned and accomplished while here, which included last season's rookie of the year award. Still, the comfort level wasn't at its highest as he met with former teammates and coaches before last night's game.

IT IS KIND of ironic that when Michael Carter-Williams returns to Philadelphia tonight to face the team that he won the rookie of the year award with last season, the 76ers might not have a point guard available to play. Ish Smith, the team's only lead guard on the roster due to the season-ending foot injury to Isaiah Canaan, missed Saturday's game against Chicago with a groin strain and is a game-time decision against the visiting Milwaukee Bucks. What a difference a year makes.
