ST. FRANCIS, Wis. -- Athletes often try to play off the first few games against their former teams as just another game. Bucks guard J.J. Redick didn't use the clich when talking about facing the Orlando Magic on Sunday at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, instead he's more focused on getting his current team back on track and snapping Milwaukee's three-game losing streak.
