MILWAUKEE -- Scott Skiles is not one to sit back and watch his team struggle, waiting for things to get better on their own.
In his fifth season in Milwaukee, the Bucks coach is going to make changes until he finds a winning solution. It's what he's done his entire coaching career, and that's certainly not going to change now.
Milwaukee has used five different starting lineups in its past 10 games. Some players have gone from starting to out of the mix completely, as Skiles and the 10-9 Bucks search for a rotation that will click. Guards Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis have started every game, but there has been change at every other position in the starting lineup. Milwaukee started the season 6-2 but is 4-7 since.
"When you lose four out of five and things are slipping, you have to do something, you have to take action," Skiles said. " At some point, it is time to mix it up and see if you can't find something else that is working."

MILWAUKEE -- Drew Gooden has stayed ready for his number to be called.
To his credit, many in his situation wouldn't have been. Lost in the shuffle with an abundance of big men, his first minutes of the season came in Milwaukee's 18th game and that eight-minute stretch occurred when the Bucks had victory well in hand.
Gooden has admitted it hasn't been easy, but he...
When Larry Sanders said he wanted to start a block party this season, he wasn't messing around.
After a four block performance Sunday in Brooklyn, Sanders is now the NBA's leader in blocked shots per game at 3.11, passing Oklahoma City's Serge Ibaka.
In his last six games, Sanders has 32 blocked shots (5.3 per game), the same number Milwaukee's opponents have blocked...

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks won ugly' in a matchup of short-handed teams -- and that's just fine with Brandon Jennings.
Jennings scored 19 points, Monta Ellis had 17 points and 11 assists and the Bucks beat the Sacramento Kings 98-85 on Wednesday night for their third straight win.
"It was an ugly game," Jennings said. "It seemed like the Sacramento...
Monta Ellis is shooting just 38.9 percent this season.
MILWAUKEE -- It wasn't pretty, but considering the circumstances, the Milwaukee Bucks aren't complaining about their 98-85 victory over Sacramento Wednesday night at the BMO Harris Bradley Center. Already playing without key reserves Mike Dunleavy Jr. (bruised knee) and Beno Udrih (sprained ankle), a sprained ankle kept starting center Joel Pryzbilla off the court and Larry...
Brandon Jennings scored 19 points, Monta Ellis had 17 points and 11 assists and the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Sacramento Kings 98-85 on Wednesday night.
Ersan Ilyasova added 16 points and a season-high 14 rebounds, and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute scored a season-high 17 points in his first start of the season for Milwaukee (11-9), which has its best 20-game start since 2005-06.
With another strong offensive performance from Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis, the Milwaukee Bucks should have a good chance to match their longest winning streak of the season Wednesday night.
The backcourt duo can help the Bucks to a third consecutive victory as they try to avoid a third straight loss to the visiting Sacramento Kings.
Jennings scored 26 points and Ellis added...
NEW YORK - The game was only four minutes old Sunday night, but it looked as if the Brooklyn Nets were going to run the Milwaukee Bucks right out of the Barclays Center. The Nets, who have been struggling of late, jumped out to an 11-2 lead, doing a little bit of everything to secure that lead. It caused Bucks head coach Scott Skiles to call a timeout and address his team. ...
