LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) -- The Milwaukee Bucks are in La Crosse to play the Chicago Bulls tonight in their first exhibition game.
Coach Larry Krystkowiak says that doesn't mean his players get a day off of practice.
It wasn't a light shootaround today before the game tonight.
Krystkowiak scheduled a full practice.
He says in the Bucks' last exhibition game last year, seven guys didn't play.
So it meant they had the day off.
That's why he went for a full practive and plans to spread the playing time around in tonight's game, so no one will play a lot.
After the game at the La Crosse Center, the Bucks fly to Salt Lake City to play the Utah Jazz tomorrow night.
