VS. MILWAUKEE BUCKS
* WHEN: Tonight, 7:30.
* WHERE: Capital Centre.
* TV: Home Team Sports.
* RADIO: WTOP-AM (1500) and WINX-AM (1600).
* OUTLOOK: The Bullets (29-49) are on a two-game winning streak, but if they want it to continue, they had better hope Pervis Ellison avoids the refs' whistles. Ellison, who has been a major part of the Bullets' offense and defense the past month, was seldom seen Sunday in the Bullets' 101-96 victory over the Miami Heat. Early foul trouble kept him on the bench much of the afternoon.
The Bucks, 47-32 and in third place in the NBA's Central Division, aren't the Heat (23-55). The Bullets will need more than backup center Greg Foster to cope. Foster, the 6-foot-11 rookie center from Texas-El Paso, has provided substantial relief off the bench, but as Bullets coach Wes Unseld has said, "Greg does some good things. The problem is the things I want him to do are the things he does well, but they are the things he doesn't like to do. The things he doesn't do well are the things he likes to do. Until we have a meeting of the minds and I find out who wins, he'll be a question mark."
Milwaukee comes into tonight's game off last night's 103-94 loss to Chicago. The Bullets will again be without Bernard King (back strain) and Charles Jones (sore groin).
