Dec 2, 2006 - 5:33 PM Milwaukee (5-10) at Golden State (9-7) 10:30 pm EST

OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Don Nelson will try to bring his coaching career full circle.

Nelson and the Golden State Warriors go in search of their third triumph in four tries when the struggling Milwaukee Bucks stop for a visit on Saturday.

Nelson is just one game shy from becoming the second coach in league history to win 1,200 career games behind Hall of Famer Lenny Wilkins (1,332). Nelson began his career on the bench in Milwaukee during the 1976-77 season, he remains the all-time wininngest coach in franchise history.

Monta Ellis scored 27 points and Baron Davis contributed 24 and nine assists off the bench in Wednesday's 108-106 heartbreaker to the Indiana Pacers.

Golden State hopes to have guard Jason Richardson back in the lineup after playing limited minutes with soreness in his surgically repair knee.

Sharpshooting Michael Redd scored 37 points and Mo Williams added a season-high 31 for the Bucks, who fell 112-116 at Phoenix on Friday. Milwaukee has yet to recorded consecutive wins this season.

The Warriors and Bucks split in their two-game season series last year, with each club winning on the road.

No one has shouted yet.
