— Michael Redd was happy to face former teammate Ray Allen.

Redd scored 19, leading the Milwaukee Bucks to a 106-91 victory Tuesday night over Allen and the Seattle SuperSonics.

"We practiced against each other for several years, so it was great to see him tonight and get to play against him," said Redd, who has taken over Allen's former shooting-guard spot. "He's a great player and great friend."

It was the second time Allen had played in Milwaukee since being traded Feb. 20, 2003, with Ronald Murray to Seattle for Gary Payton and Desmond Mason. In his first trip back to Milwaukee last season, Allen scored 16, shooting only 4-for-16 from the field.
