Playing in Milwaukee always scary for Caron Butler
Racine native Caron Butler likes to come home, don't get him wrong.
But playing against the Bucks in Milwaukee has been a nightmare for the Los Angeles Clippers forward. Butler will try again when the Clippers, winners of eight straight games, meet the Bucks, winners of four in a row, on Saturday night.
He has been injured three times at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, including suffering a ruptured right patella tendon in a game on Jan. 1, 2011, when he was with the Dallas Mavericks. He missed the rest of the season and the Mavericks' run to the NBA championship.
"I'm going to pray in all type of different languages and ways before I step on the court, because the last three times I've been here I've had some crazy luck," Butler said after the Clippers' shootaround at Marquette's Al McGuire Center.
"I need a voodoo doctor and everything out there."
