The Milwaukee Bucks (39-31) shot just over 40% from the field Wednesday night as they fell to the Philadelphia 76ers (25-37) 101-86 at the Bradley Center. The loss snaps the Bucks eight-game home winning-streak.
Jerry Stackhouse had 15-points off the bench to lead Milwaukee. The Bucks five starters combined for only 39 points on the night led by Brandon Jennings with 12 and Carlos Delfino with 10. Milwaukee got out to another slow start and it finally caught up to them according Head Coach Scott Skiles:
The 76ers came into the game losing 13 of their last 15 while the Bucks were riding high notching wins in 15 of their previous 17 match-ups. Veteran Jerry Stackhouse knows good teams in the NBA win the games they should:
Milwaukee’s magic number to clinch a playoff spot remains at seven (combination of Bucks wins and Chicago losses). The Miami Heat visit the Bradley Center Friday night for a 7:30 tip.
