The Milwaukee Bucks (39-30) entertain the Philadelphia 76ers(24-47) tonight at the Bradley Center. Milwaukee is looking for their 9th straight victory on their home floor.
The Bucks and 76ers are heading in completely opposite directions at the moment. As Milwaukee has won 15 of their last 17 games, Philly comes in losing 13 of their last 15 games. Bucks forward Kurt Thomas says the Bucks are playing with a lot of confidence:
The two teams have split the season series thus far at 1-1. Milwaukee won the most recent meeting on January 27th 91-88 at the Bradley Center. Philadelphia took the first meeting which was the season opener back on November 30th 99-86. The season series will come to an end Friday April 9th in Philly.
The Bucks need three more wins this season to clinch an above .500 season for the first time since the 2002-2003 campaign. Tonight’s tip-off is set for 7:00.
