Milwaukee
Philadelphia

[PHILADELPHIA] — The Philadelphia 76ers played host to the Milwaukee Bucks last night but couldn't manage to leave much of an impact, failing to keep up with their visiting rivals and eventually succumbing in a 82-90 defeat. The loss bumps Philadelphia's record down to 28-52 on the season, while the victory gives Milwaukee a 41-39 total on the year. Disappointing from the opening tip, the 76ers did little to convince anyone that they deserved anything more than a big fat L in this one. Suffice it to say, they'll have plenty to talk about over the next few days.

On this night it was Giannis Antetokounmpo leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 20 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks and 3 steals in 40 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Bucks managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Antetokounmpo keeps producing at this rate and Milwaukee keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Philadelphia didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, T.J. McConnell did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 10 points, 2 rebounds and 10 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

At the end of the day, the homeside was beaten down in a performance that they stood little chance of winning. If there's one thing any coach will offer a team coming off of a loss like this one it's that success hinges on a better defensive output. Not only did the Bucks take advantage of Philadelphia, they managed to put forth an offensive outburst far in excess of their season average. Philadelphia knows this - as would any other NBA squad in their position, so don't be surprised if the 76ers end up running plenty of laps after this one.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the Indiana Pacers. The Bucks, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Charlotte Hornets.
