MILWAUKEE, WI (WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks will try to go four games above .500 tonight, when they host the Philadelphia 76’ers. The Bucks are coming off a 3-and-1 road trip, which ended with a six-point victory at Portland on Saturday night.
Philadelphia continues to struggle at 17-and-24, after losing at home to San Antonio last night 90-to-85. Sixers’ point guard Jrue Holiday was held to 15 points, after he scored at least 29 in his previous three games.
Meanwhile, Bucks’ coach Jim Boylan continues to get solid production from his bench. Sixth man Mike Dunleavy averaged almost 14 points a game during the road trip – and he played at least 30 minutes in three of those four contests.
Boylan says Dunleavy has been “sensational” all season long. He has helped give Milwaukee the N-B-A’s ninth-highest-scoring bench with almost 34 points per game. They’re also fourth in rebounds with 17-and-a-half per night, and assists with almost eight-and-a-half.
