Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 24 points in Monday’s victory over the Sixers. Tony Snell had 18 of his season-high 21 in the first half and the Bucks never trailed in a 112-98 victory.
Malcolm Brogdon and Khris Middleton both added 13 points each for the Bucks, who won their third consecutive game to stay 1 ½ games back of Detroit for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race.
Jason Kidd really liked what he saw on Monday, “When the ball is moving like that and guys are making shots, it’s fun to watch.” “Being aggressive, sharing the ball, playing defense at the right time of the year,” he said. “Our playoff season has started now. It’s great they all believe they can make this push and it’s going to take all of us. Everybody has to chip in and it starts at the defensive end.”
The Milwaukee Bucks had lost both other meetings to the Sixers, including a 114-109 loss in Milwaukee on Jan. 25
The Bucks look to win four in a row as they take on the New York Knicks Wednesday night.
