76ers vs Bucks final score: Philadelphia drops 2nd straight at home, 105-96

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

After an impressive undefeated road trip, the Sixers returned home but went cold in the fourth quarter to lose by nine to the Bucks.

After going out on the road and winning three straight, the Philadelphia 76ers returned home on Tuesday night and lost to the Milwaukee Bucks, 105-96. The Bucks are capable of beating anyone in the league when their explosive backcourt duo of Brandon Jennings and Monta Ellis get going, and on Tuesday, it was Jennings who had the hot hand. That, combined with a miserable offensive fourth quarter for Philadelphia, led to the disappointing home loss -- their second straight at Wells Fargo Center.

Jenings hit 12-of-21 from the floor, including four three-pointers, on his way to a 33-point performance. He hit a dagger three that broke an 89-89 tie with less than three minutes remaining. The Bucks would never look back, closing out the final three minutes for a comfortable nine-point win.

The Sixers backcourt didn't exactly yield the floor to Ellis and Jennings, however, as both Jrue Holiday and Jason Richardson scored 20 or more points. Holiday led all Philly scorers with 25 points, getting consistent penetration and making 10 of his 18 attempts from the field. Richardson added 20, hitting three attempts from behind the arc. But there wasn't a whole lot of help on the offensive end of the floor, and a 13-point fourth quarter did in Doug Collins' team.

The Sixers will next host the Pistons on Wednesday night.
