76ers Vs. Buck Final Score: Struggles Continue As Sixers Fall 97-93 On The Road

With a tough 10-game stretch upcoming, Monday night's game against the 15-23 Milwaukee Bucks should have served as confidence booster. The Philadelphia 76ers faded in the second half coming off a hard-fought loss to the Chicago Bulls, however, going on to lose 97-93 at the Bradley Center.

The Sixers went on 4:13 drought without a point stretching from the end of the third period into the beginning of the fourth. The Bucks went on a tear in the span, turning a 71-65 deficit into an 80-71 lead. Milwaukee made three 3-pointers during the stretch, including two by Brandon Jennings who finished with a game-high 33 points and seven assists.

Head coach Doug Collins inserted Nikola Vucevic and Evan Turner into the starting a lineup in hopes of sparking a turnaround for his Sixers, now losers of eight of their last 10 games. Neither was able to do much Monday, however. Vucevic had six points and three rebounds in 17 minutes on the court. Turner, meanwhile, was 1-for-12 from the floor for two points, though he was valuable in picking up 12 rebounds.

Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala were the only effective offensive weapons on the night. Williams scored 26 points, 11 of which came off of free throws. He went just 7-for-17 shooting, however, and 1-for-6 from beyond the 3-point arc. Iguodala scored 16 on 6-for-9 shooting, going 3-for-3 from long range.
