The Philadelphia 76ers continue to play well in the home stretch of the regular season before the start of the 2012 NBA Playoffs. On Tuesday night they beat the Milwaukee Bucks 90-85 on the road for their fourth straight win in their five-game road stand to close the season.
Evan Turner scored a career high 29 points in the win as the Sixers rested Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young. Jodie Meeks also had a nice game, scoring 27 with nine points coming off 3-pointers. Both players shot sub-50 percent from the floor, however, and as a team the Sixers went just 35.6 percent from the field.
Luckily, the Bucks were not prepared to put up any sort of fight. Having already been eliminated from the playoffs, Milwaukee sat Monta Ellis, Drew Gooden, Ersan Ilyasova and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute for the game. Brandon Jennings led the team with 19 points and six assists. As team, the Bucks shot just 44.4 percent from the floor, and turned the ball over 21 times to 11 for the Sixers.
