After losing a hard fought game to Chicago on Sunday, the Philadelphia 76ers will take their act on the road against Milwaukee on Monday. It's been a tough stretch lately for Doug Collins' group. After losing seven of their past nine games, Phiadelphia needs to regroup in the worst way against the Milwaukee Bucks.
After tonight, the Sixers don't have a "should win" game ahead of them in the next 10 contests except for the lowly Charlotte Bobcats. It will be fight going forward, especially with the New York Knicks and Boston Celtics lurking within shouting distance in the Atlantic Division.
Philly could certainly use another solid Elton Brand effort, who scored 14 points and nabbed 13 rebounds last night. Brand has been a double-double machine as of late, recording one in each of the past three games.
Milwaukee will look to counter with Brandon Jennings, the young guard averaging 18.6 points per game. He's been on fire lately, scoring 27 and 34 points against the Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks respectively in his last two games.
It's a game the Sixers have to win before they embark on the hardest part of their schedule. The Bucks have some talent, but at 14-23 certainly aren't up to snuff.
