Through 2 Quarters

Down nine at the end of last quarter, the Milwaukee Bucks have now snagged the lead. They have emerged as the frontrunner at halftime and are ahead of the Philadelphia 76ers 66-58. Nobody has stood out from the pack for the Bucks offensively yet.

Milwaukee and Philadelphia have certainly played as if they’re avenging a defeat, because they are. Either team could still leave here with a redeeming victory, so expect a scrappy second half.

Who’s Playing

Milwaukee @ Philadelphia

Current Records: Milwaukee 4-6; Philadelphia 8-3

What to Know

The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t won a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks since Dec. 25 of 2019, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Tuesday. The 76ers are getting right back to it as they host Milwaukee at 7:30 p.m. ET Nov. 9 at Wells Fargo Center. While the odds are definitely not in Philadelphia’s favor, at least they’ll be on their home court in front of their own fans.

Philadelphia came up short against the New York Knicks on Monday, falling 103-96. Philadelphia’s loss came about despite a quality game from center Andre Drummond, who posted a double-double on 25 boards and 14 points. Drummond had some trouble finding his footing against the Chicago Bulls this past Saturday, so this was a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, Milwaukee came up short against the Washington Wizards on Sunday, falling 101-94. Point guard George Hill had a rough evening: he finished with only six points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.

Philadelphia took a serious blow against the Bucks when the two teams previously met in April, falling 132-94. Maybe the 76ers will have more luck at home instead of on the road? Watch the game and check back on CBS Sports for all the details.
