The 76ers beat the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night 93-88. The 76ers outscored the Bucks 26-15 in the fourth quarter, to comeback and win the second game with new coach Tony DiLeo at the helm.
The win can be attributed to the Sixers' bench, as Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Marreese Speights all scored in double figures. Williams led all scorers with 25 points on 9 of 17 shooting. Andre Miller finished with 19, Speights added 12, and Young scored 10.
Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand had just four points each. They also each had six rebounds and Iggy added seven assists. It was another disappointing outing for Iguodala this season. He shot 2 of 14 from the floor.
Charlie Bell and Luke Ridnour led the way for the Bucks with 14 points apiece. Luc Richard Mbah a Moute added 13 points and Richard Jefferson finished with 11. The Bucks fell to 11-16 on the season. The Bucks shot just 13.3% from behind the arc, including an 0 for 4 performance by Michael Redd who finished with just six points.
This marks the second consecutive win for the 76ers to improve their record to 11-14. Granted both the wins have come against inferior teams in the Bucks and the Washington Wizards, they are still wins nonetheless. Hopefully the 76ers will continue to ride the energy a new coach brings to a franchise.
