The fact that the Philadelphia 76ers lost on Thursday night should really come as no surprise at all. They have won well under half of their games away from home this season, and they were taking on the Milwaukee Bucks. Most teams can’t do anything against them, even at home, so it only made sense that the Bucks would win here.
They did so by a score of 112-101, getting 36 points from Giannis Antetokounmpo (and 20 rebounds) as he stacked up a monstrous double-double. Tobias Harris put up 25 for the struggling Sixers, with all of those points coming from the field as he didn’t shoot a single free throw. They are now 9-19 on the road, still needing improvement badly.
