Milwaukee Bucks vs. Philadelphia 76ers Game Thread (Nov. 12)

The Milwaukee Bucks (3-2) and the Philadelphia 76ers (4-2) will meet on Monday night at 6 p.m. CT. The Bucks are coming off a disappointing 96-92 loss to the Celtics, while the Sixers are riding a three-game winning streak.


Jrue Holiday and the Philadelphia 76ers are playing without Andrew Bynum, but they have strung together three straight wins and could be finding their groove. Alternatively, Brandon Jennings and the Bucks have suffered drop off ever since their terrific start to the season. On Monday, the two squads meet in Philadelphia (6 p.m. CT, FSN-WI) and the matchup between Holiday and Jennings should be the one to watch.

Holiday is off to a good start in 2012 after cashing in with a four-year, $41 million extension, as he is posting career-high numbers in a variety of categories through six games. The young floor general from UCLA holds new per game highs (and team highs) of 18.2 points and 9.5 assists. He's also scoring more efficiently (55.6 TS%) and taking more shots (25.3% Usage) than ever before. Meanwhile, Jennings is posting a career-high in assists per game (8.6), but he's on pace for his lowest marks in points per game (13.8), True Shooting (45.3%) and Usage (23.0%).
