GRADES: Sixers never show up in embarrassing loss to Bucks



Article Summary:

The Sixers, without all-star Ben Simmons, fell victim to a Milwaukee Bucks team that seemingly couldn’t miss early and never relinquished the lead they held wire-to-wire.

The first quarter mercifully came to an end with Milwaukee leading, 40-26.

The second quarter was another disappointing effort defensively for Philadelphia. The teams entered the half with Milwaukee leading 77-60.

Philadelphia tried to make a run early in the third quarter as they closed the lead to 11, but Milwaukee pulled away as a rather quiet first half from Antetokounmpo gave way to an aggressive, two-time, reigning-MVP.

Philadelphia gave another strong push towards the end of the quarter before a 13-2 run, including eight points from Bobby Portis in the final 90 seconds, pushed Milwaukee’s lead going into the fourth quarter to 21 points, 108-87.

In the fourth, Philadelphia outscored Milwaukee 30-16, getting the game to two possessions and forcing Milwaukee to put their starters back in. All, too-little-too-late as Milwaukee took the game 124-117.

Grades from a flat and uninspired Sixers loss to a competitive Milwaukee Bucks team.
