Philly has given up 110-plus points in each of last 11 games, all losses. The 76ers have allowed 130-plus points four times.

This is the game Scott Williams should have been suspended for.
Mayo 6 for 8, correction. On three-point attempts.
Ilyasova has 20, Mayo 19 and Middleton and Knight 15 apiece.
Mayo ends third quarter with a 4-point play as he goes 6 for 6 from 3-point range. Bucks 106, 76ers 76.
Do you think anyone will ever tell Sidney Moncrief he's pronouncing Ramon Sessions' name wrong? Only 27 games left.

Young stays in the game.
Young comes up limping after a basket by Ilyasova. Young has 16 points in quarter.
One very enthralled 76ers fan is sound asleep in first row under the basket. Plus the music in arena is fairly loud.
Wroten with a steal and dunk and now Carter-Williams at the FT line after a Bucks turnover. Ruled a clear-path foul on Ilyasova.
The Sixer D has been atrocious, but so far it hasn't been "Zaza Pachulia making shots inside the restricted area" atrocious. Still time tho.
Mayo now 5 for 5 on 3s. Philly has gone to pressure but Bucks still scoring. Bucks lead 92-66 with 5:07 left in third.
Bucks lead 82-55 and Drew calls a timeout after 6-0 run by 76ers.

Bucks have only two victories by double digits this season: 10-point win over 76ers at home in Dec. and 15-point margin over Lakers in L.A.
Bucks set a new high for points in a half this season and lead 76ers, 73-44 at halftime. Really.
Bucks just scored 43 points in second quarter. Sixers have 44 points total (both quarters included).
Bucks now on pace to win by 56.

Middleton not happy when he was pulled from game just now and had brief exchange with Drew.

Ilyasova 3 for 3 so far and Bucks lead 17-14 halfway through the first.
Plenty of good seats available at Wells Fargo Center.
Tony Wroten, normally Philly's sixth man, is starting tonight with Michael Carter-Williams in backcourt.
"The obvious is assessing his goals at this stage of his career," Brown said.
Granger could seek buyout of his contract after being acquired in deal that sent Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen to Pacers.
Brown said an announcement likely in next 24 hours "on what direction our situation with Danny will go."
Tonight's Bucks-76ers game could be flat-out ugly. A Bucks' loss would virtually seal the deal for worst record this season.
Caron Butler (ankle pain) is out but Nate Wolters (ankle sprain) will start at PG for Bucks, according to coach Larry Drew.
My ballot went like this: Lilly, McBride, Sanneh, Victor Nogueira. If you ever saw Nogueira play for the Wave, you know he is overlooked.
Both Lilly and McBride are first-ballot inductees. One who is deserving is former UWM and D.C. United and U.S. standout Tony Sanneh.
Lilly played in 5 World Cups and is a 2-time Olympic gold medalist. She played 352 games for the U.S. from 1987 to 2010, an amazing record.
All are well-deserving choices. Bradley coached the U.S. 2010 World Cup team and coached the Chicago Fire from 1998 to 2002.
Kristine Lilly and Brian McBride have been elected to the National Soccer Hall of Fame and coach Bob Bradley elected on Builder Ballot.
Quality piece in SI by Jeff Benedict on Duke forward - and future Buck? - Jabari Parker.
Brandon Knight's progress is nothing short of amazing: in last 12 G, he is ave. 20.8 pts, 6.5 assts, 2.5 TOs. And he's just 23.
Hearing Charlie Villanueva, if he reaches buyout with Pistons, wouldn't mind latching on with Rockets.
Bucks coach Larry Drew said Nate Wolters (ankle) is OK and will play tonight vs. 76ers. Caron Butler (ankle) also should be a go.
Also interesting: Knight/Wolters have been effective relative to other lineups (-3.8 pts/100...good for Bucks), but it's also driven by D.
Wolters has a better on/off split than Knight this year, but the interesting thing is that it's completely driven by defensive end.
Ephesians 3:16-19 Gudnite
Knight may well need to be playing next to another playmaker for his team to succeed, but it's not like he's just a SG next to Wolters.
Meanwhile, Knight's ranked relatively lower in spot-ups this season. Good off screens, but only 4% of plays.
For all the talk about Brandon Knight being better "off ball," he's been quite good in isos and greatly improved in P&R scoring.
Sorry not sorry!!! Flood time
Another amazing discussion!!! Want to say thanks for the interactions. Last discussion next Sunday!!!
Brandon Knight in the month of February: 8 games, 22.4 ppg, 6.9 apg, 3.1 rpg, 2.4 to, 52.4% true shooting.
Eastbound & Down is pure comedy lol .. Kenny Powers!
