Similarly, the visiting Bucks are also below .500 on the year, entering today's game with a 2-8 record. This game has a start time of 7:00 pm EST and it will be covered by CSN-PHI.
The 76ers are regrouping after their loss to the Raptors, 108-98. Spencer Hawes stuck out for Philadelphia, recording 28 points and 10 rebounds to earn his eighth double-double of the year. Meanwhile, the Bucks are feeling some disappointment after the 91-82 loss against the Portland Trail Blazers. Luke Ridnour had a team-high 13 points.
It will be a matchup of contrasting styles, as the fast-breaking 76ers (ranked first in the league in possessions per game) take on the slow-paced Bucks (28th). Moreover, foul-shooting opportunities could prove to be quite rare for the Bucks. They are 27th in the league in FTA rate (23.3), while the 76ers are among the league's least foul-prone teams (allowing a rate of just 23.6, ranking fifth in the NBA).
