Monday January 29, the Philadelphia 76ers arrives at BMO Harris Bradley Center to complete the second night of a back to back series versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Philly enter following a loss to the OKC Thunder. In an odd coincidence the Bucks also are on a back to back set having beaten the Bulls Sunday.
Last season, the squads split their four games, but the Bucks won the first meeting this season 116-94. The Bucks holds the all-time record having bested the 76ers 105 of their 204 matches.
For the first time this season Joel Embiid will play in the second game of a back to back set. Facing the other young squad expected to make noise in the East and super star Giannis Antetokounmpo it will be interesting to see if Embiid learned anything in the loss to Russell Westbrook’s Thunder.
The big man’s post game actions raise this question as he trolled Westbrook on Twitter following the loss. Interesting choice given the 76ers has lost 18 in a row to the Thunder.
Still, the big man is a generational talent who has combined with leading Rookie of the Year candidate Ben Simmons to record nine wins in the Sixers last 12 games.
During the 9-3 stretch Embiid played in all but one game and is averaging 22.9 points, 10.5 rebounds, 3 assists and shooting 30 percent from deep ( 10 of 33).
Jerryd Bayless (wrist) has missed five games, but expected to return for this match. JJ Redick (leg), Furkan Korkmaz (foot) and Markelle Fultz (shoulder) all remain out.
Since Milwaukee released Jason Kidd they have won three in a row. The offense has been rolling, but hasn’t been tested by a top defense with wins coming against the Suns, Nets and Bulls.
In the Sixers the Bucks will face the league’s fourth ranked defensive squad (102.9) who’ve improved in January (99.5). That said, since Kidd’s dismissal the Bucks have been the fifth ranked offense (114.7) and third ranked defense (96.9).
Antetokounmpo missed two games recently to rest his sore knee. Since returning, in two games he’s scored 41 and 27 points respectively and produced averages of 34 points, 11 rebounds and 7.5 assists.
Malcolm Brogdon (calf) missed the past two games and is questionable for the Sixers game. Jabari Parker is nearing a return from his second ACL injury expecting to make his 2018 debut shortly before the All-Star Break. Mirza Teletovic (knee) is out until March.

This game has major implications to the playoff seeding which may be why Embiid is considering playing on consecutive nights. Should the Sixers win they swap places with the Bucks based on win percentage.
Conversely, Milwaukee can you this game as a further litmus test to the post Kidd era.
