Embiid's 2nd Triple-Double Not Enough in Loss to Bucks | Philadelphia 76ers

  • The Sixers will sign Greg Monroe. What could he add to a playoff run

George Hill #3 and Giannis Antetokounmpo #34 of the Milwaukee Bucks celebrates after the game against the Philadelphia 76ers on April 4, 2019 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania NOTE TO USER: User expressly acknowledges and agrees that, by downloading and/or using this Photograph, user is consenting to the terms and conditions of the Getty Images License Agreement. If the 76ers and Bucks were to matchup in the playoffs, it would surely be an entertaining series.

The Philadelphia 76ers and the Milwaukee Bucks are two teams that basketball fans feel can make it out of the Eastern Conference and compete in the NBA Finals. After catching the ball, Bledsoe retaliated by firing the ball directly into Embiid's chest, which then caused multiple members of each team to get into it near midcourt.

Scott and Embiid were issued technical fouls and Bledsoe, the Bucks' third-leading scorer, was assessed a pair of technicals, resulting in his disqualification.

Antetokounmpo continued his string of big games against the 76ers, dropping 45 points, 13 rebounds, six assists and five blocks.

To say the former Georgetown star has bounced around over the last two seasons would be a huge understatement when taking into consideration since Monroe has seen stints with the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, Boston Celtics, and Toronto Raptors.

"I'm always going to ride, that's just how I am whether it was right or wrong", said Scott. But the Bucks, behind the offense and defense of Antetokounmpo, whittled away at the deficit.


In the fourth quarter, Antetokounmpo made a free throw to cap a 6-0 run with 6:27 left to tie it 104-104.

"He's been doing it all for us this whole season", Middleton said.

After Redick missed a 3-pointer, Hill scored again from close range off an assist from Antetokounmpo to give Milwaukee a 121-119 lead with 1:02 left.

"We struggled guarding them", 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "Hopefully we can keep getting better and we can reach our goal - that is, to win the championship".

Elsewhere, DeMarcus Cousins scored 21 points as the Golden State Warriors boosted their chances of securing the top seed in the Western Conference by clobbering the Los Angeles Lakers 108-90.
