The Sixers have the unenviable task this evening of trying to bounce back from a loss to the Bulls in the first half of their home-and-road back-to-back in Milwaukee, but the Bucks are an inferior team who has been struggling lately, so the Sixers can certainly get earn a win.

Doug Collins squad is also a solid 7-3 in the second game of back-to-backs this season and  they did beat the Bucks in their only other meeting this season back in January at the Wells Fargo Center.

As for the Bucks, 11 of their 14 wins this season have come when they score 100 points or more, so if the Sixers can keep Milwaukee's scoring in check, they should be in solid shape to get back on the winning track.

The Bucks will be without Stephen Jackson who is day-to-day with a sore right hammy and Andrew Bogut who has a left ankle fracture. The Sixers are still without Spencer Hawes who at a minimum is a week away from getting back on the court.

Also of note: 2012 Miss America Laura Kaeppler will be in attendance for this evening's game to sing the National Anthem. So there's that.

8:00 start time from Milwaukee on CSN this evening.
