The Milwaukee Bucks are in a rut, dropping their fourth straight game to the 76ers in Philadelphia Wednesday night 100-92. Philly had six players in double figures as they closed to within six and a half games of Milwaukee for the final playoff spot in the east. Monta Ellis led the Bucks with 29 and Ersan Ilyasova added 13 points and 18 rebounds. Brandon Jennings was held scoreless for the first time in his career and he rode the bench in the fourth quarter. After the game, Jennings expressed his disappointment, "I don't see any All-Stars in this locker room," he said. Milwaukee drops to 34-36 on the season and they are now two and a half games behind Boston from the number 7 poisition in the east. If they can't catch the Celtics, the Bucks would meet the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs. The Bucks return home Thursday night to host the Los Angeles Lakers, trying to hang on to the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
