A date with the Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA is in store for the Milwaukee Bucks after getting blown out by the Philadelphia 76ers Wednesday night 130-95. The Bucks struggled to keep pace with the 76ers offense despite missing Joel Embiid and J.J. Reddick. Instead it was a banner night for the 76ers bench with four players reaching double figures including Justin Anderson’s game-leading 25 points. Jabari Parker matched that coming off the bench with the Bucks with Malcolm Brogdon adding 13 points and Giannis Antetokounmpo and Tony Snell each pitching in 10. A Heat win dropped the Bucks to the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, which begins Sunday when they face the second seeded Boston Celtics at noon.
