The Milwaukee Bucks travel to the Wells Fargo Center to take on the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday afternoon. Here’s a Bucks vs 76ers Prediction.

Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have been well below their best lately as they've lost seven of their last 11 games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after outlasting the Timberwolves in a 112-107 road win on Friday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 33 points, 13 rebounds and five assists on nine of 13 shooting, Damian Lillard added 21 points with nine rebounds and 10 assists while Brook Lopez chipped in with 16 points on six of 12 shooting. As a team, the Bucks shot 47 percent from the field and 13 of 37 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they scored just 20 points in the second quarter to trail going into halftime, before they took control of the contest with a dominant 36-13 third quarter to lead by as many as 17 points. The Bucks will meet the Hornets in a back-to-back set after this one.

Philadelphia 76ers

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been struggling as well as they've lost 10 of their last 14 games overall, but they will be feeling a little better after taking down the Cavaliers in a solid 104-97 win on Friday. Tyrese Maxey led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds and five assists, Tobias Harris added 15 points with nine rebounds and four assists while Cameron Payne chipped in with 16 points on six of 11 shooting off the bench. As a team, the 76ers shot 44 percent from the field and 12 of 29 from the 3-point line as they kept the Cavaliers in check from the start, trading baskets in a close conest until the fourth quarter where they started to pull away.

Bucks vs 76ers Prediction

The Bucks are still a little short handed with Khris Middleton still listed as out, while the 76ers are still without Joel Embiid and Robert Covington. The Bucks are coming into this game fresh off an upset win over the in-form Timberwolves, but they were really struggling before that win and I guess you could say the same about the 76ers who were in a terrible slump before they surprising win over the red-hot Cavaliers in hteir last outing. It's hard to back either side with too much confidence, but the line is short enough here for me to side with the Bucks who will turn things around sooner rather than later.
