MILWAUKEE — Andrew Bogut scored 17 points and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute had 14 points, 12 rebounds and five steals to lift the Milwaukee Bucks to a 102-74 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.
The Bucks have been the worst-shooting, lowest-scoring team in the NBA, but were anything but for a third straight game to match their season-best winning streak.
Despite a trying season because of injuries to all five starters, the Bucks (26-38) are a half-game back of Indiana and Charlotte for the final spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The Sixers (34-32) started off this five-game road trip with a dud despite 16 points from reserve Lou Williams. They remain comfortably in seventh place in the standings, but failed to gain ground on New York.
