NBA’s Two Worst Records Meet As Sixers Host Bucks
By Matt Leon
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The two teams with the worst records in the NBA will battle on Monday night as the 76ers host the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Bucks have the league’s worst mark, they are just 10-45 this season. The Sixers are better at 15-41, but they have the NBA’s longest current losing streak at ten games.
Philadelphia’s roster looks a lot different than it did this time last week after GM Sam Hinkie pulled the trigger on four deals at the trade deadline on Thursday. One of the players not dealt, Thaddeus Young, had a huge game last time out on Friday against Dallas, with 30 points, 13 rebounds, 6 assists and 7 steals in a 124-112 loss.
The 76ers and the Bucks have played twice this season. The Sixers won at the Center in overtime back on November 22nd, 115-107, in overtime. The Bucks took the second meeting in Milwaukee, winning 116-106 on December 21st.
KYW’s Matt Leon spoke with Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, to get some insight into what Sixers to watch the rest of the season and what to look for against the Bucks.
