|After a solid start, the Sixers sputtered in the second quarter, but were definitely born again hard when they came out of the locker room for the second half. I would've loved to have been a fly on the wall in there for Eddie Jordan's halftime speech. The Sixers are back to .500 after cruising though the fourth quarter to a 99-86 win over the rudderless Milwaukee Bucks.|
|I went into this game tracking two things for the Sixers: DiLeo's rotations and Reggie Evans' touches on offense. Take a look after the jump.|
|If the big question was who would step up in Thad Young's absence, the simple answer was just about everyone. In particular, Lou Williams and Donyell Marshall who led a fierce second-half comeback against the weary Bucks en route to a 105-95 win.|
|Nine games to go, 4 at home, 5 on the road. Tonight's matchup with the 32-44 Milwaukee Bucks could be a barometer for how this regular season will end. Milwaukee played last night, typically the Sixers would look past the Bucks. Will Thad's absence light a fire under the rest of the team, or will it be the same old, same old from the up-and-down Sixers?|

|The Sixers last met the Bucks, in Milwaukee, on December 17th. Going into that game, both teams were struggling about 5 games under .500. That was the night Elton Brand was lost to injury. Since Philly's 93-88 win, the teams have gone in different directions.|
|If you haven't heard, the Sixers were dealt a potentially deadly blow in the third quarter tonight. Elton Brand went down with a dislocated shoulder. I'll have more on that later, for now, let's talk about this come-from-behind win and how the bench carried the Sixers to the win.|
|First, the good news. Milwaukee is 11-15 coming into this game, but they only have 1 win over a team with a record over .500 (San Antonio sans Manu and Parker). The bad news: The Sixers only have 1 win over a + .500 team as well (Detroit, post-Chauncey). Wow, that's just sad.|
