Milwaukee, which hasn’t been in any particular winning streaks this season, yet hasn’t been in a losing one either.

The Bucks could not hold on to an eight-point lead at the half as the 76ers dominated the second outscoring the Bucks by 17 to win 113-104.

After winning nine games in a row, the Rockets suddenly seem human losing three of their last four games with the latest at Miami last night. Despite another triple-double from James Harden, the Heat used a 20-5 run midway in the fourth quarter to put the game away in a 109-103 victory.
