Recap: Philadelphia vs. Milwaukee

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Milwaukee Bucks came into Monday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers with an NBA-low 10 wins.

The Sixers played like they had the league's worst record, however, dropping their 11th straight contest in embarrassing fashion on their home floor.

O.J. Mayo led seven Bucks in double figures with 25 points behind 7-of-9 shooting from behind the arc as Milwaukee cruised to an easy 130-110 win.

Ersan Ilyasova chipped in with 20 points, Ramon Sessions donated 16 and Brandon Knight and Khris Middleton had 15 apiece in the rare rout. Only two of Milwaukee's previous wins were by double digits.

"I just take them any time, any way we can get them, whether we're at home or on the road," Bucks head coach Larry Drew said of the win.

Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams scored 28 and 20 points, respectively, in yet another setback for Philadelphia.

The Bucks, losers of 10 consecutive road games prior to the blowout, broke the game wide open with a 43-point outburst in the second quarter.

Mayo made two 3-pointers during a quarter-opening 12-1 run that extended Milwaukee's lead to 42-29. The struggling offseason acquisition later drained another deep make that started a 9-0 swing and stretched the lead to 21, and the Bucks kept their foot on the gas and took a staggering 73-44 advantage into the break.

"They hit every open shot," Young said. "We have to do a better job."

Nine different Bucks players scored during the lopsided 12-minute tear, and Philadelphia never recovered, trailing by as many as 35 in the second half.

Mayo ended the third with his sixth 3-pointer and was fouled for good measure, the free throw giving Milwaukee an insurmountable 30-point cushion at 106-76.
