Recap: Milwaukee vs. Philadelphia

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Khris Middleton scored 27 points and the Milwaukee Bucks defeated the Philadelphia 76ers 116-106 on Saturday night.

Caron Butler added 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Brandon Knight finished with 21 points and six assists for Milwaukee, which snapped a five-game losing streak.

Butler returned to the lineup after missing 12 games with a swollen left knee.

"I got a rhythm early and fed off my teammates," Butler said.

Thaddeus Young had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Spencer Hawes tallied 25 points and 11 boards for the Sixers, who have dropped 12 straight road tilts.

"Trying to find 48 minutes worth of defense has been a problem," Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

The Bucks led 59-49 at the break, but the Sixers scored the first eight points of the third to pull within 59-57. Middleton then put in six points during a 10-2 Milwaukee swing to put the hosts back up by double digits, 71-61, with 7:06 remaining in the third.
