The Bucks are a perfect 6-0 at home this season. They will visit the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday at Philips Arena and the New York Knicks on Friday at Madison Square Garden.
Philadelphia enters tonight's contest on a three-game losing streak. On Saturday, Kelenna Azubuike drained a three-pointer from the left corner with 6.2 seconds left in overtime to lift the Golden State Warriors to a 100-98 win over the Sixers at the Wachovia Center.
Andre Iguodala finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds and five steals in the loss to Golden State for the Sixers, who have dropped six of their last seven games overall. Andre Miller registered 23 points and Louis Williams netted 18 in defeat.
The Sixers are 1-5 on the road this season. They return home to host the Utah Jazz on Wednesday and the Washington Wizards on Friday at the Wachovia Center.
On the injury front for Philadelphia, forward Kyle Korver has missed four straight games with a strained right groin. Korver, who is averaging 9.1 points per game this season, is questionable for tonight's contest.
The Bucks were 2-1 against Philadelphia last season. The Sixers have dropped two of their last three at Milwaukee.
