This was a very big matchup for the seeding in the Eastern Conference for the upcoming playoffs and this crucial win gives a big advantage to the Bucks over the 76ers.

Giannis Antetokounmpo was once again the standout player in a big match just like he has been throughout the season, as he dropped 40 points while also recording 14 rebounds and 6 assists to help his team.

The only thing positive for the Philadelphia 76ers to come out of this match against the Milwaukee Bucks was the performance of James Harden.

Harden, since his arrival in Philly, has struggled to play well in big matches but he certainly had a very good game against the Bucks in this big game at the top of the East.

James Harden dropped 32 points while also recording 9 assists and 6 rebounds but still was not able to help his team get the win, which would have been really upsetting for him.

Philadelphia 76ers will look to bounce back quickly from this defeat as playoffs are approaching fast and they have championship aspirations this season.
