Green, Iguodala lead 76ers past slumping Bucks

Jan 13, 2007 - 4:28 AM PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Willie Green and the Philadelphia 76ers were tired of losing, so they took out their frustrations on another struggling team.

Green scored a season-high 30 points as the 76ers posted a 110-97 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Andre Iguodala had 26 points, six rebounds, six assists and five steals for Philadelphia, which snapped its own four-game losing streak while extending Milwaukee's skid to five.

Green, who missed all but 10 games last season because of right knee surgery and entered averaging 10.6 points in 32 games, shot 13-of-19 from the field. Andre Miller had 11 points and 11 assists for his fourth double-double since being acquired in a trade with Denver for superstar Allen Iverson. The 76ers are 5-7 since the trade.

"Every opportunity I get I tried to take advantage of it," Green said. "Tonight, I just wanted to take my time and pick and choose when to attack. I just had it going tonight. When I'm in the starting lineup, I'm more in a attack zone from the beginning."

Reserve Kyle Korver had 17 points and Samuel Dalembert added 16, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Sixers, who shot 49 percent (39-of-79) from the field.

"We had a great performance from Willie Green, who just started," Sixers coach Maurice Cheeks said. "Iguodala had a great second half and I thought Sam, although Andrew Bogut had a nice game, defended him well."

"Sam had some blocks inside and Andre Miller had some inside steals," Iguodala said. "Then we just pushed the momentum, which gave us the advantage."

Charlie Bell scored 26 points and Bogut had 20 and a career-high 24 rebounds for the Bucks, who are on their longest losing streak since an eight-game slide late in the 2004-05 season.

The 24 boards by Bogut tied a Wachovia Center record which was held solely by former New Jersey Net Jason Williams.

"I got a couple of offensive boards and just got going," Bogut said. "Defensively, I just kept my body on those guys and the ball. I got a couple of lucky bounces and once that happened, I got my confidence up and started getting every board.

"It's nice to get a game like that but in a loss, it's useless. We lost to a team that we should have beaten tonight."

Earl Boykins, in his first game with the Bucks since being acquired with Julius Hodge from Denver for Steve Blake, had 11 points and 11 assists for Milwaukee, which shot 48 percent (42-of-88).

"I felt that I did OK but, it's hard to say you did well when you loose," Boykins said. "I really wanted to come tonight and help the team get a win. Tonight, we came up short."

"Offensively he ran the show," Bucks coach Terry Stotts said. "He's a smart player and has good court sense. Earl's a good player, he played well tonight."
