Advertisement

Nets who are on a 5 game winning streak defeated the Indiana Pacers 124-115 to increase their chances of finishing first in their conference.

Their night was made even better following the Milwaukee’s victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Sixers had not lost a game since the turn of the month and since their defeat to the Cavaliers, but a defeat at the hands of the Bucks means their 6 game winning streak comes to an end.

In that run, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Pacers, Jazz, Bull, Wizards, Spurs as well as Knicks.

The Milwaukee Bucks were powered to victory by the in-form Giannis Antetokounmpo who poured in 32 points and 15 rebounds to help his side secure a 105-109 victory at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.

Based on last night’s results, the Sixers and the Nets, who were powered to victory by a James Harden triple double, are now tied on 28-13 while the Bucks still remain in third place with 26-14.
