Recap


76ERS 90, BUCKS 85: Evan Turner scored a career-high 29 points and grabbed 13 rebounds as visiting Philadelphia remained in contention for the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Jodie Meeks scored 20 of his 27 points in the second half as the 76ers rallied for their first four-game winning streak on the road since March 2008.

Philadelphia remained tied with New York for seventh in the East after the Knicks defeated the Los Angeles Clippers 99-93 later Wednesday. The Knicks hold the tiebreaker.

Despite missing two starters and their top two reserves, the Sixers ensured that the Bucks would finish with a losing record for the seventh time in the last eight seasons.

Meeks sparked a third-quarter comeback, scoring 11 points in a 19-4 burst to turn a 54-47 deficit into a 66-58 lead with four minutes to go. He had 13 points in the quarter as Philadelphia led 71-63 entering the fourth.

The Bucks whittled a 10-point fourth-quarter lead to 88-85 with 38.1 seconds left, but Turner hit a pair of free throws in the final seven seconds to seal it.

Brandon Jennings scored 19 points and Tobias Harris added 15 points and 13 boards for Milwaukee, which had its two-game winning streak snapped.
