Opening Remarks
I'd like to say it was terrible, but I'm not sure it was that good. That was pretty pathetic, really, all the way around. Our defense was adequate, but our overall energy, balls were on the ground. Our overall hustle, our enthusiasm, our offensive thrust, it was pretty poor.
Q: Besides missing shots, what contributed to tonight's performance?
A:  Normally, if you have a lot of juice and a lot of energy, it's funny how the ball goes in. We had our share of quality shots, but we missed a ton of layups. We missed open shots. We had a handful of guys out there competing, but not the whole group. We're not able to get away with that. We need to be on at all times, and tonight was another example of that. We're not respectful enough of how we need to execute. We're too sloppy in what we're doing and that really showed tonight. We've been able to get away with it in a few games, but it really showed tonight.

Center Andrew Bogut
Q: What was it about this Sixers team that created so many problems tonight?
A:  Thaddeus [Young] did a great job. He came off the bench and provided a spark for them. They're young. They're having a bad season so far, they have a bad record, but if you give a team like that a sniff, they can play with us and they get that attitude, especially at home. I think we came into this game playing to their record instead of playing them as NBA players. They're NBA players.
Q: Did guys look at the 2-10 record too much?

A:  I think so. I think we looked at it and thought it would be easier than it was, and it wasn't. We deserved to lose this game.

BOGUT BUCKS BREUER - Bucks center Andrew Bogut (475) moved past Randy Breuer (474) for fifth place in blocks on Tuesday night, but Bogut wasn't done there. He also passed Jack Sikma (3,087) for seventh in rebounds and currently stands at 3,103 for his career. Bogut also passed Jay Humphries (4,336) for 20th place in points scored and stands at 4,340. Next on each list for Bogut is Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in blocks (495), Sidney Moncrief in rebounds (3,447) and Oscar Robertson in points (4,701).

DEFENSIVE DEER
- The Bucks just wrapped a stretch where they faced four consecutive opponents who were ranked in the top-10 in scoring on the day of the game. In the first three games Milwaukee held New York, Atlanta and Golden state to an average of 19.8 points below their season average. The Lakers came into Tuesday's game as the top scoring team in the league and tallied 118 points, 5.5 over their season average. The Bucks are still third in the league in points allowed at 92.0 and fifth in defensive field goal percentage at 43.6.

BOARDEER WARS - The Bucks have outrebounded foes in eight of 11 games this year, including the last four. In those four, they've posted advantages of seven, 16, 12 and 11 on the boards and have gone 3-1 in that stretch. They've averaged 48.5 rebounds (194) to 37.0 for their opponents (148) with both Andrew Bogut (11.0) and Drew Gooden (10.3) snagging double-digit rebounds. Ersan Ilyasova (6.5), Brandon Jennings (6.0) and Luc Richard Mbah a Moute (5.8) have all contributed more than five rebounds. On the season the Bucks average 44.3 rebounds, good for fourth in the NBA. They're ranked eighth in offensive rebounds (12.4) and ninth in defensive (31.9) to join the Lakers and Wolves as the only teams ranked in the top 10 in offensive and defensive rebounding. The Bucks .528 rebounding percentage is second in the NBA.

NEARING NUMBERS - Drew Gooden passed the 7,000-point mark and Keyon Dooling swiped his 400th steal on Tuesday against Los Angeles and a few other personal milestones are on the way for Bucks players. Earl Boykins (596) is four games away from 600. Carlos Delfino (249) is one steal away from 250 for his career and (346) needs four threes to reach 350. Drew Gooden (444) is six steals away from 450 and (392) eight blocks away from 400. Ersan Ilyasova (489) needs 11 field goals for 500 and (142) eight 3-pointers for 150. Brandon Jennings (1,458) needs 42 points for 1,500. Corey Maggette (11,962) is 38 points away from 12,000 for his career. John Salmons (1,484) needs 16 assists for 1,500. The Bucks franchise (1,795) is five wins from 1,800. That's 14th among active franchises, but their .525 winning percentage (1,795-1,6267) is eighth among active franchises. Only Phoenix has been in the NBA as long as the Bucks among teams ahead of Milwaukee in wins. All other franchises joined the league before Milwaukee.
