Caron Butler added 22 points and 11 rebounds, while Brandon Knight finished with 21 points and six assists for Milwaukee, which snapped a five-game losing streak.

"I got a rhythm early and fed off my teammates," Butler said.

Thaddeus Young had 30 points and 10 rebounds and Spencer Hawes tallied 25 points and 11 boards for the Sixers, who have dropped 12 straight road tilts.
