The Philadelphia 76ers surrendered a large first-half lead to the Milwaukee Bucks before rallying for an eight-point win at Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night.

The Sixers overcame a seven-point fourth-quarter deficit to win the game, after having coughed up an 18-point lead they held in the first half.

Guard Damien Wilkins led the 76ers in scoring, with 18 points. Center Spencer Hawes had 15 points and pulled down 17 rebounds.

The 100-92 victory was the 76ers’ third straight win at Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers now sit 6 1/2 games behind Milwaukee for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Monta Ellis led the Bucks in scoring, pouring in 29 points as star guard Brandon Jennings was benched for the fourth quarter. Jennings went scoreless for the first time in his career.
