The magic number for the Milwaukee Bucks is now four. Any combination of Milwaukee wins and 76ers losses that total four will help the Bucks clinch a playoff position in the Eastern Conference.
The number dropped after an impressive fourth quarter closing out the Los Angeles Lakers 113-103. The win featured a career night for Larry Sanders who poured in an all-time high 21 points for the young center.
Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova each added 20 points while Monta Ellis and Marquis Daniels played intense defense in the final quarter and combined for an additional 34 points.
