MILWAUKEE (AP) – Michael Redd scored 11 of his 32 points in the fourth quarter, and the Milwaukee Bucks overcame Andre Iguodala’s triple-double to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 98-94 on Wednesday night.

Milwaukee looked out of sync most of the night, but snapped its three-game losing streak after taking its first lead with 1:14 left on two free throws by Redd that made it 95-93.

The teams traded free throws, but Iguodala failed to score driving to the basket. Redd hit 1-of-2 to give the Bucks a 97-94 lead with 5.7 left.

Philadelphia ran a play for Kyle Korver, but Ruben Patterson took the ball out of his hands and hit a free throw to seal it and extend the Sixers’ losing streak to four games.

The game was missing most of its star power. It was supposed to feature Redd (29.5) and Allen Iverson (28.7), the league’s second and third-leading scorers.

But Iverson (abscessed wisdom tooth) and fellow All-Star Chris Webber (sore back) didn’t make the trip, while the Bucks went without starting point guard Mo Williams (elbow bruise).

Iguodala stepped up with 18 points, 16 rebounds and 10 assists for his second career triple-double, but it wasn’t enough.
