Carter-Williams impresses in debut, Bucks rout 76ers 104-88

Posted:

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- John Henson scored 21 points, Michael Carter-Williams had seven points and eight assists in his Milwaukee debut, and the Bucks built a big early lead against the point guard's former team in a 104-88 win Wednesday night over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Khris Middleton added 19 points for Milwaukee, which led by as many 29.

Jason Richardson scored 16 for the 76ers, who lost their fifth straight game.

Carter-Williams went from one of the NBA's worst teams to a surprising upstart vying for the playoffs. The 6-foot-6 floor general broke down defenders and used his long arms to guard on the perimeter.

The addition of Carter-Williams also moved Jerryd Bayless back to his regular role as a spark off the bench.
