(SportsNetwork. Benito Santiago Jersey Cubs .com) - The Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks, the two worst teams in the Eastern Conference last season, will meet Friday night at the Bradley Center. The Bucks home-opener Friday comes after a heart-breaking, 108-106 overtime loss Wednesday night in Charlotte against the Hornets. The Bucks squandered a 24-point third-quarter cushion when Charlottes Kemba Walker made a 3-pointer to tie the contest with 1.6 seconds left. Walker then won the game for the Hornets thanks to a jumper with 5.1 ticks on the clock. Milwaukee, coming off a league-worst 15-67 campaign, played well for much of the night under new head coach Jason Kidd before wilting down the stretch. Brandon Knight totaled 22 points, 13 assists and eight rebounds in a losing cause, with Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo each tallying 17 points for the Bucks. Larry Sanders and Giannis Antetokounmpo both finished with 10 points in defeat. Jabari Parker had a quiet NBA debut, however, managing just eight points and four rebounds in 37 minutes in the Milwaukee rookie and former Duke stars return to the Carolinas. It was everything I expected, two great teams going down to the wire, Parker said. The better team won today, but were going to get better. The Sixers, who owned the second-worst mark in the NBA last season, started the 2014-15 campaign with a 103-91 setback at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to the Indiana Pacers. Philadelphia was without Michael Carter-Williams, the reigning Rookie of the Year, who is on the shelf after offseason shoulder surgery. Joel Embiid, taken third overall in June, has a foot injury and will most likely miss the season, and Dario Saric, who the team traded for on draft night, has a two-year contract overseas. It looks like another long season ahead for the Sixers. Were not worried about whats on paper. They put the ball out there for a reason, to play 48 minutes, guard Tony Wroten said. Every game, we come out to play hard and try to win. Wroten ended with 22 points, eight boards, seven assists and three steals for the Sixers, who went 19-63 last season. Alexey Shved, who came to Philly in a deal for Thaddeus Young, tallied 18 points. Nerlens Noel had six points, 10 rebounds and three blocks in his NBA debut. Noel was acquired on draft night in 2013 and sat all of last season to heal from a torn ACL. The Bucks won two of three meetings against the Sixers last season, and have taken three in a row and six of the last seven as the host in this series. Nomar Garciaparra Jersey Red Sox .

Bradley, 26, has appeared in eight matches, registering two goals for Toronto FC in all competitions this season. Bradley has earned 83 caps to date for the U.S. team and has scored 12 goals. His most recent cap came on Apr. 2 in a friendly match against Mexico, where he started the match, registered a goal, an assist, and played the full 90 minutes in a 2-2 draw. Bradley was a member of the U.S. 2010 World Cup squad. He has also represented the U.S. at two CONCACAF Gold Cup tournaments, winning gold in 2007 and finishing as runners-up in 2011. Bradley also played in the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup, where the U.S. finished as runners-up to Brazil. The 32-year-old Donovan, bidding to make his fourth World Cup, was bypassed by U.S. coach Jurgen Klinsmann in favour of Aron Johannsson and Chris Wondolowski, who joined Jozy Altidore and Clint Dempsey as the forwards. Aside from Donovan, defenders Brad Evans, Clarence Goodson and Michael Parkhurst, midfielders Joe Corona and Maurice Edu, and forward Terrence Boyd were also cut. Donovan has 57 goals in 156 international appearances and has been the face of American soccer for thhe past decade, both with the national team and with Major League Soccer, where he has won five titles. Julian Tavarez Jersey Red Sox. Donovan was a mainstay of the national team before he took a sabbatical of about four months after the 2012 season, spending part of the time in Cambodia. Klinsmann said Donovan would have to earn his spot back. He restored Donovan to the roster for last summers CONCACAF Gold Cup, where Donovan excelled, and played Donovan for World Cup qualifiers later in the year. But Klinsmann kept him out of the starting lineup for last months exhibition against Mexico, saying Donovan practiced poorly because of a knee problem. Donovan said this week his knee was OK. "Im very confident in my abilities and I think Im deserving to be a part of the squad, but I have to prove that and I have to earn it," he said Monday. When Klinsmann announced his 30-man preliminary roster on May 12, he said he viewed Donovan more a forward than a midfielder. "I dont have that youthful energy and excitement that I did in 2002, but I see the game and I see the situation a lot more clearly now, so Im able to I think enjoy it more in that way," Donovan said. "When youre younger, youre just sort of going crazy to do whatever it takes to make the team and you forget to enjoy it, And now Im actually getting to enjoy it." ' ' '
