(WNFL) - Milwaukee Bucks' coach Larry Drew says it's obvious that his team his missed Caron Butler's leadership on the floor. Butler returned on Saturday night after missing 12 games with a swollen left knee. The Racine native had 22 points, 11 rebounds, and four assists in a 10-point win over Philadelphia. Drew said Butler kept pumping up his teammates -- and he kept the players positive during a couple of bad stretches. Khris Middleton scored 27 for the Bucks against the Sixers. The second-year forward came from Detroit in July in the Brandon Jennings trade. Middleton is the only Bucks' player to appear in all 27 games so far, while averaging just over 20 points a game. Tonight, Milwaukee will play at Charlotte, which ended a three-game winning streak with an 88-85 loss to Utah on Saturday night. The Bobcats are among the N-B-A leaders in scoring with 93 points a game, and field goal percentage at 42-point-six. Kemba Walker has shot 62-percent in his last five games for the Bobcats. Charlotte is 13-and-15. The Bucks are 6-and-21.
