Boykins free-throws lead Wizard's over Bucks
WASHINGTON D.C. - Earl Boykins made two free throws with one second left to give the Washington Wizards a 104-to-102 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks in the nation's capital last night.
The 5-5 Boykins played part of a season in Milwaukee a couple years ago. He used a head fake to draw a foul against rookie Brandon Jennings - who said he didn't deserve the call because Boykins jumped into him. The Bucks shot 44-percent from the floor, to Washington's 54-percent.
Bucks' coach Scott Skiles was ejected in the first quarter, saying he tried to put a fire under the team by complaining about a foul that wasn't called. Skiles said they lost the game before it even started, and they had way too many defensive breakdowns.
Luke Ridnour and Hakim Warrick each scored 20 points off the bench for Milwaukee. Gilbert Arenas had 22 for the Wizards, who won their fourth game in their last five and improved to 7-and-10. The Bucks dropped to 9-and-8, and will play at Detroit tomorrow night.
