WASHINGTON D.C. - The Milwaukee Bucks had an easy win for a change, 95-76 at Washington last night.
The Bucks were up by 15 at the half. They led by 23 after three quarters, and starting guards John Salmons and Brandon Jennings finished their evenings at that point. Jennings had 23 points, five rebounds, four assists, and three steals. Salmons scored 22.
Bucks’ center Andrew Bogut returned after missing three games with a strained rib-cage – and he had 14 points, nine boards, and a season-high seven assists. Rookie Jordan Crawford had 22 points for the Wizards, who shot just 38-percent. Washington forward Andray Blatche left in the first quarter with a sprained right shoulder.
The Wizards fell to 16-47 on the year. The Bucks won just their fifth game in their last 17 – and they moved to within two-and-a-half games of the final Eastern Conference spot, as eighth-place Indiana lost. The Bucks are back home tonight against Cleveland.
