Wizards Vs. Bucks: Wiz Blow Huge Lead Again, Fall To 0-20 On Road In 100-87 Loss To Bucks

Through the Washington Wizards' first 19 road losses, they went through the same pattern: they started slow, would trail by a considerable amount, fight back to take the lead and ultimately succumb to a game-ending run. Wednesday night in Milwaukee, the complete opposite happened.

The Wizards are now 0-20 on the road after blowing an early double-digit lead in a 100-87 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

Andray Blatche had 23 points to lead Washington. Nick Young had 21 points, while John Wall had 10 points and 13 assists.

Keyon Dooling also had 23 points to lead Milwaukee. Corey Maggette had 21 points and former Wizard Earl Boykins had 19 points.

Washington jumped out to an eight-point lead after the first quarter and had a double-digit lead early in the second quarter, but quickly lost it, leaving them with a two-point halftime lead of 49-47. In the third quarter, Milwaukee pulled away by outscoring Washington 28-17. The fourth quarter wasn't much better; the WIzards could not get back into the game as they had done in the fourth quarter in previous road outings.

The Wizards are just nine wins away from tying the NBA record for most consecutive road losses to start a season. Their next opportunity will be at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks January 24.
