Bucks Vs. Wizards: Milwaukee Rides Second-Quarter Surge To 51-36 Halftime Lead

The first quarter went fine for the Washington Wizards. The second quarter, though, was a different story. The Wizards were outscored 29-15 in the second quarter and trail the Milwaukee Bucks 51-36 at halftime. 

John Salmons has 18 points on 6-9 shooting to lead the Bucks, who really clamped down on the Wizards in the second quarter. The Wizards had just six made field goals in the quarter, with six turnovers there to boot. For the game, the Wizards are shooting just 33 percent from the field and have 11 turnovers.

With the score tied at 30, the Bucks went on an 11-2 run to take a 41-32 lead with 2:47 remaining. The Bucks then hit two straight three-pointers in the final minute, one by Salmons and one off the glass by Brandon Jennings at the buzzer to account for the halftime margin.

Jordan Crawford leads the Wizards with 11 points. The Wizards are playing without Rashard Lewis and Josh Howard, and also lost Andray Blatche to a shoulder injury early in the first quarter.
