Shooting guard Jordan Crawford is the only other Wizards player in double digits, coming off the bench to score 13 points in just ten minutes of playing time. Crawford has been efficient so far, shooting 5-8 from the floor and 3-5 from beyond the arc.

Washington has played strong defense as well, holding all Milwaukee players in single digits during the first two quarters. Brandon Jennings, Mike Dunleavy and Beno Udrih each have 7 points. The Bucks as a team are shooting 36.7% from the floor, compared to the Wizards' 53.5% shooting percentage.
