Bucks Vs. Wizards Score Update: Washington Trails Milwaukee By 8 At Half

The Milwaukee Bucks shot 47 percent from the floor in the first half at Verizon Center and have a 55-47 lead heading into the locker room. Washington trailed by as many as 15 points before cutting it in half. The Bucks were led by Monta Ellis, who's never shy on the offensive end of the floor and has 14 points on eight shots. Mike Dunleavy, who had one of the best games of the season against the Wizards at the end of February, added ten points off the bench. Milwaukee has already scored 12 more points off the bench, which was the difference in their last meeting.

Jordan Crawford, the Wizards' version of Ellis when it comes to chucking, leads all scorers with 15 points. John Wall scored eight points and dished five assists against Milwaukee's duo of Ellis and Brandon Jennings. Jan Vesely, who was impressive on the glass with 11 boards on Friday when Nene went out with an injury, has eight points and five boards. Washington's offense has been relatively smooth so far, committing only six turnovers but they will have to get some stops on the other end and slow down Ellis to cut into the halftime deficit.
