The Milwaukee Bucks ran away from the Washington Wizards in the fourth quarter on Monday night to win 112-98 at Verizon Center. With both Trevor Booker and Nene out, Milwaukee moved the ball with ease through the Wizards' defense to shoot 52 percent from the floor. The Bucks went on a run in the fourth quarter, scoring on 10 of 11 possessions to push the lead above 20 points after the Wizards had cut it to seven.
The Wizards had five players in double figures, led by Jordan Crawford who finished with a game-high 23 points. John Wall narrowly missed a double-double, scoring 14 points and dishing nine assists. But it was the other end of the floor that created problems for Washington, as Milwaukee spread it around both inside and outside to move the ball and get easy buckets. Brandon Jennings had 19 points and Monta Ellis added 17. Ersan Ilyasova, who's having a breakout season statistically, finished with a 16 and 11 double-double.
Washington will stay home and now host the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night.
