Bucks Vs. Wizards: Nick Young Keys Wizards to 47-37 Lead at Half

The John Wall-Brandon Jennings matchup has taken a back seat as Nick  Young lead the Wizards in points and highlight dunks in the first half. Washington enters intermission leading the Bucks by a score of 47-37.

Young provided the future YouTube material when he drove from the wing and rose up over Ersan Ilyasova for the slam. He has 13 points and three rebounds at the half.

The Wizards also got production down low from JaVale McGee, who already has a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds. That effort has helped the Wizards own the glass with a 27-18 advantage in an area that gave them trouble in Saturday's loss to Atlanta.

Andrew Bogut has had success for Milwaukee at the other end with eight points and six rebounds. He added two blocks.

Jennings has been a relative non-factor for the Bucks, shooting just 2 for 8 and handing out just one assist. Wall meanwhile has seven points and four rebounds in 15 minutes.

The Wizards have controlled a somewhat ugly game, leading by as many as 12. The Bucks have not led by more than two points.
