Bucks 119, Wizards 118: Video, Stats, Recaps, Reaction

Fresh from the all star break, the Bucks looked ready to pummel the 7-26 Wizards into the ground, leading by as many as 22 during the second quarter and taking a 14 point lead into halftime. Nothing is safe with the Bucks though, and the Wizards chipped away at the lead with the help of some hot three point shooting and unlikely scoring from Maurice Evans, among others. But with the Bucks trailing 118-117, Ersan Ilyasova again came through for the Bucks with a game winning tip-in following a Brandon Jennings miss, ending fears of another blown game. Mike Dunleavy's shot was stellar all game for the Bucks, contributing a season-high 28 points.
