The Milwauke Bucks played one solid quarter against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night, and now they have a 13-point loss to show it. Monta Ellis scored 26 points on a more-than-respectable 12-19 shooting, but he played some shotty defense on John Wall (23 points,10 assists, six rebounds, four steals) and the Wizards survived a third-quarter surge from Milwaukee to earn a nice win.
Martell Webster scored 17 of his 20 points in the first half as Washington built up double-digit lead, and by the end of the night Larry Sanders let his frustration show as he was ejected from the contest. The Hawks beat the Lakers, so the Bucks lost ground, and Milwaukee will next take on the Miami Heat, who won their 20th-straight game on Wednesday.
