Bucks have held Brook Lopez scoreless in second half. Zero points.
Strange half and Bucks lead 40-39. Lopez has 20 points for Brooklyn. Nobody hitting shots: Nets at 36% and Bucks at 42%.
Raduljica converts 3-point play after scoring off a rebound. And he has five points.
The down side: Brook Lopez now has 14 first-chance points.
Miroslav Raduljica checks in for a chance to put a body on Lopez. A big body.
Zero second-chance points for the Nets. This is a nice surprise.
Lopez has not missed a shot yet - 6 for 6. Here comes Gary Neal, who got a DNP-CD in Washington last night.
Bucks trail Nets 20-18 after one quarter. Giannis scores off Wolters pass for final basket of period.
Nate Wolters checks in for Bucks.
John Henson has nine points in first 10 minutes but Nets lead 18-14.
Udoh opens guarding Lopez. Bucks off to slow start and trail 5-2.
Bucks coach Drew expressed concern about defending Nets center Brook Lopez. Kevin Garnett to deal with, too.
Ekpe Udoh back in starting lineup tonight and Ersan Ilyasova off bench. Udoh did not start in Washington due to ankle but played 33 min.
Zaza Pachulia and Caron Butler still out for Bucks tonight due to injury. Ekpe Udoh (sore ankle) got through Friday game OK and is playing.
Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd said Shaun Livingston will start at PG tonight against Bucks. Livingston replaces Tyshawn Taylor.
Surprisingly, there are people named Davis and Palmer who aren't nicknamed "Chili."
I hate the idea of penalty kicks, but I absolutely love watching 'em. Great drama.
UW keeps rolling, beats MU 70-64.
If Jamil Wilson continues to play like he did today, he'll be on some NBA team next season.
You can tell I'm a Bucks fan because I'm watching Kansas play instead of UW/Marquette.
UW-UW game isn't boring now. UW up by 6 with 1:18 left.
Jamil Wilson is putting Warriors on his back and keeping them within striking range of UW.
Fun Facts: John Henson has almost doubled his assist rate while reducing his turnover rate this season.
Dekker delivering at both ends of court: 18 points, 8 rebounds.
When Jamil Wilson is on top of his game, he's really good. Just needs to stay in attack mode.
UW has some terrific athletes, notably Dekker. It would be interesting to see Ryan use a more free-flowing style.
MU on brink of destruction - down by 11 - and Williams sits J. Wilson. Why?
BU handle ur business!!!!
When is Williams going to start Gardner? Bad start to game; bad start to 2nd half. MU needs his inside presence in bad way.
MU's Mayo isn't playing because of unspecified team violation.
C'mon OU, I'm tryna hit a BCS game
MU plays horribly but only down a trey at halftime.
Wilson has it going now: two straight baskets.
Does Buzz Williams run any plays for Jamil Wilson? Warriors have get him going.
It's almost halftime and UW leads MU 22-20. One poorly-played, boring game so far.
"Your mouth writing checks that yo ass can't cash"
The only way MU can beat UW is playing uptempo and not running down shot clock on every possession.
Marquette's offense is truly offensive. Not one certifiable scorer.
There are few, more skilled college players than Wisconsin's Sam Dekker. A sure-fire pro.
Great line from Washington Post's Steven Goff on U.S. World Cup draw into Group G: "That's G as in goodness gracious."
Gotta love Saturday mornings when these two are around..
Don't you hate when u trying to help someone, but they don't pick up or hit ignore Haaaaa
Love this city .
Final: Bucks 109, Wizards 105.
Bucks win with Middleton scoring 29 and Henson adding 19 points, 17 rebs. Knight's clutch shots in regulation and OT give Mke its 4th win.
Washington strategy of missing all shots does not pay off. Bucks win at basketball.
Judging by the Wiz TV crew, you'd have thought the Bucks just beat the Pacers or something.
Knight pumps his fist after Wall and Rice go Keystone Cops on the baseline to turn it over. Big fourth quarter and overtime from Knight.
Knight hits a clutch 2 with 21.1 left and Bucks lead, 108-105.
Mayo fouls a 3-point shooter and Ariza at line, makes all 3.
Ruling on floor stands and Wizards keep possession.
Play being reviewed to see which team gets possession. Ball appeared to go off Wall; not sure if Knight touched it.
Statistically, Wizards have never scored in overtime tonight.
Henson and Ilyasova score in OT and Bucks lead 106-102.
Big bail-out jumper from Henson, who seemingly hadn't taken a shot since the third quarter.
Wall has 5 fouls; so does Ilyasova.
Singleton missed a potential winning 3 on kick-out from Wall.
Bucks head to OT against Wizards again. Bucks have dropped OT games to Philly and Washington.
I'm walking out of the room if Ersan is on the court for this final defensive possession.
Bucks not going down without a fight as Knight drills a clean 3 look and signals to crowd. Game tied at 102 and Wizards timeout, 15.1 left.
Wall now has 30 points and is 12 of 13 at FT line.
Injuries probably aren't helping, but feels like Ersan's defense has gone from "smoke and mirrors" to "raging inferno and shattered glass."
Gortat with screen and Wall hits clutch jumper as Wizards lead 102-97 with 54.2 left. Henson couldn't get out fast enough on shooter.
Knight and Mayo's late-game turnover problems are getting comical.
Knight scores on drive and Bucks lead 95-94 with 4:16 left.
Middleton has 27 points.
Trevor Booker dunks on feed from Wall and Wizards have taken lead at 85-84 with 8:13 left. Bucks call a timeout.
That was some rookie year Henson on Booker's slam. Just got out of the way.
Ariza 4 for 4 on threes in third quarter for Wizards.
Wall makes block to fire up crowd at end of quarter as he knocks away Wolters shot on break. Bucks clinging to 78-74 lead.
Nene out with right foot tendinitis and will not return, Wizards say.
Giannis rebounds airball by Ilyasova and scores.
Bucks respond to Wizards surge with 6-0 run of their own on baskets by Henson (tip), Mayo and Knight. Bucks lead 62-50.
Ilyasova picks up two quick fouls in third quarter and has to go to bench. Udoh replaces him. Wizards within 56-47 and Drew calls a timeout.
So it took a game and a half for the Wizards to realize Ersan can't guard Nene.
Bucks lead at halftime, 56-43, and Middleton leading way with 20 points.
