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.
Giannis nearly has spectacular dunk and Henson rebounds and is fouled. Henson has 11 points and 11 boards at half.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman and Mauer having a serious jawing match and Wittman picks up tech. No surprise there?
Giannis and Nate back with 1:34 left in quarter.
Crowd upset about offensive foul call on Wall. Middleton drew charge. Now Ken Mauer T's up a frustrated Wall after no call on Wall's drive.
Henson emphatically rejects Nene shot.
James Khristian Middleton.
Now Luke Ridnour in for Nate, so all three PGs have played in first half. Webster has sprained left ankle and doubtful to return.
Porter and Giannis are matched up - third and 15th picks, respectively, in last draft.
Verizon Center crowd stands to applaud NBA debut of former Georgetown star Otto Porter.
Webster appeared to hurt left ankle on shot at end of quarter.
Great pass from Wolters to Henson for dunk and Bucks lead 34-30 after one. Webster goes down on final play of quarter, limps off.
Udoh is on floor so able to go despite sprained ankle.
Wolters told me before game he will be ready whenever called. Played 20 minutes at Charlotte but DNP-CD last 3 games.
Giannis coming in for Middleton, who had 9 points.
Coach Larry Drew said before game he has to find time for rookie Nate Wolters. And when Knight gets 2nd foul, Wolters enters.
Mayo has 7 points early and Bucks lead 16-14.
Ekpe Udoh is available off the bench. Bucks take a 20-second timeout just 26 seconds into game. Very rare.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman said rookie Otto Porter likely to make season debut. Porter has been sidelined by hip flexor injury.
Bucks' Ersan Ilyasova will start at power forward tonight vs. Washington.
That win over the Nets wasn't just another win for embattled coach Mike Woodson, who is on the hottest of hot seats.
NBA exec on Bucks trading Larry Sanders: "Who wants him now? And with that contract." 4 more years for $44M.
Told Rockets want two 1st rounders or one first and good young player for Asik. Good luck with that.
It isn't a question if the Rockets will unload Asik, it's just when.
Ridnour showing plenty of toughness playing w/bad back, but is this really helping anyone? Maybe let him rest and play Nate, eh?
So Bucks' team leader in assists per game (Wolters) has DNP-CD'd the last three games. Related: they have the worst offense in the league.
Former U.S. national team coach Bob Gansler said it's all right for U.S. to embrace role of underdog in tough World Cup group.
