Saturday, Nov. 22: Washington Wizards at Milwaukee Bucks

Saturday night brought an early-season rematch between the Bucks and Wizards.  Milwaukee went to Washington Nov.1 and lost 108-97.  Despite a fast start, the rematch proved to be no different.

Washington defeated Milwaukee 111-100.

Milwaukee came out of the gates ready to erase the memory of Friday nights game, and did a good job doing it.

Milwaukee was extremely active on defense in the first quarter.  They were in the passing lane of seemingly every pass Washington tried to complete.

However, Milwaukee got dominated in the paint for the second straight game.

Washington out-rebounded Milwaukee 53-36, and had 12 more offensive rebounds than Milwaukee.  Washington had 10 more points in the paint, and in the state of the night, had 29 second-chance points to Milwaukee’s 10.

The ageless Paul Pierce had a game high 25 points and 10 rebounds in just 28 minutes.  Milwaukee also had a healthy dose of Kris Humphries.  Yes, THAT Kris Humphries.  Kris played 20 minutes and added 12 points with nine rebounds, more rebounds than anyone on the Bucks.

Brandon Knight packed the stat sheet again totaling 27 points, six assits, five rebounds, but also had five turnovers.

Parker was an unfortunate no-show for most of Saturday’s game.  He added a mere six points and five boards in 27 minutes of play.

The loss dropped Milwaukee to 7-7.
