The Milwaukee Bucks can’t win without defense. They showed that again last night with a 106-93 setback against the Washington Wizards.
The Bucks gave up 60 points in the first half and despite a second half resurgence, couldn’t climb all the way back in the loss.
John Wall scored 23 points and added 10 assists, 6 rebounds and 4 steals in the Wizards victory.
Monta Ellis had 26 points to lead the Bucks in defeat.
The Bucks are back home to host Miami at the Bradley Center on Friday night. The Heat has won 20-straight games after beating Philadelphia 98-94 last night. Miami is just one of four teams to win 20 or more consecutive games in a season. The 70-71 Bucks also accomplished the feat.
