The Milwaukee Bucks dropped back below .500 after a miserable performance against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night in Washington, DC.
They actually cut Washington’s lead to six points in the third quarter before the Wizards went on a 13-to-nothing run and cruised to a 115-86 victory.
The Bucks committed 19 turnovers and were out-shot and out-rebounded.
Khris Middleton had 14 points to lead the Bucks, who played without forward Jabari Parker (sprained foot). John Wall and Otto Porter each scored 19 to lead the Wizards.
Former Bucks Gary Neal and Jared Dudley combined for 21 points off the bench.
The Bucks return to action Thursday night in Cleveland against the Cavaliers.
