Milwaukee Bucks guard Monta Ellis led the team with 22 points Friday night, as the Bucks beat the Washington Wizards 101-91.

The Bucks (3-1) rallied well from a poor start which saw them outscored 12-0. They then went on a 14-2 run to get themselves back into the game, and created a 56-47 halftime lead.

Milwaukee had five players scoring double digits including Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova.

The Wizards (0-4) were led by guard Bradley Beal scoring 22 points and forward Trevor Ariza scoring 15 points with eight rebounds.

Milwaukee forward Mike Dunleavy was one rebound away from a double-double game, and also led the team in rebounds.

The Bucks look to take down the Boston Celtics (2-3) for the second time this season at home on Saturday night.
