Seven technical fouls were assessed in Saturday's home-opening win vs. the Milwaukee Bucks, who did their best to rattle the Wizards.
Otto Porter and Garrett Temple set career highs in scoring as the Wizards came alive in the second half and blitzed the Bucks 108-97.
A 16-point lead by the Wizards mostly evaporated before halftime when Paul Pierce got into a heated disagreement with officials.
Despite having a deficit in talent, the 15-win Bucks were a problem matchup for the Wizards last season and even won an overtime game at Verizon Center.
The Bucks are a much better team personnel-wise this season, but for the Wizards to win their home opener they'll look to John Wall to set the tone (CSN, 6:30 p.m. ET).
