Good defense and not-so-good shooting meant two first-round series became more competitive Thursday while another is on the verge of ending in a sweep:
The Wizards only had two healthy guards, but they held on to beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-93 on Wednesday at Verizon Center. It was their eight home victory in 11 games.
Since the start of training camp, the Wizards have urged rookie Bradley Beal to play with more aggression.
MILWAUKEE (AP) Trevor Booker scored 18 of his 22 points in the first half to lead the Washington Wizards to a 102-94 exhibition victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
