The Milwaukee Bucks received a significant boost to their play-off aspirations. After Indiana lost their game against the Warriors, all the Bucks needed to do to get closer was to grab a win at the Washington Wizards. At first glance, it might look like an easy task since the Wizards are 16-47 this season. However, 15 of those wins were accomplished on their home ground, so the Bucks needed to pay close attention. Odds.

The first quarter revealed what everyone expected, a close contest with both teams fighting as if their lives were on the line. Sure there were some missed shots too, but Jennings and Crawford led their teams with tremendous skill and accuracy. The score of the first quarter was 22-21 and the home fans dared to hope.

“We kind of were on cruise control a little bit,” Jennings stated. “Our bench played great. Also John played great, and Bogut, with his first game back. … We’ve got to go on and get Cleveland tomorrow and Philly with the next game.” Scores.

However, the Washington Wizards couldn’t keep it going in the second quarter. Their offensive play was dreadful and the Bucks kept them down to 15 points. Meanwhile, the Bucks themselves were more than decent in attack, and scored a neat 29 points. It was the first quarter in which the Bucks greatly outscored their opponents, and it would be of paramount importance to the outcome of the game. The half time score was 51-36.

“I felt good,” Bogut stated. “My wind was good, conditioning was good. We moved the ball, we shared the ball, we hit some fast-break easy baskets, and we defended. … We don’t want to get stuck in that game of checking the standings every day. We just need to go out and play and win the games we’re supposed to.”

The third quarter was almost identical to the second. The Bucks kept it going and the Wizards were still unable to find a solution. As a result, the Bucks kept distancing themselves, adding 8 more points to their lead. By the end of the third quarter, the score was 75-52 and the game was all but over for the Wizards. Las Vegas odds.

With a 23 points advantage, the Milwaukee Bucks could relax in the fourth quarter, and so they did. Content with scoring just enough to win it, the Bucks lost 4 points out of their lead, but they still won this one, 95-76.
