Bucks In Washington Tonight

WASHINGTON DC (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks will play at Washington tonight.  The Wizards come in at 9-and-9.  The Bucks are 3-and-15, as their offense struggles to control the ball and make baskets.  

Milwaukee has the N-B-A's second-lowest scoring average at just over 90 points a game, and the second-lowest shooting at almost 42-percent.  The Bucks also commit the league's sixth-highest number of turnovers per game, with almost 17, giving opponents many more chances to score.  And that tires out the Milwaukee defense, as evidenced by Detroit's 14-0 run on Wednesday night in the Pistons' seven-point victory.  

Point guard Brandon Knight said the Bucks don't get many easy baskets.  He blames a lack of patience, and the fact that 11 new players are still trying to blend in.  Knight says the decision-making will get better, and so will the team's performance on both ends of the floor.  

The Bucks do shoot free throws and three-pointers well.  They're seventh in the league with a 78-percent free throw average, and they're ninth in three-point shooting at 38-percent.
