Bucks Host Wizards Tonight

MILWAUKEE, Wi (LEARFIELD-WSAU) The Milwaukee Bucks will try to break their nine-game losing streak tonight, when they host Washington.  The Bucks dropped their last two games by a total of 43 points to Detroit and Charlotte.  Milwaukee is third-to-last in the N-B-A in scoring, with just under 90 points.  And at 2-and-11, they have the second-worst record in the N-B-A behind Utah.

  Coach Larry Drew says the Bucks need to step up their defense.  He said the Bucks are not built to out-score opponents, so they have to win on defense.  Better rebounding would help.  Milwaukee has the second-lowest average boards per game with 39. 

Tonight, the Bucks will face a Wizards' team that's 6-and-8.  Washington learned yesterday that its leading scorer, shooting guard Bradley Beal, will be out for at least two weeks with a stress fracture in his right leg. 

Point guard John Wall has gotten hot for the Wizards, with three straight games of at least 30 points.
