The Washington Wizards came up with their biggest win of the season after beating the Denver Nuggets in their last game 92-85.
While the Milwaukee Bucks also came away victors in there last match against the Portland Trail Blazers (final score 115-107.)
The Milwaukee Bucks were able to get a nice win over a strong Portland Trail Blazers team that made the playoffs last season. A huge part in their winning efforts was the play of the Bucks bench.
They thoroughly outplayed Portland’s second unit all game, and that allowed them to pull away out on top.
Greg Monroe scored 15 points; Michael Beasley pitched in 12 points, while Malcolm Brogdon dropped 13 points.
The play of those three catapulted the Bucks offense, because the Trail Blazers bench had no answer to stopping Milwaukee’s reserves.
However, next game they’ve got to do the exact same thing to win. Washington doesn’t have a strong second unit, so Milwaukee has got to use that to their advantage.
The Wizards have shown a tendency to over rely on their starters; coach Scott Brooks isn’t one to play the reserves a lot of minutes, so look for John Wall and Bradley Beal to see a ton of playing time.
That means Milwaukee has got to just those two down, in order to pull away victorious.
The Washington Wizards came up with their biggest win of the season after beating the Denver Nuggets in their last outing. Washington played their best defense of the season, and in turn they came away with their biggest victory on the year.
Now maybe this starts to let the players know, that defense is the only way this team is going to get wins.
Washington has enough offensive firepower to get themselves wins with defensive stops. But they haven’t been a good defensive team this season, and that’s played a large part in the teams early season struggles.
But last game they showed up on that end of the floor, and they earned themselves a huge win in the process.
However, now that’s in the past as they’ve got to take on an even tougher opposition in the Milwaukee Bucks next game.
In order to pull out a win over the Bucks, Washington has got to emphasis defense again. The Bucks have got more scoring options, so Washington has got to do the best they can to shut them down.
Or else the Bucks are going to have a field day against the Wizards.
