7:53:26 PM: Fellow ESPN TrueHoop Networker @Bucksketball previews tonight’s game & picks the Bucks to win 96-93 http://bit.ly/53Uiia

7:53:59 PM: Mike of @BulletsForever is wishy-washy on the game, but soooo wants to pick the Bucks to win. Actually, he kinda did.

7:58:46 PM: Nick Young had his1st career 30 point game last year in a loss against the Bucks on Jan. 12, 09.

7:59:57 PM: Cop-out RT @PDCavsInsider Don’t blame LBJ on dunk contest. Sort of no win situation. He wins, was expected. He loses 2 Nate & it’s a story.

8:02:08 PM: Wiz have lost 4 in a row against Bucks. Last won on 3/11/08 w a starting lineup of Antonio Daniels, Stevenson, Jamison, Songaila & Haywood

8:08:05 PM: If Flip Saunders doesn’t like late-arriving crowds, tonight’s attendance is really going 2 irk him. I’d estimate less than 6,000 here.

8:09:49 PM: Damn. RT @TimLemkeTWT TWT reducing staff by at least 40%. Sports likely to be gone, though nothing official.
8:10:58 PM: Late-arriving crowds are part of DC NBA basketball. No excuse though. Maybe the games should start @ 7:30.

8:18:48 PM: Damn, Caron Butler just did some hair w a behind the back dribble & behind the back pass to Haywood for a dunk.

8:29:33 PM: Damn. The Verizon Center is sooooo quiet. I can hear Flip Saunders drawing on the dry erase board … and I’m at the top of Section 104.

8:34:57 PM: G’Night Scott Skiles … you’ve been EJECTED!

8:37:14 PM: After 1st Q, Wizards up 26-22. Milwaukee picked up 4 late offensive boards, the Wizards have zero.

8:50:51 PM: Caron Butler yelled, “I’m the dingo & I just ate your baby!” as he dunked on Bogut.

9:09:28 PM: Internet issues are plaguing the media table here at the Verizon. Wonder if it has to do with the way the Wizards are playing.

9:19:49 PM: The reason the Wiz are down 54-50 at the half? 11 turnovers leading to 12 Milwaukee points.

9:23:33 PM: Each of Nick Young’s 4 turnovers has led to Bucks points. He had 3 from the 3:28 mark in the 2nd to the 2:12 mark.

10:00:01 PM: If the Wizards are going to play like this in back-to-backs all year, there are a lot more troubles on the way.

10:01:08 PM: Wiz down 84-82 with 9:03 left. This game is waiting to be taken by whomever wants it more.

10:06:16 PM: Andray Blatche instead of Haywood on Bogut leads to a Bucks trey. 89-86 before Blatche makes it 88.

10:14:49 PM: Brendan Haywood is not playing, but he’s got jokes on the bench that are cracking Nick Young up.

10:16:37 PM: Brendan Haywood is checking back in for final 2:47.

10:22:12 PM: Earl Boykins is the Closer. Flip has only called for Pick&Rolls b/t him & Haywood on last couple of possessions. Wiz up 100-99, 0:59 left

10:26:54 PM: So who gets the final shot for the Wiz? Arenas or Boykins?

10:32:34 PM: Wiz get a good, but not great win over the Bucks, 104-102.
