Washington 79, Milwaukee 67
Las Vegas, July 15, 2007 -- In the final day of the NBA Summer League, the Washington Wizards turned the tables on the Milwaukee Bucks after trailing by as many as 11 points, to take the game by a 79-67 margin.
The game was only tied on one occasion at 31-31 and the last of three lead changes occurred with 2:29 remaining in the second quarter on a successful three-point attempt by Mike Hall.
The Bucks jumped out to a 21-14 lead after the first quarter of play, but watched as the Wizards poured in 30 during the second stanza to take a 44-34 edge at the half. The teams played nearly even in the second half with Washington scoring only two more points, 35-33.
“It felt good to have some shots fall,” noted Hall on his performance. “I struggled two games ago. I just wanted to get the win and that’s all I care about. When we win everyone looks good.”
Milwaukee had four players reach the double-figure plateau with David Noel leading the team with 12 points (4-12 FG). Spencer Nelson and Awvee Storey knocked down 11 apiece, while Ramon Sessions had 10 (3-7 FG).
With the win, the Wizards improved to 2-3 in its five-game schedule at the NBA Summer League, while the Bucks dropped to 2-3.
“We played hard,” said Hall. “We played well the entire summer league. The first couple of games didn’t go our way, so it’s nice to head back to D.C. with a smile on our face.”
