Recap

It took overtime to get it done, but the Wizards got their third straight win and fifth in their last six games, taking down the Bucks in Milwaukee, 100-92. At the end of regulation, O.J. Mayo hit a deep three to tie things up and John Wall had a chance to win it on the last possession, but his floater bounced out. The Wizards would then control the extra session, locking down on defense and outscoring the Bucks 13-5 to get the victory.

Key Moment

The Wizards went more than four minutes without a bucket and trailed by three with under a minute left when Martell Webster sank a corner 3-pointer to tie the score at 84. Webster was fouled on the play for his signature 4-point play, but was unable to convert at the free-throw line. Still, the three was a huge lift to the Wizards and helped send the game into the overtime session.

Key Number

Unsung Hero
