Recap: Washington vs. Milwaukee

Washington, DC (SportsNetwork.com) - Bradley Beal led six Washington players in double figures with 26 points as the Wizards cruised to a 104-91 win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday.

John Wall added 15 points and eight assists and Marcin Gortat finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds for the Wizards, winners in four of their last six games.

Trevor Ariza scored 13 points while Al Harrington and Trevor Booker finished with 12 and 11 points, respectively, in the win.

The Wizards currently hold a one-game lead over the Charlotte Bobcats for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference. Both teams have two games remaining. Washington also trails the Brooklyn Nets by 1 1/2 games for the fifth spot in the East. Brooklyn has three games remaining.

Ramon Sessions and Khris Middleton scored 20 points apiece, with Sessions also handing out eight assists, and John Henson donated 13 points and seven boards off the bench for the Bucks.

"We tried to make plays that weren't there and they resulted in turnovers," said Bucks head coach Larry Drew.

The Wizards opened the game on a 17-8 run, but saw their lead dwindle to just one, 27-26, at the end of the first quarter.

A Beal 3-pointer with 4:35 left in the second put the Wizards up 45-37, but a 10-4 burst from the Bobcats, capped with a Jeff Adrien free throw had the Bobcats within two, 49-47. Washington led 55-52 at the break.

"The first half became an up-and-down game. I told them at halftime we've got to get back to five guys pressuring," said Wizards head coach Randy Wittman.

Sessions had Milwaukee within a basket after knocking down a jumper with 5:16 left in the third, but Ariza capped an 8-0 run with a 3-pointer to give the Wizards a 79-69 lead with 4 1/2 minutes to go.
