GAME RECAP

Juwan Howard scored 25 points and grabbed 10 rebounds as the Washington Wizards won their season-high fifth straight game with their biggest win of the year, 110-79 over the Milwaukee Bucks.

Chris Webber netted 23 points and Rod Strickland added 19 and 10 assists for Washington, which reached the .500 mark (14-14) for the first time since it was 4-4 on November 13th. The Wizards have won the last three meetings in Milwaukee.

"We played well from the beginning offensively and defensively," said Strickland. "We did that much of the whole game. It's a big victory for us, getting back to .500. We must go forward from here. We're definitely a playoff-caliber team."

Glenn Robinson tallied 22 points and Tyrone Hill had 11 and 11 rebounds for Milwaukee, which has lost six of its last seven games. The Bucks also suffered their worst loss of the year and their worst against Washington, breaking a 136-107 setback on November 14th, 1988.

"We couldn't muster any defense tonight," said Bucks coach Chris Ford. "We played so well 48 hours ago, but we couldn't sustain it. We were totally out of sync at both ends of the floor and we couldn't find a way to get through it. It's tough to write these things off."

The Bucks held their last lead at 7-6 with 9:42 to go in the first quarter before Washington embarked on an 18-2 run. Howard scored six points in the spurt and Webber had five as the Wizards assumed a 24-9 advantage with 3:54 left.

Webber netted nine points in the opening period and helped extend a 32-19 lead by capping a 10-2 burst to begin the second quarter with a jumper with 9:09 to play, making it 42-21. Webber had 14 at the half as the Wizards opened a 59-37 lead.

A layup by Ervin Johnson drew the Bucks within 68-52 with 6:55 to go in the third period, and they could have gotten closer, but missed three layups on the next possession. Howard then converted a pair of free throws as Washington led 86-68 heading into the final period.

Tracy Murray contributed 14 points off the bench and Calbert Cheaney had 12 for the Wizards, who recorded their largest victory margin since a 120-85 decision over Houston on January 25th, 1996. Washington shot an impressive 60 percent (41-of-68) from the field, including 5-for-6 from three-point range.

"We had them playing our game tonight," said Howard. "With a limited amount of players, we had to take advantage of our quickness. Our defense caused many turnovers. Without Terrell (Brandon) it hurt them. We had to focus on Ray (Allen) and Glenn (Robinson), and I feel we defended and pressured well tonight."

Johnson and Tony Smith each scored 10 points for Milwaukee, which shot just 38 percent (30-of-79) from the floor, committed 23 turnovers and was outrebounded, 39-34.

"We went out there and didn't provide the effort," said Bucks guard Ray Allen, who had just eight points. "Nobody wants to go out there and stink up the court. We went to work hard and I cannot explain what happened."
