GAME RECAP

Chris Webber scored 11 of his 24 points in the decisive first-half run and Rod Strickland recorded his second triple-double of the season as the Washington Wizards crushed the injury-depleted Milwaukee Bucks, 93-77.

Webber's 17-footer with 2:14 left in the opening quarter sparked the pivotal 14-2 surge, capped by Strickland's jumper 62 seconds into the second quarter for a 32-15 lead. The Bucks got no closer than 11 points the rest of the way.

"We needed a big win. We're glad to get it, so we could rest as many guys as possible for tomorrow's game in Philly," Webber said. "Tonight I tried to take advantage of some layups and slips because of the press they applied."

Strickland collected 17 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists for Washington, which snapped a three-game road losing streak and won for the fourth time in five games overall. The Wizards won away from home for the first time since earning a 110-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on February 11th.

"It was real nice. We haven't had a big win in a long time," Strickland said. "We got some big games on the road, we must keep on playing well."

Milwaukee was without its top two players -- forward Glenn Robinson and point guard Terrell Brandon. Robinson, the team's leading scorer, was placed on the injured list prior to the game with a knee injury. Brandon, who leads the team in assists, has been sidelined for over a month with an ankle problem.

"The report on Glenn may have taken away from the team's confidence tonight, but we still have to have personal pride and work hard," Bucks coach Chris Ford said. "We have 22 games left, so our team really has to step up defensively since we may have trouble scoring."

Ray Allen scored 15 points to pace the Bucks, who have lost five of their last six games. Milwaukee, which made just 6-of-19 from the field in the first quarter, lost for the third time in four home games.

"Anytime your leading scorer and leader are down it hurts and puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the team," Allen said. "Now we really have to step it up with both Glenn and Terrell out."

Webber drained a three-pointer as the shot clock expired to give the Wizards a 28-15 lead with 17 seconds left in the first period. He dunked to open the second quarter before Strickland buried a jumper.

A pair of free throws by Ricky Pierce pulled the Bucks within 40-29 midway through the second quarter, but Washington reeled off the next seven points. Tracy Murray capped that spurt with a layup, creating a 47-29 cushion.

The Bucks trailed 55-36 at halftime after hitting just 33 percent (13-of-39) from the field. Webber had 16 points by the break as the Wizards connected on 52.5 percent (21-of-40).

Strickland sank two foul shots to give Washington its largest lead, 70-44, with 6:19 remaining in the third quarter. The Wizards took a 76-55 lead into the final period and Milwaukee came no closer than the final margin.

"I wasn't real pleased with our mental approach, but we did a nice job of handling the press and our defense played well," Wizards coach Bernie Bickerstaff said. "Rod's been playing at a different level than others in this league and he did a good job tonight."

Strickland, who posted his first triple-double of the season exactly one month ago, played just 29 minutes in recording his fourth-career triple-double.

"Strickland was a handful tonight," Ford said. "He's the heart and soul of the Wizards."

Webber made 9-of-15 from the field as Washington shot 48 percent (34-of-71) and took advantage of 21 turnovers by the Bucks. The Wizards scored 25 points off those miscues while Milwaukee finished with just eight points from Washington's 11 turnovers.

Ledell Eackles chipped in with 11 points off the bench for the Wizards, who have blown out the Bucks in two trips to the Bradley Center this season. The Wizards earned a 100-79 victory in Milwaukee on December 22nd.

Pierce and Elliot Perry each scored 12 points for the Bucks, who shot 36 percent (28-of-71) overall and missed all five of their three-point attempts. Allen was just 5-of-15 from the floor, including an 0-for-4 effort from behind the arc, and committed seven turnovers.

The lone bit of good news for Milwaukee was that starting forward Tyrone Hill returned to the lineup after missing Saturday's 110-92 home loss to Utah with an upper respiratory infection. Hill finished with nine points and 10 rebounds in 29 minutes.
