WASHINGTON - Preseason basketball isn't usually a thing of beauty. There are new lineups, kinks to work out, deeper benches and tighter whistles as officials crack down on points of emphasis.
Sunday's matchup between the Milwaukee Bucks and Washington Wizards certainly wasn't the most polished contest -- the teams combined for 45 turnovers and 58 fouls -- but the Bucks remained unbeaten in the preseason with a 115-108 victory at Capital One Arena.
While the game itself wasn't all that smooth, the Bucks received a few strong performances. Khris Middleton, who played a featured role in the offense with Giannis Antetokounmpo out due to illness, had 22 points, nine rebounds and four assists while going 9 of 14 from the field. Ersan Ilyasova picked up where he left off Friday, making a three-pointer to open the game and finishing with 18 points on 5 of 8 shooting.
Sterling Brown had a big game off the bench, putting up eight points in the second quarter and driving strong to the hoop in the closing minutes to help seal the win. The third-year guard finished with 18 points on 6 of 9 shooting.Check back later for more from this game.
