Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bucks just hit a 3. And then they got a technical.
There was some confusion on their substitutions. Bobby Portis ran on the floor for part of the possession, so they had six players on the floor. Mass confusion though because the officials did not stop the play. – 7:00 PM

Intersting that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is taking technical free throws with Bradley Beal on the floor
Beal literally has not missed a free throw this season and KCP misses the technical – 6:49 PM

Bucks and Wizards tied at 31 with 9:00 left in the first half.
Hasn’t been the prettiest game. Wizards have nine turnovers. Bucks have hit just 12 of the 32 shots they’ve taken thus far. – 6:45 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Kyle Kuzma drew the initial assignment as Giannis Antetokounmpo’s primary defender, but now with Kuzma to the bench, Deni Avdija takes over – 6:41 PM

Washington Wizards @WashWizards
Close one through the first 12.

It’s 26-24 Wizards after the first quarter. Wiz lead despite having 8 TOs already. Helps they are 5-for-8 from 3PT range. – 6:37 PM

We are loving the Giannis to Grayson connection. 👌 pic.twitter.com/BThAnUiN7r6:25 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
What a find by Deni Avdija. Kuz two hand slam. – 6:24 PM

Kane Pitman @KanePitman
You think Bobby Portis was excited to get the start tonight?
He’s been in everything from scoring to blocking shots and getting deflections. It hasn’t all been totally in control but it feels like the Bucks needed a spark like this. – 6:24 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
The Wizards scored 12 points.
Then, the Bucks scored 12 points.
We’ll see if they continue to do this for the rest of the game. – 6:24 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Got to love Duke’s Grayson Allen getting the boo-birds in the DMV – 6:23 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
After going up 12-0, the #Wizards have turned it over five times and the #Bucks have now tied it up by scoring seven points off them. – 6:23 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards started tonight’s game on a 12-0 run. The Bucks have since answered with a 12-0 run. – 6:23 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Bucks answer the Wizards 12-0 run to start the game with a 12-0 run of their own.
Washington has 5 turnovers in the game’s first 7 minutes. – 6:23 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Quick timeout from Mike Budenholzer. Bucks are down, 9-0, with 9:47 left in the first quarter.
They have missed all six of the shots they’ve taken thus far tonight. – 6:16 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The rim at Capital One Arena has not been kind to the new-look #Bucks starting lineup. #Wizards out to a 9-0 start and Mike Budenholzer calls for time. – 6:14 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Wizards start the game on a 9-0 run. Milwaukee needs a timeout. – 6:14 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
The bank is always open for the Wizards at Capital One Arena – 6:14 PM

Kyle Kuzma has drawn the Giannis Antetokounmpo assignment early tonight. – 6:14 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Spencer Dinwiddie surprised himself on that 3 lol – 6:14 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Missed layup from Holiday on the first possession and a foul from Antetokounmpo on the other end. Not an ideal start for the Bucks, but the game is underway here in DC. – 6:12 PM

Capital One Arena is always a light arriving crowd, but there are a lot of fans cheering for the Bucks coming to the court with all eyes on Giannis Antetokounmpo on Greek Heritage Night. – 5:48 PM

Allen is averaging a career-high 14.0 points per game and has scored in double figures in all but one game.

#Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Grayson Allen (illness) is available tonight. Regarding Jrue Holiday potentially starting, he said they’ll make that determination later. – 4:37 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Looks like Daniel Gafford suffered some kind of right shoulder or neck stinger early in his pre-game warmup routine. He went back to the locker room looking in some discomfort trying to stretch it out. – 4:36 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Davis Bertans, who suffered an ankle sprain Monday in Atlanta, remains week-to-week, coach Wes Unseld Jr. said. – 4:31 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
The Wizards will start Spencer Dinwiddie, Bradley Beal, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Kyle Kuzma and Daniel Gafford against the NBA champion Bucks tonight, coach Wes Unseld Jr. said. No surprise there with that starting five. – 4:29 PM

Wes Unseld Jr. says Bradley Beal has joked about his 3-point shooting slump to start the season.
After the win over Grizzlies, Unseld told the team “look we finally knocked down some shots.”
Beal responded, “everybody but me.”
Unseld pre-game: “He’ll shoot his way out of it.” – 4:27 PM

Among players averaging at least 20 minutes per game, Raul Neto leads the Wizards with a 104.1 pace rating.

Anthony Gill (right calf strain) is available for the Wizards starting tonight after missing the last few weeks.
Montrezl Harrell playing until the end of the game in a blow out win vs. Memphis was because Washington only had 10 players available with the Go-Go also playing. – 3:45 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
It’s Wizards vs. Bucks tonight at The Vault. Defending champs and Giannis. Beal and MVP candidate Montrezl Harrell.

Wizards are +1 tonight hosting the Bucks.
Milwaukee is coming off a loss at home vs. Knicks and remain without Khris Middleton and Brook Lopez.
Can Bradley Beal return to All-NBA form and how do Kyle Kuzma + Deni Avdija hold up against Giannis Antetokounmpo? – 1:06 PM

Thank you God! – 12:55 PM
