Washington (15-15), meanwhile, has played just four road games since the end of November, splitting those contests.
The Wizards ran into a hot opponent at home on Wednesday, falling 106-93 to a Detroit club which won its 10th straight game and led by double digits for the entire second half.
"I told our team, if this is a test - which it is when you play against the best team in the league; especially right now, they're the best team - then you have to see how you respond to them," Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said. "And if this was a test, I give us a C or a C-minus."
On the bright side for the Wizards, guard Antonio Daniels returned Wednesday after missing seven games due to a sprained knee and scored a season-high 18 points.
Without Daniels, the Wizards had averaged just 94.7 points - more than five below their season average of 100.0. In 15 games with Daniels as the starter before his injury, Washington scored 105.9 points per game.
This is the first meeting of the season between the teams. Washington has won four of five against the Bucks in what has been a high-scoring series recently. Both teams have reached 100 points in each of the last five meetings, while the winning team has totaled 116 or more in four of those games.
The Bucks lost four in a row before they beat Miami on Wednesday. Lets hope that this is any easy win for our Wizards, who need to get above, and stay above .500
