Bradley Beal set a new career high with 28 points and the Wizards picked up their first win in Milwaukee since 2009, 102-90.

It was also Washington's first road win in the eastern conference.

The Wizards had a sluggish start trailing after the first quarter but Washington would outscore the Bucks 26-15 in the 2nd and never look back. The Bucks cut their deficit to six late in the fourth but that's as close as they would get.

Beal once again came off the bench and gave a sloppy Wizards team a spark the first half scoring 16. The rookie did have an awkward fall in the fourth and Wizard fans held their breath as it looked like Beal was clutching his wrist. However Beal stayed in the game and if he is still healthy, look for him to rejoin the starting lineup sometime soon.

Milwaukee was playing without NBA blocks leader and former VCU Ram Larry Sanders. So the Bucks were really in trouble when big man Samuel Dalembert had his fifth foul with over six minutes in the third quarter.  The Wizards big men took advantage.

Nene had a very impressive shooting night going 10-13 from the field scoring 21. He also managed to snag 13 rebounds. Emeka Oakafor also chipped in another double double with 12 points and ten rebounds

Despite making some mental mistakes down the stretch John Wall still looked very impressive. Monday night Wall had 14 points and ten assists and didn't seem bothered by a talented Milwaukee back court.

The Wiz kids will go for their fifth straight win Wednesday night in Detroit.
