Last night at Bradley Center in Milwaukee

SEEN AND HEARD

Although it’s not widely known, Milwaukee guard Mo Williams is the source of inspiration for Gilbert Arenas’ Hibachi terminology.

Brendan Haywood gave Williams that nickname when the Bucks guard went for a career-high 35 against the Wizards, including the game-winning 3-pointer, on Dec. 2, 2005.

Williams is having a breakout season, averaging a career-high 17.6 points this season. Most recently, he ended Gilbert Arenas’ two-week reign as the Eastern Conference player of the week after averaging 25.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 6.7 assists last week.

“Mo Williams has pretty much been the catalyst for this team,” Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said before the game.

BY THE NUMBERS

102 Points scored by the Wizards, marking the first time they failed to score at least 106 in a game since Chicago held them to 94 on Dec. 2.

KEYS TO THE GAME

The Bucks opened the fourth quarter on a 27-7 run to go ahead 109-92 with a little less than four minutes left in the game.
