Antawn Jamison scored all of his game-high 24 points in the first three quarters and spent most of the fourth enjoying the rout from the bench.

Antonio Daniels finished with 14 points, five rebounds and five assists.

However, although Jordan said Daniels was OK after the game, Daniels appeared to have tweaked his knee, the same one that recently forced him out of seven games.

“I’m OK,” said Daniels, moving gingerly in the locker room.

Caron Butler finished with 13 points, seven rebounds and seven assists.

All 10 Wizards players who played scored, and eight players finished with at least eight points.

The Wizards held an opponent to fewer than 78 points for the second time in three games. Before losing to the Pistons, the Wizards blasted Miami 96-74.

Wizards report

Last night at Bradley Center in Milwaukee


Gilbert Arenas said on his blog that he won’t return in mid-February, which was the schedule the team set when he had knee surgery Nov. 17.

“I know February was the date that I told, but now I’m thinking March 15 is the day,” Arenas wrote. “I don’t want to come back and be limpy.”


The Wizards held the Bucks to 10 points in the first quarter, and the game was no contest the rest of the way.
