Wizards’ Butler gets happy homecoming
MILWAUKEE | Caron Butler finally had a happy homecoming.
After experiencing either serious injury or losses in trips to his home state of Wisconsin since 2007, Butler on Wednesday night left Bradley Center with both a victory and his health.
The Wizards won their second straight game 109-97 thanks greatly to 25 points and 10 rebounds from Butler, who knocked down a fourth-quarter Milwaukee run-stopping jumper to tie the score at 86-86 and then scored once again to help the Wizards put the Bucks away.
Antawn Jamison added 23 points and had 10 rebounds, and Gilbert Arenas had 18 points for Washington.
The Wizards — winners of consecutive games only twice this season — were coming off of a 105-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.
The Wizards outscored the Sixers 33-19 in the fourth quarter of that game, and in that quarter, Gilbert Arenas led the way with 12 points. Arenas & Co. remained hot Wednesday night against the Bucks, taking a 37-27 lead after the first quarter. Washington opened the game by shooting an impressive 65.2 percent from the field in the opening period, and Arenas set the pace with 13 points.
