Young broke the scoring drought with a fadeaway jumper with 4:21 left to cut the lead to 84-81.

He scored his team’s next five points, but Redd answered with four of his own, and Mbah a Moute got a putback under the hoop to fall and kept the Bucks ahead 90-86 with 2:30 minutes remaining.

Young hit one of two foul shots to cut the lead to three, and the Bucks turned the ball over on the opposite end. Young came back again, shaking Mbah a Moute for yet another successful jump shot that cut the lead to 90-89, but Redd answered with a 3-pointer, and a foul shot by Charlie Villanueva extended the lead to five.

Mike James made two free throws for Washington with 20.4 seconds left, but the Wizards were forced to foul, and Ridnour delivered, sealing the win.

Note - Backup center Etan Thomas left the game in the first quarter with a left knee strain and did not return.
