Open Thread and Contest: Game 30

Real quick, because I'm heading out the door.

Regular Season Game 30
Wizards (17-12) at Bucks (15-15)
Bradley Center
8:30 PM
CW50

Previous Results: Wizards 116, Bucks 111.

The Bucks have been on a roll recently, and like the Wizards, they're doing it with offense.  The Bucks are getting great production out of their wings, especially Maurice Williams, who has emerged as a great second option to Michael Redd.  The Bucks are the one team that will make you pay for bad perimeter defense.  

Unfortunately, the Bucks still aren't playing great defense.  Like the Wizards, they are only allowing a below-average PER to one position, and they're getting torched by opposing point guards (20.6 PER).  This bodes well for Gilbert Arenas, who should go off against them.

According to Carter's blog, Etan Thomas is going to be out for longer than expected with that ankle injury.  For the second time this year, the Wizards have a key injured player missing more time than originally thought.  This will leave Washington thin in the frontcourt, and while they've survived so far, they're going to need Thomas somewhere along the line.  

Here are your lines:

Wizards at Bucks: Bucks by 2
Over/Under on Big 3: 70.4 points
