Magical Pixels, Wizards vs. Bucks: Washington takes care of business, secure winning record

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Wizards secured a winning record and held onto the sixth seed with a 104-91 win over the moribund Bucks. Bradley Beal led the way with 26 points, but #WizardsTwitter wasn't too happy that he and other starters were still playing with the game in hand.

The Wizards did what they needed to do, defeating a terrible Bucks team, 104-91, to secure their first winning record since 2008 and maintain their one-game lead on the Bobcats for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Bradley Beal had a very good game 26 points and five assists on 12-of-22 shooting. John Wall chipped in 15 points and eight assists, and Marcin Gortat recorded 13 points to go with 13 rebounds. See below for a sampling of #WizardsTwitter's collective outage over Randy Wittman keeping all three on the floor in the waning moments despite the game being well in-hand.

But that alright, because WOOT WINNING BASKETBALL!!
