    The Milwaukee Bucks never faced a deficit against the Washington Wizards Saturday.

    MILWAUKEE -- Charlie Villanueva scored 25 points and Richard Jefferson added 22 to lift the Milwaukee Bucks to an easy 109-93 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night.

    Milwaukee never trailed, opened up a double-digit lead in the opening minutes and was never seriously threatened to win its fourth straight over Washington and avoid losing three in a row for the first time since early December.
    With a month and a half left in the season, Milwaukee (29-33) surpassed its win total in each of the last two years and has the most victories since going 40-42 in 2005-06 and reaching the postseason.
    While the Bucks remain four games under .500, they control their playoff hopes this year by continuing to hold the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference.
