Notebook: Wizards 96, Cavaliers 83

THE FACT: The Wizards held Cleveland to just 31 second-half points.

THE LEAD: All-Star point guard John Wall collected game highs of 21 points and nine assists as the Washington Wizards beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 Sunday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Shooting guard Bradley Beal scored 17 points and center Marcin Gortat had 13 points and a game-high 13 rebounds for the Wizards (28-28), who held the lead for the final 3½ quarters. Small forward Luol Deng led the Cavaliers (22-36) with 17 points, while All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving added 15 points and five assists. The teams split their four-game season series with the road team winning each contest.

QUOTABLE: "Any time that Kyrie [Irving] and I play, guys around the league look at it as a marquee matchup. They're going to keep tuning in to watch us for a long time. Everyone wants to know who the best guy in the Eastern Conference is."
-- Wizards point guard John Wall

THE STAT: The Wizards are now 14-14 both at home and on the road, -- although 11-6 away from Verizon Center since Dec. 16 -- and one of just four Eastern Conference teams without a losing road mark. "We've struggled on the road the last couple of years, but we've managed to take that next step," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "It's not an easy one, but the guys have taken the challenge to heart of being better on the road." In 2012-2013, Washington had the second-worst road record in the NBA at 7-34.

TURNING POINT: After Deng converted a three-point play to pull the Cavaliers within 73-72, Wizards power forward Al Harrington ended the third quarter on a personal 5-0 run. The 16-year pro made a driving layup, then buried a long 3-pointer to give Washington a 78-72 advantage. Cleveland never got closer than four points the rest of the way. Harrington underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery on Dec. 9 and missed 45 games, but returned to action Saturday with a 33-second stint against New Orleans.

QUOTABLE II: "Al [Harrington] gave us a big lift tonight by making a couple of shots. He was panting like a dog out there, but his [seven] minutes were big. He came out with a lot of energy and provided veteran leadership."
-- Wizards coach Randy Wittman

HOT: Wizards small forward Trevor Ariza, who had 15 points and 10 rebounds, is averaging 16.4 points and 9.0 boards over the last five games. ... Washington held Cleveland to a 9-for-35 shooting performance in the second half. ... Wall banked home a fadeaway 30-footer at the second-quarter buzzer. ... Cavaliers center Spencer Hawes rang up 16 points and 12 rebounds in 32 strong minutes off the bench. It was his first home game since being acquired Thursday from the 76ers in exchange for small forward Earl Clark and center Henry Sims.

NOT: Wizards power forward Nene suffered a sprained left knee midway through the third quarter on a knee-on-knee collision with Hawes. Wittman said he will undergo an MRI when the team returns home Monday. ... Washington rookie power forward Otto Porter dressed, but did not play for the 32nd time this season. ... Cavaliers center Tyler Zeller started but logged only 14 minutes before being benched in favor of Hawes. ... Irving and Cleveland shooting guard Jarrett Jack combined to make two field goals on 14 attempts in the second half.

QUOTABLE III: "There are so many things we have to figure out -- new pieces, guys missing -- but we're not going to use that as an excuse. Time is of the essence right now, especially when we want to do something special here."
-- Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving

GOOD MOVE: Cavaliers coach Mike Brown called a full timeout 31 seconds into the game after the Wizards took a 4-0 lead, then called another less than seven minutes later when Washington scored 12 straight points to go up 20-13. "It was almost like we were reacting to what they were doing, instead of us being aggressive," he said. "To a certain degree, they set the tone of the game." Despite Brown's strongly-worded pleas, Cleveland lost and fell five full games out of the final Eastern Conference playoff position with 25 contests to play.

BAD MOVE: The Cavaliers continue to play without their top two shooting guards in C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain) and Dion Waiters (left knee hyperextension), but acting general manager David Griffin used their open roster spot to sign rookie power forward Arinze Onuaku to a 10-day contract Saturday. The lack of backcourt depth forced Brown to play Irving and Jack for 38 minutes apiece against Washington, while giving rookie point guard Matthew Dellavedova the other 20. That trio combined for 23 points on 10-for-33 shooting.

NOTABLE: Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao (back soreness) missed his sixth straight game, while Waiters sat out his third in a row and Miles was sidelined for his second consecutive contest. "I don't have a timetable for when they'll be back," Brown said. ... Wizards point guard Andre Miller ranks ninth in NBA history with 8,062 assists. The 37-year-old floor general spent his first three seasons with Cleveland after being chosen in the first round of the 1999 NBA Draft. "I wish I could have spent my whole career with the Cavaliers," Miller said. "I met so many nice people here, which is why it's always great to come back to Cleveland and visit." ... The Cavaliers are 11-12 since acquiring Deng from the Bulls on Jan. 7.

UP NEXT: For the Wizards, Tuesday vs. Orlando, Thursday @ Toronto, Saturday @ Philadelphia. For the Cavaliers, Tuesday vs. Toronto, Wednesday @ Oklahoma City, Friday vs. Utah.
