Posted Sunday July 15, 2012 12:52AM

The Washington Wizards (1-1) used two scoring runs in the second quarter to pull away from the Houston Rockets (1-1) for a 76-70 win to close out Saturday's action at the at the 2012 NBA Summer League. The Wizards distanced themselves from the Rockets with help from scoring stretches of 8-2 and 16-4 runs in the second although the latter had a big run of their own at the end of the game.

Washington never trailed in the contest after scoring the game's first points. The Wizards pushed out to a 15-7 lead before Houston briefly caught fire and pulled within two, 17-15, with the aid of an 8-2 run of its own.

With the lead down to two at the start of the second, the Wizards scored eight of the next 10 tallies to push out to another eight-point lead. Houston then cut the deficit to five, but Washington's offense cast a spell on its opponent and rendered it helpless in the final 4:12 of the half, as they extended its lead to 17.

The scoring explosion in the game's second quarter for Washington was a primarily a result of nine made free throws and Chris Singleton and Shelvin Mack, who had seven and six points, respectively. Jan Vesely, Tomas Satoransky and Steven Gray all added four points apiece.

The second half saw Washington extend its lead to as much as 25 points, 73-48, with 5:40 remaining in the game. However, Houston turned things around in the final 5:25 with a 22-3 run to pull within six before the affair went final.

Houston's Jeremy Lamb had a game-high 26 points on 8-for-15 shooting. Lamb had nine points come from behind the arc and seven from the free-throw line. He was joined in double figures by Terrence Jones and his 16 points.

Washington had a quartet of players reach double digits, and it was led by a 14-point night from Bradley Beal. Mack and Satoransky finished with 11 each, while Singleton had 10.
