Recap

The Wizards were down by seven entering the fourth quarter but won the final frame by 14 to finish the season series sweep over the Nets, 101-94. The Nets were previously 33-1 when leading after three quarters but the combination of Drew Gooden, John Wall and staunch defense led to a comeback victory. The Wizards defense did not allow a basket in the final 6:22 and the Nets ended up allowing over 100 points for the first time since February. John Wall scored 33 points and Drew Gooden scored a season-high 21 points. Bradley Beal scored 15 points in a game it was uncertain if he would play in after his scary injury on Friday night in Orlando. Marcus Thornton paced the Nets with 19 points in the loss.

Key Moment

With about two and a half to play and the game tied, the Wizards offense looked to have stalled. Drew Gooden stepped up as the shot clock was expiring and drilled a three with a hand in his face to give the Wizards the three point lead which they would never look back from.

Player of the Game

John Wall put in a magnificent performance, scoring 33 points on 10/15 shooting, including 4/6 from three and 9/10 from the free throw line. He added six assists, four boards and two steals.

Key Number

60%-31%. The Wizards just about doubled the Nets shooting percentage in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Nets by 14 in the final frame.

Unsung Hero

Drew Gooden seemingly couldn't miss late, scoring 11 of his season-high 21 points in the fourth quarter to go along with a season-high nine rebounds.
