Recap

The Wizards pulled out a 105-101 overtime victory in Orlando, but the celebration was muted as Bradley Beal had to be carried off the floor late with an injury. John Wall sparked a late comeback at the end of regulation, as he scored eight points in the final two minutes, including a huge three with 10 seconds to go to force OT. John Wall (21p/11a), Marcin Gortat (19p/14r), Trevor Ariza (21p/11r) and Trevor Booker (11p/11r) all finished with double-doubles. Bradley Beal added 20 points as the starters scored 92 of the team's 105 points. For Orlando, Tobias Harris came off the bench to score 21 and Aaron Afflalo chipped in 18 in the loss.

Key Moment

With just over a minute to go in overtime, the Wizards had the ball down by one. Jameer Nelson picked off Wall's pass and looked to have an easy fast break bucket when Beal flew out of nowhere to get the chase down block. Wall grabbed the rebound, pushed it up court to Ariza who knocked down the triple to give the Wizards the lead which they would never relinquish.

Player of the Game

John Wall came up so big to save the game at the end of regulation that he gets the MVP on a night when all five Wizards' starters had big nights. Wall hit two threes and was fouled attempting another one in the final two minutes to send the game to overtime. He finished with 21 points shooting 7/18 from the field and 4/6 from three to go along with 11 assists and five rebounds.

Key Number

4. Four Wizards finished with double-doubles (Wall, Ariza, Gortat, Booker) for the the first time since 2009.

Unsung Hero

Trevor Booker shot the ball well and helped Washington control the boards, finishing with 11 points on 5/9 shooting and 11 rebounds.
