Recap

The Wizards bounced back from a tough loss in Minnesota on Friday night to blow out the Pistons at home, 106-82. The 24 point win is the Wizards largest margin of victory on the year. The Pistons could not get closer than 18 in the second half as the Wizards cruised to victory. John Wall led the way with 20 points and 11 assists as all five starters finished in double figures for the Wizards. As a team, the Wizards shot 50% compared with the Pistons' 40%.

Key Moment

With about five minutes to go in the first half, a Monroe layup cut the Wizards lead to seven. That would be the last time the Pistons would score before the break as the Wizards closed on a 14-0 run to go up by 21 at the half.

Player of the Game

Thanks to the big win, John Wall played just 30 minutes but it was more than enough for him to do damage. He finished with 20 points and 11 assists (against just two turnovers) for his tenth double-double of the year. He also has now scored 20+ points in six straight games, a career high for him.

Key Number

34. The Wizards had 34 assists on their 43 baskets, marking a season high in assists for the team.

Unsung Hero

Trevor Booker started, played 32 minutes and was very solid on both ends of the court. He finished with 10 points and nine boards, including five of those on the offensive end. He led the Wizards in rebounding on a night when they outrebounded the Pistons' big front line, 46-38.
