Recap

The Wizards trailed by nine entering the fourth, but outscored the Pistons by 16 in the final frame to get back to .500 with a 106-99 win. The Wizards opened the fourth on an 11-0 run to take the lead just three minutes into the fourth. The Pistons would tie it up once but the Wizards would never give the Pistons the lead back. The Wizards shot 50% from the field compared to the Pistons 43.9%. John Wall led all scorers with 29 points while Trevor Ariza had a very complete game, scoring 15 points, grabbing 11 boards and getting six steals.

Key Moment

The key sequence was with just under a minute to go and the Wizards up by four. Marcin Gortat swatted a Josh Smith attempt at the hoop and then Wall hit a tough jumper at the shot clock buzzer to put the Wizards up six and basically seal the game.

Player of the Game

John Wall was once again the instigator for the Wizards success going for 29 points and seven assists. He scored the 29 points on 7/15 shooting from the field and was 14/15 from the charity stripe. He also has now scored 20+ points in seven straight games, a career high for him.

Key Number
