SAN ANTONIO — The Washington Wizards ended a 22-game losing streak to the Spurs in San Antonio with a 127-106 victory Monday night.
Deni Avdija had a career-high 25 points, Bradley Beal had 21 points, and Kristaps Porzingis had 17 points and nine rebounds after a fast start for the Wizards, who had last won here on Dec. 11, 1999.
Washington’s starting lineup that night featured Mitch Richmond, Juwan Howard, Rod Strickland, Isaac Austin and Michael Smith. The then-reigning champion Spurs boasted third-year big man Tim Duncan and had just begun the first of a three-year wait for second-round pick Manu Ginobili.
Twelve total players in Monday’s game, seven for the Spurs and five for the Wizards, were not yet born the last time Washington triumphed in San Antonio.
Washington has won six straight for its longest winning streak since a six-game run in 2015.
