With six different players scoring in double figures, the Wizards cruised to a 114-101 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night at Verizon Center.
Jordan Crawford led the team with 19 points on 7-10 shooting off the bench, but this one was about the team. The Wizards dished out 29 assists, with the leading passer being John Wall with five. The ball was moving around throughout the game and everyone was involved right from the start.
The Wizards jumped out to an early lead and although the Wolves would make a run to keep it close, the second half was rarely in doubt as the Wizards led by double digits for nearly the entire half. John Wall continued his stellar play since making his return two weeks ago and finished with 14 points and five assists, including an acrobatic spin move and reverse layup that had the crowd in awe. Bradley Beal also had another strong performance, finishing with 16 points, while Martell Webster put in 13 against his former team on 3-4 from behind the arc. Kevin Seraphin finished the game with 10 points.
The Wizards shot 58% from the field and 47% from 3-point range.
They have now won four straight home games and go for their fifth on Saturday night vs. the Bulls at Verizon Center (7pm).
