Game Recap: Wizards 89 - Pacers 96

Your browser does not support iframes.

The Wizards battled back from another double-digit 2nd half deficit and pulled the game as close to one point, but could never get over that last hump and fell 96-89 to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night at Verizon Center.

Bradley Beal fueled the second half charge, scoring 17 of his 18 points in that frame including three 3-pointers, but the team could not get enough stops down the stretch, as David West's game-high 30 points were too much for the Wizards to handle.

It was another strong effort from the Wizards bench, who scored 68 of the team's 89 points, but the start of the game did the Wizards in as they fell behind 28-13 in the first quarter and could never come all the way back.

Beal led the team with his 18, Kevin Seraphin chipped in with 13, Jordan Crawford added 11, and Shaun Livingston finished with 10.

Another tough loss for a young team that still finds itself searching for its first win of the year. They'll get their next chance Wednesday night in Atlanta when they take on the Hawks.
