Washington broke a short-lived two-game losing skid on Sunday with a 101-88 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers. John Wall led the charge with 22 points, 13 assists, five rebounds and a steal, with his seven turnovers serving as the lone blemish on an otherwise stellar performance. Marcin Gortat followed suit with his own double-double, posting 16 points, 10 rebounds, a steal and two blocks. Otto Porter, Jr. was not far behind with 14 points, six rebounds and a steal. Nene Hilario tallied 10 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals. The newly-acquired J.J. Hickson paced the bench with 14 points, five rebounds and two steals. It was an excellent evening from the field overall from the Wizards, who were able to garner a 54.2 percent success rate on their 72 shots. The Wizards remain in the fourth spot of the Eastern Conference’s Southeast Division, and are currently trailing the eighth-seeded Detroit Pistons by 2.5 games. They’ve came victorious in six of their last eight games, including three straight away from home.
Golden State prevailed over the Philadelphia 76ers in their latest contest, 117-105. A game that initially was suppose to be a blowout for the Warriors, considering the diametrically opposite records of both teams, didn’t turned out that way. Coach Kerr received another excellent effort from Klay Thompson, who collected 40 points, two rebounds and a block. It was notably the second straight game in which he’s hit the 40-point mark. Stephen Curry was calmer in comparison, contributing 20 points, eight assists, three rebounds and four steals. Draymond Green pitched in with one of his regular triple-doubles, gathering 13 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, a steal and three blocks. Harrison Barnes put up 10 points, two rebounds, an assist and a steal, while Mareese Speights paced the reserves with 17 points, seven boards and three assists. The Warriors are still the best in the Western Conference. They’ve now rattled off four straight wins since being dominated by the Spurs a little over two weeks ago, 87-79, and are still perfect 35-0 at home this season.
