At 88 points, the Nets — coming off a double-overtime home loss to Memphis on Friday night, had their lowest-scoring game of season. It also was the lowest total the Wizards have allowed.

The Wizards took the lead midway through the first quarter and used an 11-0 run to start the second half and take an 53-39 lead with 9:09 to play in the third quarter. They sealed it with a 12-0 run in the fourth quarter, and led 93-73 with 5:09 to play.
