In perhaps their best game of the season, the Washington Wizards lit up the scoreboard in defeating the Portland Trail Blazers, 124-109, on the road. Nick Young was on fire in leading the Wizards with 35 points, while John Wall scored 29 and Jordan Crawford had 21 points.
Washington shot a scorching 60 percent from the field in the win and hit nine of 17 three-pointers, with Young hitting seven of eight. The Blazers kept fighting back to try to make it a game, but Young, Wall and Crawford kept hitting shots to keep the Blazers at bay.
Washington moves to 7-22 on the year, while Portland falls to 15-14. The Blazers were forced to play without star LaMarcus Aldridge, who left the game after turning his ankle very early in the first quarter.
