Portland
Washington

[WASHINGTON] — The Washington Wizards played host to the Portland Trail Blazers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 125 to 124 Wiz victory. The win bumps Washington's record up to 41-24 on the season, while the loss drags Portland's down to 28-36. More than just a victory, the performance could serve as a boost for the Wizards. Having scored early and often against their opponents this time out, the club will look to capitalize on their momentum heading into their next contest.

On this night it was John Wall leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 39 points, 2 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 blocks and 0 steals in 40 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Ask anybody, however - Wall included - and the most important part is that the Wizards walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Joining Wall in the winning effort was Markieff Morris. Had it not been for Morris rounding out the Wiz's attack with 13 points, 11 rebounds and 3 assists of his own, we may have been looking at a different outcome.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Wizards walking away victorious was Washington's ability to limit Portland's offensive output. By holding the Blazers to less than they usually produce the Wizards made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Wiz will be a date with the Minnesota Timberwolves while the visiting Trail Blazers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the Phoenix Suns.
