Crawford's 3 gives Wizards 98-95 win over Blazers

Nets beat Knicks to split season series

 

PORTLAND, Ore. — Jordan Crawford hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer and the Washington Wizards dogpiled on the court to celebrate a 98-95 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday night.
 
Nicolas Batum had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his first career triple-double, but the Blazers lost their season-high sixth straight.
 
Crawford's fadeaway and a corner 3-pointer gave the Wizards an 82-75 lead, their largest to that point, with just more than 7 minutes left in the game.
 
Rookie Damian Lillard's dunk pulled the Blazers to 91-90 with 2:21 left. Former Blazer Martell Webster and John Wall answered with consecutive dunks, but Lillard added a layup and Wesley Matthews hit a 3-pointer to tie it with 7.9 seconds left.
 
Crawford's game winner was reviewed but it didn't stop the Wizards' celebration.
 
The Wizards (9-30) have won four of their last six games — which coincides with the return of Wall, who missed the team's first 33 games with a stress injury in his left kneecap.
 
In his first five games, Wall averaged 15.6 points and 7.6 assists. Playing off the bench against the Blazers, he had six points and two assists.
 
Nene and Webster each had a season-high 24 points to lead the Wizards, who won just their third on the road this season.
 
Washington opened the season with a 12 game losing streak — the franchise's worst-ever start — that was snapped by an 84-82 victory at home against the Blazers.
 
The Wizards were coming off a 94-87 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.
 
LaMarcus Aldridge had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Portland (20-21), which lost their fourth straight at the Rose Garden after a nine-game winning streak.
 
Nene scored 10 points in the first four minutes for the Wizards, who led by as many as seven points early. The Blazers went ahead 21-19 on Lillard's 20-foot pull-up jumper, but couldn't hang on to the lead and Washington finished the first quarter ahead 34-31. Nene had 17 points in the first period alone.
