USA Today
Andy BaileyFeatured Columnist IVOctober 12, 2016

In a game that was all about offense, offense and more offense, the Washington Wizards (6-8) topped the Los Angeles Lakers (7-8) 116-11 at the Verizon Center.

Nene scored a career-high 30 points and John Wall went off for a game-high 31 points and nine assists.

The Wizards got pretty much everything they wanted throughout the game as the Lakers seemed to be playing defense-optional basketball. Washington shot 52.9 percent from the field and turned the ball over just 10 times.

The Lakers were able to hang tight because of three-point shooting and a huge fourth quarter from Jordan Farmar. The team was 13-of-28 from downtown and Farmar finished with 22 points on 9-of-11 shooting. He also had eight assists.
