The Wizards shot a blistering 62.5 percent from the field. John Wall was the only starter who didn't hit over 50 percent of his attempts, and he went 5-of-10 for 13 points and 10 assists.

Marcin Gortat scored 22 on 10-of-13 shooting and he wasn't even the hottest shooter on the team. Bradley Beal missed only one shot, scoring 19 on 7-of-8 from the field.
