Wizards 124, Cavaliers 112
CLEVELAND — Bradley Beal scored 36 points and weary Washington, overcoming an overtime loss and early-morning arrival in town, defeated Cleveland.
The Wizards started slowly after not getting in until around 4 a.m. following an OT defeat in Miami on Wednesday, but took over late in the first quarter and pulled away.
Cleveland has lost six in a row and 11 of 13. The Cavaliers were coming off a 20-point home loss to New York and struggled against the Wizards, who are also at the bottom of the Eastern Conference.
Mavericks 133, Trail Blazers 125
PORTLAND, Ore. — Luka Doncic scored 27 points to go with nine assists and six rebounds, and Dallas made 22 3-pointers to defeat Portland.
Doncic scored 20 of his points in the first half, and had plenty of help in the win. The Mavericks had six players make at least three 3-pointers, and it was the sixth time this season the Mavericks made 20 3s, with Seth Curry and Jalen Brunson leading the way with four each.
The 43 combined 3-pointers made by Dallas and Portland tied an NBA record.
