John Wall had 29 points and 11 assists, leading the Washington Wizards to a 122-108 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Bradley Beal added 25 points and Marcin Gortat had 12 to go with 14 rebounds for Washington, who also set a season high for points in their fourth win in five NBA games.

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 24 points to lead the Pistons.

Andre Drummond added 13 points and 12 rebounds on a night when the teams combined for 11 players in double figures

The Pistons began the day as the league's leader in fewest turnovers per game and only had nine against Washington.

But the league's second-best defensive team trailed most of the evening and by double digits for almost all of the second half.

Orlando defeated Brooklyn 118-111 to snap a six-game losing streak with Nikola Vucevic scoring 21 points and picking up 10 rebounds.

In a game that had been close throughout, Orlando made the big shots down the stretch to pull away.

Serge Ibaka had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and D.J. Augustin scored 17 for the Magic, who shot 40 percent from the field.

Brook Lopez had 22 points and five blocked shots for the Nets before fouling out with 20.1 seconds to play.
