WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall scored 17 points, Rasual Butler had 15 and the Washington Wizards broke a five-game skid, coasting to a 114-77 victory over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.
Playing without starting guard Bradley Beal, who sat out with an injured right big toe, Washington led throughout. The 37-point margin of victory was its largest of the season.
The Nets, who had won three straight, were led by Brook Lopez with 19.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman implored his team to start aggressively.
