WASHINGTON (AP) — John Wall scored 33 points, Drew Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and the Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 101-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night.
Gooden’s 3-pointer broke a 94-94 tie with 2:37 left. Trevor Ariza then scored off an offensive rebound with 44 seconds left and Wall capped it with dunk.
The Nets, who went the final 6:22 without a field goal, were led by Marcus Thornton’s 19 points. Joe Johnson added 16 and Paul Pierce had 15.
Washington completed a sweep of the season series (3-0) and moved ahead of Brooklyn for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Trailing 82-72 early in the fourth, the Wizards went on a 15-4 run keyed by Gooden (8 of 11 from the field) and Al Harrington.
