NBA Roundup: Washington Wizards overturn a 17-point deficit to beat the Los Angeles Lakers in overtime

The Washington Wizards extended their win streak to five games after inflicting a painful defeat on the Lakers in a 127-124 overtime win on Monday night at STAPLES Center.

Bradley Beal scored a game-high 33 points while Russell Westbrook played one of his best games of the season, finishing with 32 points, 14 rebounds, and nine assists. It was the second time this season that Beal and Westbrook each surpassed 30 points in the same game, combining for 65 points, 21 rebounds, 15 assists, shooting 51.0% from the field.

The pair also became the first Wizards teammates to total at least 30 points, five rebounds, and five assists in the same game since 2004.

Beal, although grew into the game as it progressed was a bright spot for the Wizards’ offense in the opening minutes, scoring 11 of the team’s first 21 points. The Wizards also had players like Rui Hachimura scoring 15 points and Robin Lopez adding 13 off the bench.

It was a dramatic match that saw the Wizards overturn a 17 points deficit to force overtime after LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma each missed shots to win the match.

James finished with 31 points with 13 assists and nine rebounds, while Montrezl Harrell added 26 off the bench as the Lakers lost three consecutive games for the first time this season.
