As poorly as the Pacers played, the Wizards didn’t truly pull away until late in the third quarter. Trevor Ariza and Martell Webster hit 3-pointers in a 10-0 run that made the score 77-56 early in the fourth. Ariza finished just 2 for 12 from the field, and Bradley Beal was 2 for 13.

“We guarded our butts off,” Beal said. “We didn’t necessarily shoot it too well, but we definitely defended.”

NOTES: Beal played 35 minutes despite suffering a hip pointer in Wednesday’s loss to the Phoenix Suns. … Al Harrington accounted for all of the points in a 10-0 run by the Wizards over 2½ minutes in the second quarter.
