Latest Emeka Okafor Items
Bradley Beal scored 24 points in his return to the lineup as Washington moved into a tie with Toronto for 10th place in the Eastern Conference.
The third overall pick in last June's draft, and the East rookie of the month in December and January, Beal scored 20 or more for the 11th time.
A day after spending 2½ hours at the dentist to fix his two chipped front teeth — parts of which apparently became embedded in Cartier Martin's forehead — Beal landed hard on the court while his Washington Wizards were trying to hold on to a lead.
Bradley Beal scored 21 points, and Emeka Okafor had 17 points, 11 rebounds and made the go-ahead free throw with 5.2 seconds remaining to help the Washington Wizards overcome the Houston Rockets' 3-point barrage for a 105-103 win on Saturday night.
Nick Young scored 18 points in his first game against his old team, Jrue Holiday had 21 and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Washington Wizards 92-84 Wednesday night.
Isaiah Thomas made a floater with a second to play, capping a seesaw finish as the Sacramento Kings broke a four-game losing streak with a 96-94 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday night.
Emeka Okafor bags 15 points and 16 rebounds to help surging Washington. John Wall and Nene each scored 16 points for Washington, which has won consecutive games for the second time this season.
In the visitors' locker room at United Center, Nene sat, as usual, with his feet soaking in ice water. The Wizards had just lost to the Chicago Bulls, and Nene watched as two French-speaking reporters interviewed Kevin Seraphin in his native language, a common occurrence during Washington's road games.
Emeka Okafor knows what it's like to be on a young and struggling team. The second pick in the 2004 NBA draft, Okafor was the first selection by the expansion Charlotte Bobcats.
