Kyle Lowry scored 23 points and the streaking Toronto Raptors won in overtime for the second consecutive night after losing a large second-half lead, defeating the Washington Wizards 120-116 on Saturday.

Lou Williams added 19 points and Amir Johnson scored 17 for the Raptors, who tied a season high with their sixth straight victory.

John Wall, battling migraines and a sprained right ankle, was a game-time decision for Washington. He started and led all scorers with 28 points and had 12 assists. Bradley Beal added 26 points.

Lowry scored seven points in overtime for Toronto, which squandered a 17-point, second-half lead Friday night before outlasting the Nets.

With a win before a sellout crowd at the Verizon Center, Washington (31-17) could have pulled into a tie with Toronto (33-15) for second place in the Eastern Conference.
