Marcin Gortat scored 19 points and Bradley Beal added 17 to help the Washington Wizards rout Brazil’s Paschoalotto Bauru, 134-100, on Sunday night.

The Wizards pulled away with a 16-2 run in the second quarter. They led by 20 at intermission and had a 101-68 edge after three quarters.

After going 4-for-23 from 3-point range Friday night in a loss to New York, the Wizards found their range. They shot 57.1 percent from the field, including 43.3 percent on 3-pointers.

Drew Gooden had 15 points, Otto Porter added 12 points and Kris Humphries had 11 points and nine rebounds. Robert Day and Leo Meindl each scored 17 points for Paschoalotto Bauru, and Rafael Hettsheimeir scored 16 points.

After missing the second half on Friday, Nene, who has been bothered by a back injury, returned to the starting lineup and finished with 11 points in 16 minutes.

Wizards rookie forward Kelly Oubre Jr., who went 0-for-7 in his preseason debut on Friday, scored his first points with a second-quarter dunk. He finished with five points.

The Wizards finish their exhibition schedule with four road games, beginning Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers.
