- Associated Press - Thursday, February 18, 2016

Marcin Gortat had 22 points and 10 rebounds and John Wall added 17 points and 11 assists to help the Washington Wizards beat the Utah Jazz, 103-89, on Thursday night.

Rescheduled from Jan. 23 because of a snowstorm, the game was first of three in three days for Washington following the all-star break.

Bradley Beal and Nene each scored 16 points for the Wizards.

Gordon Hayward scored 19 points and Rodney Hood added 18 points for Utah (26-27), which is percentage points behind the Houston Rockets for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

Washington (24-28) led the entire second half, sealing it with a 15-4 fourth-quarter run.

Gortat scored seven points in that stretch, converting a three-point play off Wall’s bounce pass feed right before Beal’s floater made it 102-83.

The Jazz committed a season-high 23 turnovers.
