Wizards down Thunder on late shot

WASHINGTON — Bradley Beal made a jumper with 0.3 seconds left after using a pump fake to get open, and the short-handed Washington Wizards beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 Monday night.

Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City (26-8) with 29 points.

The Wizards (5-28), playing without their top two scorers, had lost 13 of their previous 14, but they also beat the Miami Heat earlier in the season. Beal and Martell Webster led the Washington with 22 points each.

Kevin Seraphin added 19 points, and Emeka Okafor had 12 points and 12 rebounds.

The Thunder missed 16 straight shots from midway through the third quarter to midway through the fourth quarter.

Durant drove through the lane for a thunderous dunk to cut Oklahoma City’s deficit to 95-94 with just more than two minutes left. Martell Webster answered with a four-point play to give the Wizards a 99-94 lead.

Then, Ibaka made a jumper, and Durant made a 3-pointer with 36 seconds left to tie the game at 99.

Durant and Russell Westbrook each scored 20 points in Oklahoma City’s last five games, but Westbrook finished with just 17 points Monday.

Serge Ibaka stepped up as Durant’s complement, scoring 26 points.

Nene (right knee tendinitis) and Jordan Crawford (sore left ankle) missed the game with injuries.

With John Wall, Trevor Booker and Cartier Martin also out, Washington had just nine players available.

Beal made a four-point play to end the third quarter, and that began an 8-0 Washington run.

  • Jeff Mullin mug 2012.jpg Rory McIlroy: There's a new tiger in town

    His father introduced him to the game when he was small, putting a golf club in his hand when he was barely past the toddler stage.
    He fell in love with it and worked hard, improving steadily. He became a terrific junior player and quickly improved.
    He was touted as the next big thing and didn’t disappoint.
    Now, at the tender age of 25, he is a multiple major champion.
    Tiger Woods? Yes, once upon a tee time. But now those words are being spoken about Rory McIlroy.
