WASHINGTON (AP) - There were boos early and at the end for the winless Washington Wizards, who dropped to a franchise-worst 0-9 with a 96-89 loss to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.
Indiana's David West scored 13 of his season-best 30 points in the fourth quarter, and Roy Hibbert broke out of a slump with 20 points and 12 rebounds.
Still without point guard John Wall, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft, and starting center Nene - and no one seems to be sure when either injured player will make his season debut - the Wizards are the only team in the NBA without a victory. They started 0-8 a year ago, the club's previous worst opening to a season.
They were led Monday by rookie Bradley Beal's 18 points, 17 coming in the second half.
