Wall put the Wizards in front with a jumper with 1:26 remaining in the contest, but Kevin Martin drilled a 3-pointer on the other end to put the visitors in front.
The Wizards took the shot clock down on their next possession, and on a broken play, Wall swung a pass to Martell Webster for a contested triple and a 100-98 Washington lead.
Bradley Beal and Nene scored 25 and 20 points, respectively, and put the game away with a set of free throws in the final seconds.

The loss spoiled yet another terrific effort from Kevin Love, who tallied 25 points, 11 rebounds and four assists.
