    OTTO Porter’s career game carried the Wizards despite an early injury to Bradley Beal and another late ejection to John Wall as Washington dealt the struggling Boston Celtics a 25-point drubbing, 118-93, at the Verizon Center on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time).

    Porter scored a personal-best 34 points on 14-of-19 shooting and three triples, but also led the Wizards defense that held the Celtics to just eight first quarter points, en route to a 26-point lead at the end of the period.

    Beal left the game after playing just 11 minutes due to hurt hamstring, and Wall was ejected midway through the fourth quarter after a Flagrant-2 foul on Marcus Smart. But the Wizards held on to their lead, which never dipped below 15.

    Wall added 19 points while reserves Trey Burke and Marcus Thornton had 18 and 16, respectively, to help Washington snap a two-game losing skid and end up with a 2-5 record.

    Isaiah Thomas led Boston, who were still without injured starters Al Horford and Jae Crowder, with 23 points. Avery Bradley had 21 markers while Smart had 20 off the bench but the Celtics stumbled to their third straight loss after a 3-1 start.
