    WASHINGTON — John Wall scored 30 points, Bradley Beal added 22 and the Washington Wizards handed Brooklyn its sixth straight loss, beating the Nets, 102-88, on Saturday night (Sunday, Manila time).

    Markieff Morris rebounded from a 1-for-10 shooting night on Friday in a loss at Philadelphia to score 20 points on 9-for-12 shooting. He had 15 points in the fourth quarter.

    Allen Crabbe led Brooklyn with 14 points. The losing streak is the Nets' longest since an eight-game skid in February.

    At 88 points, the Nets — coming off a double-overtime home loss to Memphis on Friday night, had their lowest-scoring game of season. It also was the lowest total the Wizards have allowed.

    The Wizards took the lead midway through the first quarter and used an 11-0 run to start the second half and take an 53-39 lead with 9:09 to play in the third quarter. They sealed it with a 12-0 run in the fourth quarter, and led 93-73 with 5:09 to play.
