John Wall scored 25 points, Nick Young had 24 and Jordan Crawford added 18 to lead Washington to a 105-102 victory over Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, snapping the Thunder's seven-game winning streak and giving the Wizards just their second win of the season.

Oklahoma City lost for only the third time in 15 games, getting 69 points from Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. During one stretch bridging the second and third quarters, the duo accounted for 21 of the Thunder's 23 points. Both slowed down after resting at the start of the fourth, missing 11 of 17 from the field.

After the Wizards missed their first six 3-pointers, Young hit four and the team made seven of 10 in the third and into the fourth.

Durant missed a potential tying 3 with 1.9 seconds left.
