NBA: Porter scores career-high 34 points in Wizards win


11-10-2016 15:49 BJT

Washington Wizards are looking to once again become a playoff team. The Wiz failed to make the post-season last year, and have but one win in five games this season. One the keys to the team's success will be the play of Otto Porter, and the often-injured small forward showed off just how good he can be, having a career-night against the Boston Celtics.

And there is a look at the city that Donald Trump will soon call home.

The Wizards would have their way with the Celtics early on -- an offensive rebound leads to a Markieff Morris triple. Team D-C scoring 18 of the first 20 points to take control.

Then off a turnover Washington goes the other way -- Jason Smith leading the fast break, and Porter finishes as the Wiz lead 25-4.

Second q now, and the hosts continue to play well. Marcin Gortat is able to get the rock in the lane, and convert the hoop and harm. 13 for the Polish hammer.

The almost-bullets would be paced by Porter in the opening half, the swingman firing for 20 points, including this And1. Hosts up by 21 after the free throw.

Boston would try and fight back -- All-star Isaiah Thomas is able to split the "D" and gets the runner. He is hacked in the act, but his team is still way behind.

Washington's point guard, also shows off his ability to get into the lane, John Wall slices in for a deuce while fouled. 19 for the Wall-star.

The C's would try and make a game of it -- Marcus Smart, fakes the triple, then pulls up for a trey -- he had 20, but the lead is still 17.

Washington though would be too much on this night -- Trey Burke sets his feet outside the arc as the lead stretches to 23.

Porter would be the high-man for the hosts -- going off for a career-best 34 points as the Wiz grab just their second win of the season 111-88 over Boston.

In other games. James Harden had a triple-double of 24 points, 15 assists, and 12 rebounds to lead Houston over San Antonio. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Steph Curry each hit for more than 20 as G-State clobbered Dallas. The Clipps roll Portland by 31. Minny and New York were winners. And DeMar Derozan, the NBA's leading scorer had 37 to take Toronto past OKC.
