Facing a watered-down version of the second-best team in the Western Conference, John Wall finished with 21 points, seven rebounds, and six assists Thursday night, leading the host Washington Wizards past the Memphis Grizzlies, 107-87.
The game got chippy late in the third quarter, when Washington's Kevin Seraphin was called for a Flagrant-2 foul and ejected for knocking Jon Leuer to the court as the Grizzlies' backup forward dunked. Earlier, Seraphin got tangled on the floor with Jarnell Stokes, which followed another bit of grabbing between Stokes and Washington's Marcin Gortat.
As it is, both teams were shorthanded. Memphis sat three starters: Mike Conley, because of an injured right ankle; and Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph, resting on the second night of a back-to-back.
Pacers 109, Bucks 103 - Rodney Stuckey scored 25 points and Luis Scola had 17 points and 15 rebounds to help Indiana beat visiting Milwaukee in overtime.
Down by two points in overtime, the Pacers went on a 9-0 run to take a 105-98 lead.
George Hill sealed the victory with two free throws with 16 seconds left in overtime, stretching the lead to six. Hill and C.J. Miles each finished with 17 points, and Stuckey added six rebounds and six assists.
Michael Carter-Williams led the Bucks with 28 points.
