Crawford's 3 gives Wizards 98-95 win over Blazers
WASHINGTON 98, PORTLAND 95

By ANNE M. PETERSON
AP Sports Writer

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Jordan Crawford hit a 3-pointer at the
buzzer and the Washington Wizards dogpiled on the court to
celebrate a 98-95 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on
Monday night.



Nicolas Batum had 12 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists for his
first career triple-double, but the Blazers lost their
season-high sixth straight.



Crawford's fadeaway and a corner 3-pointer gave the Wizards an
82-75 lead, their largest to that point, with just more than 7
minutes left in the game.



Rookie Damian Lillard's dunk pulled the Blazers to 91-90 with
2:21 left. Former Blazer Martell Webster and John Wall answered
with consecutive dunks, but Lillard added a layup and Wesley
Matthews hit a 3-pointer to tie it with 7.9 seconds left.



Crawford's game winner was reviewed but it didn't stop the
Wizards' celebration.



The Wizards (9-30) have won four of their last six games - which
coincides with the return of Wall, who missed the team's first
33 games with a stress injury in his left kneecap.



In his first five games, Wall averaged 15.6 points and 7.6
assists. Playing off the bench against the Blazers, he had six
points and two assists.



Nene and Webster each had a season-high 24 points to lead the
Wizards, who won just their third on the road this season.



Washington opened the season with a 12 game losing streak - the
franchise's worst-ever start - that was snapped by an 84-82
victory at home against the Blazers.



The Wizards were coming off a 94-87 loss to the Los Angeles
Clippers on Saturday night.



LaMarcus Aldridge had 17 points and 12 rebounds for Portland
(20-21), which lost their fourth straight at the Rose Garden
after a nine-game winning streak.



Nene scored 10 points in the first four minutes for the Wizards,
who led by as many as seven points early. The Blazers went ahead
21-19 on Lillard's 20-foot pull-up jumper, but couldn't hang on
to the lead and Washington finished the first quarter ahead
34-31. Nene had 17 points in the first period alone.



The Wizards led until J.J. Hickson's dunk and free throw gave
Portland a 42-40 edge midway through the second quarter.



Rookie Meyers Leonard's long jumper and a layup to extended the
Blazers' lead to 48-40. Leonard was making his return after
missing 11 games with a right ankle injury.



But the Wizards closed out the half with a 10-3 run to narrow it
to 51-50 for Portland at the break.



The Blazers held off the Wizards in the third quarter but
surrendered the lead when Emeka Okafor's free throw put
Washington ahead 60-59. Webster made a 3-pointer that made it
63-61 for Washington.



The Wizards closed out the quarter with a 15-5 run to make it
69-64, but Ronnie Price narrowed it with a 3-pointer to open the
final period.



NOTES: Washington's 34 first-quarter points were a season high.
... The Blazers' 13 points in the third quarter were a season
low. ... All of the Blazers' starters finished in double
figures.
