Martell Webster scores 34, Wizards crush SunsPosted by Inside Hoops
Martell Webster scored a career-high 34 points and became the Washington Wizards’ first 30-point scorer this season in a 127-105 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.
John Wall added 17 points and 11 assists as Washington won its fourth straight at home and third straight overall while setting its season high in scoring.
Emeka Okafor added 17 points and 10 rebounds as Washington snapped a 10-game losing streak to Phoenix, dating to 2006.
Michael Beasley scored 21 points and Goran Dragic added 12 points and 11 assists as the Suns lost their fourth straight and their sixth of eight in March.
Phoenix now owns the worst record in the Western Conference, a half-game behind idle New Orleans.
Webster matched a career high with seven 3-pointers, his last coming on the left wing just moments into the fourth quarter to make it 105-84. Webster shrugged toward his bench after the basket, then followed with a reverse dunk to push it to 109-86.
