John Wall handed out 19 assists along with 12 points in a win over the Kings.
The Wiz were without Gary Neal and Bradley Beal, but Wall more than made up for their absence. Wall was masterful in his two-man game with Gortat, finding his center on pick-and-rolls for scores over and over. Wall repeatedly slithered his way into the teeth of the Sacramento defense to find shooters and cutters all over the floor.
The win brought Washington within two games of .500 at 12–14.
