Bradley Beal returned from an eight-game absence and missed eight of his 10 shot attempts, but the Wizards are still a much better team with the third-year shooting guard.

The Wizards lost what had been a 21-point lead but were able to end their six-game losing streak with Marcin Gortat and Nene dominating inside.
