Washington, DC (Sports Network) - John Wall scored the game's final six points to lift the Washington Wizards over the road-weary Philadelphia 76ers, 90-87, at Verizon Center.

Wizards star rookie Bradley Beal suffered an ankle sprain late in the fourth quarter with the Sixers leading by three. Wall turned it over on the possession following Beal's exit, but quickly recovered to hit a pair of jumpers around his tying and go-ahead free throws to snap Washington's two- game slide.

Wall and Martell Webster each netted 16 points, Beal had 14 and Emeka Okafor added 12 with 16 rebounds for the victors.

Dorell Wright led the Sixers with 15 points off the bench but missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer near the buzzer. Spencer Hawes, Thaddeus Young and Jrue Holiday each scored 14 points in Philadelphia's 10th straight road loss.
