Wall, Porter help Wizards earn 115-111 win over Pistons

WASHINGTON (AP) Frustrated with their defensive effort for much of Friday night, the Washington Wizards made the key stops late.

Otto Porter had a crucial strip of Avery Bradley, John Wall blocked Reggie Jackson's potential tying runner, and the Wizards emerged with a 115-111 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

"We showed glimpses of when we were good, but if we don't pick up defensively on the road, we won't win any games," Wall said. "We got to figure out a way to get back to playing defense consistently."
