PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – John Wall scored 39 points and the Washington Wizards edged the Portland Trail Blazers 125-124 for a controversial overtime win on Saturday night.

It looked as if Markieff Morris stepped out of bounds before making a go-ahead baseline jumper with 0.4 seconds left. The crowd at the Moda Center howled in protest and the players pointed to the video replay to no avail.

Bradley Beal added 26 points for the Wizards, who have won five straight.
