The Washington Wizards finally did it! They came through with a late fourth quarter run to beat the New York Knicks and are on a win streak heading to the NBA All-Star Break.

Bradley Beal led Washington with 30 points on 11-of-23 shooting, and also scored 10 in the final period when the Knicks kept things close throughout. In fact, neither team led by double digits in the first three quarters and New York even had a six-point lead in the second half. Here are his highlights below.

However, Washington broke things open in the fourth quarter, outscoring New York, 37-23. They held the Knicks to just 38.9 percent shooting while shooting a blistering 71.4 percent themselves.

Julius Randle led the Knicks with 21 points.

The Wizards (19-33) are now off for the All-Star Break. They will be back in action on Friday, Feb. 21 to host the Cleveland Cavaliers. Tipoff is at 7 p.m. ET.
