WASHINGTON — Bradley Beal scored 24 points, John Wall dished out a career-high 20 assists to go with 14 points, and the Washington Wizards held on to defeat the Chicago Bulls 112-107 on Friday night.

Washington snapped a two-game losing streak and is 21-4 in its last 25 games.

Playing their first game since Dwyane Wade suffered a fractured elbow that will keep him out for the rest of the regular season, the Bulls rallied from 19 points down and had a chance to tie it, but Jimmy Butler missed a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left.

Butler finished with 28 points and Robin Lopez added a season-high 25 points and 12 rebounds.

Chicago, which began the night in 10th place in the Eastern Conference, has lost seven of eight.

76ERS 116, MAVERICKS 74: Justin Anderson tied his career high with 19 points and Robert Covington scored 12 of his 18 points in Philadelphia’s dominant third quarter, helping the 76ers win a rout at home.

Noel had nine points and five rebounds in his first game against his former team since being traded on Feb. 23. Dwight Powell led the Mavericks with 14 points.

Anderson, acquired from Dallas in the Noel trade, had two highlight-reel dunks in the period, both of which drew “oohs” and “ahhs” from the home crowd.

Dallas Coach Rick Carlisle went deep to his bench late in the quarter to try anything that might work, but the Mavericks had no answers for the 76ers, who led by as many as 43 points.

Noel entered to strong applause from Philadelphia’s fans with 6:45 left in the first quarter. Prior to his entry, the team showed a video tribute to Noel on the scoreboard.
