The last time the Indiana Pacers were in this building, they were breathing a sigh of relief after eliminating the Wizards in six games of the Eastern Conference semifinals. This injury-decimated version looked nothing like that one -- Roy Hibbert was the only starter in the lineup from that series -- but they still didn't go down easy as Wizards won their fourth game in a row in front of 15,268 at Verizon Center.

The Wizards (4-1) overcame 37.4% field-goal shooting and just 19 points combined from Nene and Paul Pierce as John Wall sparked them in their first overtime game of the season for a 96-94 victory Wednesday. It took them 59 games to get three games over .500 last season. The Wizards are now 2-0 at home.

Wall had a season-high 31 points on 11-for-21 shooting, a game-high 10 assists, six rebounds and three steals. Garrett Temple (16 points), Marcin Gortat (14) and Paul Pierce (11) also reached double figures for Washington which only got 16 points from the bench. Gortat also had 10 rebonds and Temple added seven rebounds, four assists and two steals.

Indiana, playing without Paul George (leg), David West (ankle), C.J. Watson (foot) and Rodney Stuckey (foot), were led by Donald Sloan's 31 points and 19 from Chris Copeland off the bench.
