CLEVELAND -- The Washington Wizards lost Nene to a knee injury, and then won the game with a strong effort on defence. Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey . John Wall scored 21 points, Bradley Beal had 17 and the Wizards beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-83 on Sunday night. Washington had a 66-63 lead midway through the third quarter when Nene departed with a sprained left knee. The Wizards then held the Cavaliers to 11 fourth-quarter points to return to .500 at 28-28 on the season. They also strengthened their hold on the fifth spot in the Eastern Conference standings. "Were a team right now thats just trying to play the right way and get on a roll," Wall said. Nene had eight points, four rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes. He was coming off one of his best games with the Wizards, when he had a career-high 30 points in Saturdays win over New Orleans, including the game-winning dunk with less than a second left. Coach Randy Wittman said Nene banged knees with Spencer Hawes and will get an MRI on Monday. Luol Deng led Cleveland with 17 points and the injury-riddled Cavaliers lost for the second straight time after winning six in a row. The Cavaliers played without centre Anderson Varejao (sore back) and guards Dion Waiters (hyperextended left knee) and C.J. Miles (sprained left ankle). While the Wizards are in good shape to snag a playoff spot in the weak Eastern Conference, the Cavaliers are five games out of the final post-season slot. Kyrie Irving, who scored 15 points, admitted that hes looking at the standings. "You have no choice but to pay attention to it," he said. "We want to accomplish something, but it starts with every single game. Time is of the essence right now." Washington led 78-72 after three quarters, and then grabbed control in the fourth. Two baskets by Kevin Seraphin, who replaced Nene, and five points by Beal helped the Wizards build a double-digit lead before Trevor Arizas 3-pointer with a little over a minute left made it 96-81. "We felt bad when he got hurt, but during the game, you have to keep focused the whole way, which we did," Seraphin said. The Cavaliers shot 49 per cent in the first half, but were 4 of 19 from the field in the fourth quarter. "The ball just seemed to stick in one area," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "It was almost like we played in an elevator at times. It wasnt crisp like it was in the first half." Ariza scored 15 points and Marcin Gortat had 13 points and 13 rebounds. Hawes, playing his second game since being acquired from Philadelphia on Thursday, had 16 points and 12 rebounds for Cleveland. The Wizards used a 12-0 run midway through the first quarter to go ahead for good. Cleveland got within one point several times in the third quarter but never pulled even. The game featured two of the top young point guards in the league in Irving and Wall. Irving was the MVP of the All-Star game and Wall won the dunk contest. Wall ended the first half with a dunk and two 3-pointers in the final 1:21. He banked in a 30-footer to beat the halftime buzzer, giving Washington a 58-52 lead. Washington scored the first two baskets on a tip-in and a fast break after a bad pass by Irving, leading to a timeout by Brown just 31 seconds into the game. Browns message obviously worked as the Cavaliers took a 13-8 lead, but the Wizards scored the next 12 points to go ahead 20-13. The teams split the season series, with the road team winning all four games. "The last time we played Cleveland, we gave the game away," Ariza said. "They played harder than us the last time. We did our best to prevent that from happening again." Hawes made his home debut late in the first quarter. He had 13 points and seven rebounds in 14 first-half minutes.

Tomas Plekanec tallied late in regulation and Brendan Gallagher supplied early offense for the Habs, who received 15 saves from Carey Price in snapping a three-game skid. Beliveau, who died at the age of 83 last Tuesday, laid in state at Bell Centre on Sunday and Monday, and will have a public funeral on Wednesday at Mary Queen of the World Cathedral only two blocks from the arena. He was feted in front of the home crowd -- which included his wife, Elise, and several members of his family in the block of seats held since the days of the Forum -- with a video presentation and a prolonged period of silence. It was a little bit emotional before the game. But Im glad to be part of this night, and glad we got her (Mrs. Beliveau) a victory, Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty admitted. Everyone had some extra energy. We worked hard, and would have liked to have had a couple more goals, but were getting chances. Ryan Miller stopped 22 shots in the loss for the Canucks, with Derek Dorsetts second-period short-handed goal their only tally. Its not an excuse. You have to play at another level when youre on a long road trip as we are, Miller said. We were definitely playing like were at the end, but we competed hard. Steve Nash Jersey. Im just sorry we couldnt stretch it into overtime, but thats the way it goes. Vancouver, which completed a seven-game road trip at 3-3-1, hosts the Rangers on Saturday to kick off a four-game residency. Plekanec gave the Canadiens a 2-1 lead with 4:16 left in regulation. He broke free of two Canuck defenders in the neutral zone, skated up the middle before taking a pass from Sven Andrighetto and beating Miller with a high wrister. Pacioretty put the capper into an empty net just before time expired. We played one of our best games this season. It gave me a great satisfaction ending this slump after the commemoration, noted Montreal head coach Michel Therrien. Following a scoreless opening 20 minutes, Gallagher put the Habs on top just shy of the seven-minute mark of the second period with a hard and high wrister from the left circle. Vancouvers Brad Richardson was off for a high stick but the Canucks tied the game anyway on Dorsetts shot from in front off a dish from Jannik Hansen at the 11:56 mark. Game Notes Montreal has won five of its last six home dates with Vancouver since February of 2009 ... Beliveau had his name inscribed on the Stanley Cup a league-record 17 times -- 10 as a player and seven more as a Canadiens executive ...
