Wizards blow lead, then rally to beat Pistons

(TSX / STATS) -- WASHINGTON -- Helped by an explosive offense, the Washington Wizards opened the season with back-to-back wins. John Wall's fear is they might go winless on their upcoming road trip if the defense doesn't tighten up.

Otto Porter scored 28 points, and Wall had 26 points, 10 assists and two blocks as the Wizards improved to 2-0 with a 115-111 win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday night.

Bradley Beal finished with 25 points as the Wizards held on after letting a 15-point fourth-quarter lead slip away. Wall and Beal combined for 34 points in the second half, but scoring wasn't the issue.
