LOS ANGELES (AP) John Wall had 28 points and 14 assists, leading the Washington Wizards to a heated 117-107 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night.

Tempers flared with 2:14 remaining and the Wizards ahead 108-98, as Jordan Hill and Nick Young got into a scuffle with Gooden after a battle for a loose ball.

Referees Scott Foster, Mark Ayotte and Nick Buchert went to the video monitor at the scorer's table review, and Gooden was assessed a Flagrant 2 foul and was ejected. So was Hill, who received a technical foul. Young also got a technical, but stayed in the game.

Bradley Beal added 18 points for the Wizards, who began this four-game western trip with back-to-back losses to Sacramento and Portland.

Young and Jodie Meeks each scored 21 points for the Lakers.
