Best of NBA: Lakers rally late for OT win over Wizards

LOS ANGELES -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit a 3-pointer with 58 seconds remaining and the Los Angeles Lakers handed the Washington Wizards their first loss of the season, 102-99 in overtime on Wednesday night.

Brandon Ingram scored 19 points for the Lakers, who had dropped their first two home games. Lonzo Ball had six points, eight rebounds and 10 assists in an anticipated matchup against Washington's John Wall. Larry Nance Jr. added 18 points and 10 rebounds.

Bradley Beal had 28 points for the Wizards, who were looking to match their best start since the 1978-79 season by winning four in a row.

Wall was stuffed by Julius Randle driving to the basket with less than 15 seconds left. After officials initially ruled the ball hit Randle last, a video review gave the Lakers possession, and they broke through pressure to set up a dunk by Randle.

Wall missed an off-balance 3-pointer while being defended by Ball as time expired.

Wall finished with 18 points and nine rebounds (see full recap).
