5 must-see moments from Wizards' win over Kings, including Kelly Oubre's big dunks

Here are the five best plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 110-92 win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday night at Capital One Arena...

1. John Wall loves playing the Kings, apparently. He had five threes in their first meeting this season and was a perfect 4-for-4 on Monday night.

This was his second three:

2. The Wizards' bench was a big reason why they won this one and Kelly Oubre, Jr. was one of the standouts. He had 12 points, including two on this fastbreak slam assisted by Tim Frazier:

3. It was a relatively quiet night for Bradley Beal. He had a modest 14 points, but did notch this impressive up-and-under layup:

4. Wall finished one assist short of a double-double. Of his nine assists, this was the nicest:

5. Back to Oubre. This was his best play and one that he probably doesn't make just a year ago. This is a good example of his growth as an offensive player. Now he can break guys down off the dribble on occasion:

John Wall returns to Wizards lineup after recovering from knee procedures

After missing nine games while he recovered from two procedures on his left knee, point guard John Wall is back in the Wizards' lineup for their Wednesday night matchup at home against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Getting Wall back comes at a good time for the Wizards, who have lost two straight games, both to teams with losing records, and went 4-5 while he was out.

They are 5-6 without Wall overall this season.

Wall was administered platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment and viscosupplementation injections in his left knee on Nov. 25.

He returned to the practice court on Dec. 8 while the Wizards were on the road and has since taken the final steps before being medically cleared to return.

Wall will now rejoin a Wizards team that is 14-13 on the season and currently seventh in the Eastern Conference. Through 16 games this season, he is averaging 20.3 points and 9.2 assists. 

With Wall out, the Wizards have averaged 101.5 points per game compared their 108.4 points before he got injured. His return should help other players on the Wizards like Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Markieff Morris return to form on the offensive end.
