Here are the five best plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 92-89 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night...
1. Kelly Oubre, Jr. had himself a game. The third-year forward dropped 16 points to go along with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block.
Oubre made several plays off the dribble, including this one where he drove baseline and finished with a two-handed slam:

2. The bench was a big reason why the Wizards won and that included Jodie Meeks, who had 12 points, all on three-pointers. This three barely beat the buzzer to end the first quarter:
3. This was one of Oubre's best plays. He led the fastbreak and found Mike Scott (12 points) with a nice behind-the-back pass. This is a good example of his growth as a player:

4. Tomas Satoransky has long been teased by his teammates as a practice dunker because, though he can throw it down, he rarely gets the opportunity in games. This was one of his best dunks as an NBA player. He threw down an alley-oop with authority:
5. Otto Porter didn't start this game well, but he made sure to end it on a strong note. Porter hit two key shots in the final minute, including this long two to help seal the win. It ended up being the go-ahead shot:
Porter had 22 points and eight rebounds to help lead the Wizards to a win without Wall. So much was made before this game about the Wizards' problems scoring in the clutch, but Porter certainly changed the narrative in this one.
