Here are five plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' blowout 120-98 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night at the Verizon Center that are worth revisiting...
1. The Wizards got out to a scorching start against the Thunder with 38 points in the first quarter to tie a season-high. They made their first nine shots to open the game.
Two of their first quarter points came on this fastbreak alley-oop from John Wall to Kelly Oubre, Jr. Wall had five assists in the first quarter alone:
2. This wasn't the best pass of the night. We'll get to that. But this was definitely one of Bradley Beal's best passes of the season. He drove baseline, then found Markieff Morris for a big dunk:
3. Okay, back to Wall and his passing prowess. On this one he found Marcin Gortat for an alley-oop. Gortat finished with 12 points:

4. That was nice, but this was the best pass of the night. On this one Wall set up Otto Porter with a between-the-legs pass. It was a thing of beauty and so was Morris' outlet pass to start the play:

Let's take a slow-motion look at that one:
5. Last but not least, let's give Trey Burke some love. He had a nice night with 11 points and four assists off the bench. Two of his points came on this stepback swish to beat the buzzer at the end of the third quarter:
Speaking of Burke, here's an honorable mention. He made a very difficult layup earlier in the game:
Finally, some memes at the Thunder's expense. Our @CSNWizards Twitter account let them have it:
One more thing: have you heard Wizards Insider J. Michael sing? He's got a great voice, as he showed on our postgame show:
The Wizards are fun. That is all.
