Here are five plays or moments from the Washington Wizards' 112-105 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night at the Verizon Center that are worth revisiting...

1. Marcin Gortat had one of his best games of the season, a well-rounded performance of 19 points (on 9-of-9 shooting), 10 rebounds and three blocks that included some stingy defense on Karl-Anthony Towns, one of the NBA's brightest young stars. On this play Gortat blocked Towns and watched the former No. 1 overall pick tumble to the ground after he lost his balance:

2. Towns was limited to 18 points on 7-of-17 shooting, but he did have his moments. One of them was a thunderous windmill slam on the fastbreak in the first half:

3. Towns, though, would get blocked again. This time it was Jason Smith who sent him packing:

And Towns wasn't the only player who felt the wrath of Smith. The Wizards center also stuffed NBA slam dunk champion Zach LaVine at the rim:

4. And blocking shots wasn't the only thing that Smith did on Friday night. He also had this big two-handed slam which was assisted by John Wall:

5. Speaking of Wall, he had a strong night himself with 18 points and a season-high 18 assists. One of those was of the no-look variety:

Let's take a look at that Smith reaction one more time:

Wall set the table there, but late in the fourth quarter he helped seal the Wizards' ninth straight home victory with some key shots:
