Porter Jr. shines, Wizards win fourth straight game

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) If the Wizards come back from the All-Star break without missing a beat, the nation's eyes will soon be glued to Washington, D.C.

Something special is happening in our nation's capital - the Wizards are just five games behind the defending champion, first-place Cleveland Cavaliers, and they are playing some of the best basketball in the NBA over the past six weeks.

"I've never been this close to winning this many games in my career," guard John Wall said. "Even after a bad start (to the season) - we had an opportunity and had a lot of home games and took advantage of that. We're a team that's playing with a lot of confidence and playing (well) on both ends of the floor."
