WASHINGTON (AP) -- John Wall scored 20 points, and the Washington Wizards avenged two of their biggest losses of the season Friday night, never trailing in a 91-78 win over the cold-shooting, turnover-prone Indiana Pacers.

Marcin Gortat added 17 points and 12 rebounds, and Al Harrington added 12 points, including a personal 10-0 run in the second quarter, for the Wizards, who dropped their first two games against the Pacers this season by a combined 47 points. Of Washington's three losses by 20-plus points this season, two have been against Indiana.

But Indiana was due for a letdown, two nights after a big win over the Miami Heat in a matchup of the top two teams in the Eastern Conference. The Pacers committed five turnovers in the first four minutes Friday and shot 35 percent overall.

Paul George scored 19 points for the Pacers, who have lost a season-high four straight road games.
