NBA Roundup: Kyle Kuzma takes Washington Wizards 113-105 to victory against Dallas Mavericks without Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis as the Hawks cling to vs 76ers

Kyle Kuzma scored 36 points and the Washington Wizards overcame the absence of Bradley Beal and Kristaps Porzingis by beating the Dallas Mavericks 113-105 on Thursday night.

Rui Hachimura added 23 points for Washington, which Beal missed due to health and safety protocols and Porzingis due to a left groin injury. The Wizards trailed 22-8, but rallied quickly and eventually pulled away thanks to a trio of three-pointers from Kuzma early in the fourth.

Spencer Dinwiddie, who went to Dallas in the trade Porzingis sent to Washington, led the Mavericks by 33 points, and Luka Doncic contributed 22. The Mavericks have lost twice in a row after a four-game streak.
