The Washington Wizards took their foot Charlie Whitehurst Jerseyoff the gas, and it almost cost them.

John Wall had 16 points, 14 assists and 13 rebounds for his fourth triple-double of the season and Washington held on for a 99-94 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday night.

Wall made eight throws in the final 14.6 seconds to help the Wizards win their third straight following a five-game losing streak that put their playoff hopes in peril. Washington, which began Thursday 1 1/2 games behind Detroit for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, followed resounding victories this week over current playoff teams Detroit and Chicago with a win over the last-place 76ers.

It was harder than it should've been.

The Wizards nearly blew a 24-point lead.

''Most teams quit, fold,'' Wall said. ''Their team, they keep fighting.''

Philadelphia twice Demar Dotson Jerseytied the game in the final 5 1/2 minutes and had a chance to go in front with 26.7 seconds left, but Jerami Grant missed a pair of free throws. Washington scored its final nine points from the line to hold on for the win.

''Until we understand in this league that no game is safe at halftime,'re going to have inconsistencies we've had this year,'' Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. ''(The 76ers) play, they play and they keep playing. If you want to reach the next levels, you have to be more professional in finishing off a game.''

Marcin Gortat had 16 points and 13 rebounds and Marcus Thornton chipped in 18 points. Markieff Morris scored 14 points before being ejected with 6 minutes remaining.

Ish Smith scored 20 points and Nerlens Noel had 14 points, 16 rebounds and seven steals for Philadelphia, which has lost 16 of 17.
