Mired in their longest streak of the season, John Wall made sure that his Washington Wizards snapped the skid leading the team to a big road 97-85 victory over LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday night.

Wall scored a season-high 35 points on an efficient 14-of-24 field goal shooting and added 10 assists and 5 steals to give the Cavaliers their first home loss of the 2015-2016 season.

Three other starters scored in double figures for the Wizards. Bradley Beal had 18 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists, Marcin Gortat posted a double-double of 15 points and 10 rebounds with 4 blocked shots and Jared Dudley added 12 points.

The Cavaliers never tasted the lead in this one as Washington started the game on a 10-blast and brought a 54-43 lead at halftime. The Wizards unleashed another 9-0 run to start the second half and the Wizards cruised to their fourth road victory of the season.

James led the way for the Cavaliers with his own double-double of 24 points and 13 rebounds but their other star, Kevin Love struggled from the field missing 8-of-10 shots for just 8 points. Matthew Dellavedova scored 15 points off the bench while J.R. Smith and Mo Williams added 13 and 12 points, respectively.

As a team, the Cavaliers shot just 28-of-83 from the field (33.7 percent FGs) and 9-of-30 from behind the arc (30.0 percent 3FGs) and also had 18 turnovers.

The Cavaliers travel in their next two games, facing the New Orleans Pelicans and Miami Heat on a back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday, respectively. The Wizards play their next three games at home, taking on the Los Angeles Lakers, Phoenix Suns and Dallas Mavericks.
