CLEVELAND —

John Wall had 21 points and 13 assists as the Washington Wizards won their fifth straight to extend their longest winning streak since 2007, beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-85 on Wednesday night.

Wall had 12 points, six assists and four steals in the third quarter, when he accounted for 24 of Washington's 28 points and helped the Wizards open a 14-point lead. Wall added seven rebounds and seven steals.

While Washington's star guard put on a show, Cleveland's watched. Kyrie Irving, expected to be named the NBA's rookie of the year next month, played only 10 minutes - all in the first quarter - of the Cavs' home finale.

D.J. Kennedy led Cleveland with 12 points in his NBA debut.

Washington rookie Jan Vesely had a season-high 12 rebounds.
