John Wall with the steal and layup to force double-OT vs. Spurs (VIDEO)

Feb 6, 2014, 9:31 AM EDT

The Wizards were very close to winning their third straight at home over one of the West’s top-three teams, but ultimately fell to the Spurs 125-118 after two overtime sessions.

The fact that a second overtime was needed to decide it was all thanks to John Wall, who made the read on a poor decision by Tim Duncan on an inbound pass with 6.1 seconds remaining in the first overtime, and went the distance for a layup to tie the game at 115.

Washington had beaten Portland and Oklahoma City in its last two contests, but couldn’t quite close out San Antonio in this one.

    The Wiz kids are looking good lately. They might be able to go as high as a 5 seed in the east. not sure if they make it out the first round but they are becoming fun to watch. lets see if they can keep this up after the All-Star break.

      Despite this loss, I think we’re looking at the 3rd best team in the East but the 4th seed in playoffs. They’ve really turned a corner and believe they can play with anybody, and they can. They’ve shown it. Now all they have to do is take the next step of playing that way EVERY night. Some nights you’ll come up short but you’ll be in all of them and more often than not you’ll win.

        The Nets are a better team, they’re probably the fourth best in the East

    The Wizards have beaten them twice this year already…And that’s when they were playing bad.

    The fact that the last shot when in was pretty awesome…that would have been an impressive game winner

    Green should have fouled him. “Make him earn those two points.” Rather than give him a sure two point FG.
