The Washington Wizards finally posted their first win of the NBA season, scraping past the Portland Trail Blazers 84-82 on Wednesday.

But Randy Wittman's team finally got on the board at the Verizon Center, and held off a late charge from the Trail Blazers to win.
Trailing by 15 points in the final quarter, Portland went on a 16-0 rampage and took the lead by a point with two-and-a-half minutes to play.
But the Wizards steadied to win, and were well served by Jordan Crawford with 19 points and Trevor Ariza with 14.
Elsewhere, the San Antonio Spurs moved to 13-3 for the season with a 110-98 win over the Orlando Magic, their fifth straight victory.
Manu Ginobili had 20 points for Spurs while Tim Duncan added 15 and Tony Parker chipped in with 14 points and eight assists.
Memphis stayed on top of the Western Conference, however, with a 103-82 victory over Toronto moving them to an 11-2 record.
The Brooklyn Nets won 95-83 against the Boston Celtics, who had Rajon Rondo ejected following a fight.
