Bradley Beal launches a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left in the game, giving Washington a 102-99 victory over the Spurs.

WASHINGTON — Bradley Beal made a 3-pointer with 0.3 seconds left to lift the Wizards to a 102-99 victory over the Spurs on Wednesday night.

Beal, a former Gators standout, finished with 25 points, and John Wall had 17 points and 13 assists for Washington. Wall had 13 points in the fourth quarter, and he and Beal scored the Wizards' last 15.

Otto Porter added 19 points to help Washington win its second straight over San Antonio dating to last season. The Spurs had previously won 17 straight against the Wizards.

Kawhi Leonard led San Antonio with 23 points, and Tony Parker scored 11 of his 17 in the fourth quarter. LaMarcus Aldridge had 10 points and 14 rebounds for the Spurs, who committed 21 turnovers and had their three-game winning streak snapped.

After losing their lead late in the fourth quarter, the Spurs tied it three times, the last when Parker sank a 3-pointer from the right wing to make it 99-all with 7.9 seconds left.

The Wizards called two timeouts in setting up their inbounds play. Eventually they got the ball to Wall, who dribbled and found Beal in the right corner, where he sank his shot over a leaping defender.

GAME HIGHLIGHTS: Paul George had 26 points and 10 rebounds, Jordan Hill added 16 points and 10 boards and the host Pacers beat the Celtics 100-98. Monta Ellis made two free throws with 13.7 seconds left to snap a tie at 98.

GREEN IN HOSPITAL: Heat guard Gerald Green was hospitalized for undisclosed reasons after an incident in which police were summoned to his residence.

Green, 29, was not arrested, according to the Miami Police Department.

Police call logs show that police were summoned to the Marquis Residences Condominium at 10:46 a.m. Wednesday because of a "male down."

Miami-Dade Fire and Rescue requested assistance because of a "combative patient" at that address, where Green lives, the Miami Herald reported.

Police assisted but did not write up a report and nobody was arrested at the condominium.

Green was seen acting strangely in the lobby and screaming, according to celebrity news website TMZ. Several people, including emergency personnel, were needed to restrain Green and get him on a stretcher and into an ambulance, according to the website.

Heat guard Mario Chalmers, who lives nearby, was at the scene, tried to help and accompanied Green in the ambulance to the hospital, TMZ reported. Chalmers was with Green at the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

"This morning we were informed that Gerald Green was admitted into the hospital," the Heat said in a statement. "Right now our concerns are with Gerald and we have no further comment at this time."

Bill Duffy, one of Green's agents, did not respond to a call seeking comment.

AROUND THE LEAGUE: LeBron James intentionally tore the sleeves on the Cavaliers' new jerseys in Cleveland's game against the Knicks. James has said that he's "not a fan" of the body-hugging jerseys because they restrict him when he's shooting. … The 76ers signed point guard Phil Pressey after being granted an additional roster spot from the NBA for hardship relief. Philadelphia is without center Joel Embiid for a second straight season, and Robert Covington went on the injury report this week with a sprained right knee, joining three other players. … Bucks forward Jabari Parker returned to the floor for the first time since tearing his left ACL more than 10 months ago.

  1. Jordan Spieth wins British Open (w/ video)

    Golf

    SOUTHPORT, England — Someday, perhaps soon, there will be a plaque at Royal Birkdale for Jordan Spieth, much like the one off the 16th hole that celebrates Arnold Palmer and the 6-iron he slashed out of the rough in 1961 to win the British Open and usher in a new era of golf.

    Matt Kuchar plays out of the bunker on the 18th hole and finishes with bogey for 1-under 69. He had a one-shot lead after 13 holes.

    ST. PETERSBURG — Well, that was lovely.

    Brad Boxberger suffers his second loss in the three-game series, this time by allowing back-to-back homers in the eighth inning when called on to protect a 5-3 lead. “Just bad pitches,” he says.

    Lightning Strikes

    WESLEY CHAPEL — As a 17-year-old Triple-A hockey player, MacCallum Brown regularly plays against elite talent. As a Palm Harbor resident, he often has to travel to face that talent.

  4. Rays journal: Rays gamble on Sergio Romo's track record, heart

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Some of RHP Sergio Romo's numbers this season with the Dodgers were the worst of his career, yet the Rays feel he can be a good fit for their bullpen.

  5. Rays claim not to be panicking after third straight brutal loss to Rangers (w/ video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — There was no "here we go again" moment in the dugout as Rougned Odor's two-run homer in the eighth inning arced across Tropicana Field and toward the rightfield seats, even though when it landed, the score was tied and another late-inning Rays lead was blown.

    Rays third baseman Evan Longoria heads back to the dugout after fouling out in the ninth inning with the potential tying run on first.
