WASHINGTON (AP) -- John Wall had 23 points and 10 assists, and the Washington Wizards beat the Milwaukee Bucks 106-93 Wednesday night.

Wall and Wizards coach Randy Wittman appeared to exchange unpleasant words during a timeout late in the third quarter, but Wall rallied with eight fourth-quarter points to hold off the Bucks' comeback.

It was Wall's seventh double-double of the season. He also added six rebounds and four steals.

The Wizards (21-42) have won three straight home games and eight of 11 in Washington.

Monta Ellis scored 26 points for the Bucks (32-31).
