WASHINGTON, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- Guards Bradley Beal and Tomas Satoransky were both on fire as they helped the Washington Wizards beat the Milwaukee Bucks 113-106 on Friday.

The Wizards got the job done with a balanced scoring attack as all five starters reached double figures. Beal had 32 points and seven assists while Satoransky, filling in for injured star guard John Wall, had his first career triple-double scoring 18 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists.

The Wizards also hit 18 3-pointers matching the franchise record.

The Wizards are now 5-2 since Wall was sidelined for rest of the season with left heel surgery. They are playing their best basketball of the season without Wall, forward Markieff Morris or center Dwight Howard.

Trevor Ariza scored 20 points and made six 3-pointers for Washington. Jeff Green went 4 for 7 from beyond the arc on his way to 20 points.

Forward Khris Middleton had 25 points for the Bucks. Guard Eric Bledsoe added 18 points.
