John Wall scored 31 points and Nick Young added 29 as the Washington Wizards held on for a 111-108 victory over the visiting Toronto Raptors on Monday.

Wall added seven assists and five rebounds to pace the Wizards, who have won two of three meetings with Toronto this season. The Wizards improved to 4-10 at home on the season.

Jerryd Bayless and Linas Kleiza scored 30 points apiece for the Raptors, who trailed by as many as 18 points before storming back to force overtime.

After foul shots made up the only scoring in the first 4:33 of OT - four by the Wizards, three by the Raptors - Trevor Booker hit his first free throw with 6.7 seconds remaining but missed the second. Toronto's Jamaal Magloire had the rebound but it slipped through his hands and Young scooped it up.

Young hit one of two foul shots with 1.5 seconds left, and Jose Calderon's game-tying 3-point attempt was short.

Down two in the final minute of regulation, the Raptors went ahead on a Kleiza 3-pointer from the right elbow. Wall put Washington back in front with a driving layup, but Bayless drew a foul and made both shots to restore Toronto's lead.

Wall brought fans out of their seats on the next possession, knocking down a driving jumper while being fouled by Bayless. He missed the foul shot, but Jordan Crawford secured the offensive rebound and hit a foul shot to put the Wizards up by two.

Johnson put back a Bayless miss to tie the game again with 10.2 seconds left, and Nick Young had a 19-foot attempt blocked by James Johnson to set the stage for overtime.
