The Los Angeles Lakers lost for the fourth time in their past five games Wednesday night, beaten 116-107 by the Washington Wizards, who got league scoring leader Bradley Beal’s 27 points and Russell Westbrook’s 13th triple-double in April.

Washington has won nine of 10 games, led by its dynamic duo of Beal and Westbrook, who finished with 18 points, 18 rebounds and 14 assists.

That extends his NBA record for most triple-doubles in a month and gives him 30 for the season and 176 for his career, just five away from Oscar Robertson’s career mark.

The Wizards were up 69-67 early in the second half when they used a 16-2 run to break things open and grab an 85-69 edge with about 2 1/2 minutes left in the third quarter.

The Wizards have 10 regular-season games left.
