All of a sudden, the Washington Wizards are scoring a lot of points.

The Wizards look to continue their offensive surge as they visit Gund Arena to take on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Before Jan. 24, the Wizards had topped the 100-point mark just seven times, but are looking to score at least 100 for the sixth consecutive game Saturday.

Though they have won only two of their previous five games, the Wizards have lost the other three by a combined 10 points.

On Friday night, Gilbert Arenas scored 25 points and Jerry Stackhouse, playing just his third game of the season, added 23 as Washington posted a 112-100 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Kwame Brown added 22 points and Larry Hughes had 21 points and 12 rebounds as the Wizards had four players with 20 or more points for the first time this season.

“You’ve got guys out there who are committed to playing the right way, guys who are dedicated to playing defense and sharing the basketball, which we did,” Wizards coach Eddie Jordan said.

“We had some people who were out there bringing a physical presence to the game.”

The improving Cavaliers, 5-3 in their last eight games, are still having trouble away from their home floor, falling to 6-21 on the road after a 103-92 defeat at Minnesota on Friday night.

Jeff McInnis scored 21 points and rookie LeBron James added 14 for the Cavaliers. Carlos Boozer had 17 points and nine rebounds.
