WASHINGTON, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- Emeka Okafor and Bradley Beal each sank a free throw in the closing seconds Saturday, boosting the Washington Wizards over Houston 105-103.

Okafor split a pair of foul shot attempts with 5.2 seconds remaining for a one-point Wizards lead.

Beal grabbed Okafor's missed second try, was fouled, and added a free throw of his own to seal the victory -- the Wizards' sixth in eight games.

Okafor finished with 17 points and 11 boards. Trevor Ariza contributed 18 and six assists for Washington.

The Rockets got a game-high 27 points, six assists and three steals from James Harden as their two-game winning streak came to an end.

Chandler Parsons helped out with 24 points, seven boards and five 3-pointers for Houston.
