WASHINGTON -- Nick Young scored 20 points, and Andray Blatche had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Washington Wizards to a 92-75 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night in Randy Wittman's first game as coach.

Wittman took over for the fired Flip Saunders on Tuesday, and guided the team without the benefit of a practice. Saunders' lead assistant has been an NBA head coach twice -- with Minnesota and Cleveland. His career record improved to 101-207.
