Wizards' Marcus Thornton: Scores preseason-high 16 points

Thornton scored 16 points (5-12 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds and two steals across 23 minutes in Tuesday's 96-91 preseason win over the Cavaliers.

Thornton didn't shoot particularly efficiently, but that's never been his forte, given his career 42.6 percent mark from the field. The Wizards will likely lean on Thornton to provide scoring and three-point shooting to the second unit this season, with the 29-year-old working as top backup to Bradley Beal.
