Washington, DC (Betting Express) - Gilbert Arenas finished with 32 points and seven assists, as the Washington Wizards crushed the New Jersey Nets, 123-104, in their home opener.

Andray Blatche recorded a career-high 30 points off the bench for the Wizards, who split a pair of road contests to begin the 2009-10 campaign. Randy Foye added 17 points and eight assists, as Washington got the first home win for new head coach Flip Saunders.

"He's worked hard in the offseason," Saunders said of Blatche. "He's worked hard as far as even during the season here, so he's reaping the rewards of his hard work."

Chris Douglas-Roberts had a team-high 25 points for the Nets, who are still in search of their first win. They lost to Minnesota and Orlando before Saturday's setback.

Rafer Alston finished with 20 points and eight assists for New Jersey.

"We've still got to keep growing as a unit," said Nets guard Courtney Lee, who had 17 points. "And get comfortable with each other, in different rotations and matchups that are out there."

Arenas ended a back-and-forth first quarter with a long three-pointer to give Washington a 28-24 advantage, and DeShawn Stevenson began the second with another three to push the lead to seven.

The Wizards pushed their lead to double-digits later in the frame with a six- point burst, which Brendan Haywood capped with a pair of free throws to make it a 47-35 advantage.

The teams traded points the rest of the half, and Stevenson's layup in the final second put Washington up 62-51 at the break.

The Wizards continued to expand their lead with a strong third quarter. Shortly into the stanza, Foye hit a jumper, Haywood slammed home a dunk and Mike Miller drilled a three to make it a 73-55 contest.

Fabricio Oberto's layup at the end of the third established a 20-point margin, at 99-79, allowing the Wizards to cruise in the fourth quarter. Shortly into it, Blatche connected for three baskets during an eight-point run, which made it a 109-84 contest, and Washington eased through the final eight-plus minutes for the win.
