It took awhile but really, for the first time all season, the Wizards are playing pretty good basketball. After upsetting Oklahoma City last Monday, the Wizards took care of Atlanta on Saturday night in business-like fashion in a game that saw the return of the team's best player in guard John Wall.
The reason for the first winning streak of the season? Simple, it's getting everyone involved.
Wizards coach Randy Wittman has been harping on spreading the ball offensively all season long and his message may finally be getting through to his now 6-28 team.
Five players scored in double figures in the 93-83 win over Atlanta.
"This is three games in a row now where we've moved the ball, passed the ball and didn't over-dribble and didn't try to do anything we're not capable of," Wittman said after the Hawks win. "The movement of the basketball has been great. I think that has to be something that we continue to build on."
The Wizards go for a season high three-game win streak against a slumping 13-23 Orlando team tonight at Verizon Center.
"We're going to have to turn it around and keep playing the way we've been playing," Wiz guard Bradley Beal said.
