The Wizards defeated Brooklyn on Saturday, but coach Randy Wittman hasn't forgotten about the brutal effort in Washington's previous home game. Wizards-76ers at 2 p.m. on Monday.
The Wizards are on pace to win 56 games, which would be the most in 40 years, but even that might not be enough to win the Eastern Conference.
An admittedly perturbed Marcin Gortat grabbed a game-high 16 rebounds and Nene led the Wizards with 20 points and clutch plays in the fourth quarter of a 99-90 victory vs. the Nets.
The Wizards are 28-13 with 41 games left in the regular season, but their lack of consistent play on defense and spotty production from key reserves have to improve.
