True to form, after a disappointing showing against a losing team in the Utah Jazz in the previous game, the Wizards came through to knock off the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena late
A win Tuesday would help the Wizards avoid a losing record on this four-game road trip, which would be an accomplishment considering the competition.

In exactly one minute after checking in, Otto Porter shot free throws after he was fouled on a three-point attempt. He made two of them to give the Wizards a 21-point lead again.
