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.
The .500 and over-.500 talk has indeed gotten old. But a win Friday night puts the Wizards back there for the fifth time. They've been good on the road where they're 3-1 this month.
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.
Somehow, the Wizards could find themselves in a four-way tie for third place in the Eastern Conference after Monday's win vs. the Philadelphia 76ers at Verizon Center.
