After taking lumps all season, the reserves may finally be developing an identity.
Not only will the Wizards stay above .500 with a victory Wednesday, but they would complete a run of three consecutive wins vs. the three best teams in the Western Conference.
How the Wizards got over .500 in their seventh try is quite improbable but fitting considering how this season has gone. They did it at home Monday night, where they'd had problems winning.
For the Wizards, there's only one potential positive about the Oklahoma City Thunder, who own the longest active win streak in the NBA at nine games, coming to Verizon Center on Saturday.
