A 9-2 lead stalls for the Wizards because of consecutive bad passes, from Nene and John Wall, and the Golden State Warriors are soon able to get on top of the first quarter.
Dropping a game 114-107 to the Golden State Warriors isn't anything to get alarmed about, especially with how well the Wizards played in most areas.
More of a concern than losing for the ninth time in 11 games for the Wizards is Paul Pierce as he had to be helped off the floor at the end of Tuesday's game.
If the Wizards had been able to put forth this kind of effort in their previous 10 games, they'd have won more than two of them.
The Wizards have been through lows before, but in the last two seasons it hasn't been this much of a lull -- at least not so obvious to the naked eye.
