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.
For the first time in his second season here, Marcin Gortat is lost for words.
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.
Three losses in a row isn't as big of a deal for the Wizards as is losing for the eight time in 10 games after Sunday's 106-89 letdown to the Detroit Pistons.
