Defense isn't going to win a championship for the Wizards this season but it has helped them in their recent turnaround that has seen the team win 10 of their last 17 games.
MILWAUKEE (AP) -- After missing five games with a sprained right wrist, it took rookie Bradley Beal just two games to score a season-high in points. And he did it with his right wrist taped.
Happy days are here again for the Wizards.
Even though the Wizards have been excellent at home lately -- winning eight of their last nine at Verizon Center -- Washington has been dreadful on the road, sporting a 3-21 record for the season.
