With the Toronto Raptors losing in overtime Tuesday, the Wizards had a chance to close to two games of the No.
Trevor Ariza hasn't been able to buy a three-point shot. He's 6-for-26 in his last four games. Marcin Gortat is 12-for-34 shooting in the last three.
Listless for most of the game, the Wizards were able to hold two of the Sacramento Kings' 20-point scorers well below their averages and fight off a late rally to get back to .500 in front of 18,1
The Wizards can't afford another loss to a losing team such as the Kings, who may not have one of their best players, as they try to get back to .500 overall, including at Verizon Center on Sunday
Bad news for the Wizards.
