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.
Move the ball and rely on different leading scorers every night. Don't let offensive troubles negatively impact effort on defense.
Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts could live with John Wall's 22 points, five assists, five rebounds, three steals and two blocked shots.
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.
