For the Wizards, there's only one potential positive about the Oklahoma City Thunder, who own the longest active win streak in the NBA at nine games, coming to Verizon Center on Saturday.
Whenever the Wizards lose a lead or allow a game that is close to get out of control, the culprit is almost always turnovers.
The .500 and over-.500 talk has indeed gotten old. But a win Friday night puts the Wizards back there for the fifth time. They've been good on the road where they're 3-1 this month.
The table is set for the Wizards to finally get over .500, and for the first time this late in a season since 2008, on Wednesday.
