One day after being humiliated in their own building by a tired San Antonio Spurs team, the Wizards hit the road and pummeled the absolutely horrid Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday night, 115-100, thus ending their string of consecutive road losses to start the season at 25 games.
The victory ended the third-longest road losing streak to start the season in league history.
The victory came two days after the Cavaliers ended the longest NBA losing streak in history at 26 games just two days prior.
For the Wizards, though, the only thing that mattered is that they finally have ended their losing ways away from Verizon Center.
"It felt like Christmas," said Wizards guard John Wall. "I thought I was going to get one pretty early. Luckily, we got it out the way. We didn't want to celebrate too much, because we got more games to win and we want to act like we've been in this situation before, which we haven't. Now we've got to build on it, and someway somehow, get on a winning streak."
The Wizards play one more game before the All-Star break, Wednesday, at Orlando. Orlando has won 13 of the last 16 meetings between the teams.
WIZARDS 115, CAVALIERS 100: The Wizards ended their 25-game road-losing streak Sunday evening against hapless Cavaliers. The Wizards never trailed in the game, and they led by as many as 25 points in the victory. Nick Young led the Wizards with 31 points, John Wall had 19 points and 14 assists, and Andray Blatche finished with 17 points and nine boards.
