How bad have the Wizards been lately?
Before they ended their losing streak Sunday with a victory over the Nets, the Wizards had lost each of their previous six games by an average of almost 18 points per game.
Things didn't figure to get much better when Washington headed out for a five-games-in-seven-nights road trip, especially considering the Wizards have exactly one road win this season.
They fell to 1-32 away from home at Portland on Tuesday, when they were blown out by 35 points in the opener of the trip.
Next up is a Wednesday game at the the Staples Center against the Los Angeles Clippers. The Wizards then travel to Denver, which has proven to be a better team minus the services of Carmelo Anthony, and the road trip closes with back-to-back games at Golden State and Utah on Sunday and Monday.
Judging by the way the Wizards have played lately -- they have dropped 14 of their last 16 games heading -- there is ample reason to believe that the Wizards will drop every game on the trip and return to face Miami at Verizon Center on March 30 carrying another lengthy losing streak.
TRAIL BLAZERS 111, WIZARDS 76: The Wizards turned the ball over a season-high 27 times and scored just 47 points over the final three quarters en route to their worst loss of the season. Jordan Crawford led the Wizards with just 12 points, and Kevin Seraphin was the only other Washington player in double figures, scoring 10.
