Just when you see signs of hope that perhaps the Wizards will actually turn the corner and get back to back wins for the first time all season or get a win on the road, they don’t.

With an 8-24 record, the Wizards have shown improvements on defense  but where it matters most — the win column — not much has changed there. After John Wall and Nick Young, who both average about 16 points a game, nobody else is stepping up to score the ball. Newly acquired swingman Rashard Lewis would make perfect sense to be the third option but so far Lewis is still settling for shooting mostly three pointers which was the rap on him in Orlando. Center JaVale McGee had another double double in the loss to the Hornets on Saturday but for now he is far too inconsistent to rely on him as a consistent scoring threat. Kirk Hinrich and Josh Howard would be other viable offensive options but both are slowed by knee issues.

The Wizards have yet to post back-to-back wins all season and still a big bagel on the road at 0-16.  Almost impossible to do but they are getting it done. The Wizards get yet another shot at their first road win Wednesday night at Philadelphia.
