Wizards lose their 8th in a row

The Utah Jazz are a very good team. The Washington Wizards are not. End result = blow out.

Surprisingly, the Wizards played well in the first quarter, sharing the ball and generally playing together. They had 6 assists on 9 made field goals and the game was tied at 25 after one quarter. After that, Utah simply ran their pick-and-roll game to perfection - and steadily pulled away to take a 14 point halftime lead.

The Wizards started to show tired legs in the 3rd quarter, as they shot a pathetic 3 for 20 (15%), and almost every shot was coming up short. On the defensive side, they stopped moving their feet and started reaching, committing 10 fouls in the quarter.

After that, it was garbage time, as the Jazz led by 30 after three quarters.

 

Stay tuned, this may not be the worst loss on the current road trip. They have to play Denver tomorrow, and remember that Washington beat Denver in Washington back on February 19th. The Nuggets will remember that game. Denver lost a close game to the Rockets tonight 125-123 (more fuel for Denver's fire).... and Washington will be playing their 5th game in 6 days. After that, they play at Portland and then at the Lakers. This losing streak could get ugly.
