Keys to the Palace: During 15 game losing streaks, even the future looks dimmer

Last week, I identified the Wizards' game against New Jersey, New York and Golden State as winnable games down the stretch.  Now, I'm not all that sure the Wizards will be able to pull out a win against anyone in that trifecta.  The Knicks are 5-5 over their last 10 games, with wins over Denver and Dallas.  The Warriors are respectable 4-6 in their last 10, and the Nets have won 2 of their last 3.

If Washington can't pull out a win against one of those three, we could have a losing streak of historic proportions on our hands.  The record for the longest losing streak in NBA history belongs to the Cavalierswho lost 24 straight in 1982.  With 10 games left on the schedule, Washington could eclipse Cleveland's mark in the season finale at home against Indiana.  Of course, by the time the Wizards reach that game, the Cavaliers could be sharing that record with the Timberwolves, who have lost 16 straight and still have 8 games left this season.

If anyone has suggestions for words that rhyme with twenty, I'm all ears.

Andray Blatche: This probably isn't the way he envisioned making the front page of Yahoo.  Oh well.

Earl Boykins: Foye's injury gives Earl some playing time, but 4th quarter Earl is gone for good.

Randy Foye: Perhaps Foye's wrist, and not the roster shake up, are responsible for his slumping play.

Alonzo Gee: Who would've thought he'd have a higher PER in a Wizards' uniform than Caron Butler?

Shaun Livingston: Great set-up man, but he doesn't stretch the defense well.  No three pointers this season.

JaVale McGee: It still counts as two points whether you dunk it, or drop the shot in.

Mike Miller: Whaddya know? Miller has hit double-digits in scoring in six of the last eight games.

Fabricio Oberto: Hasn't recorded a block since February 28th.  That's not good when you are a center.

Quinton Ross: He's walking the fine line between being a spot rotation player and getting DNP's every game.

James Singleton: I am sure his 21 rebound performance will be brought up in summer contract negotiations.

Al Thornton: Just what the Wizards love to hear about: More injuries.  Hopefully he gets well soon.

Nick Young: He handled the Blatche drama with maturity and played better on the hardwood this week.

Flip Saunders: I wonder if he regrets shelling out all that money for iPods during the pre-season.
