Another day, another moral victory.
Act '2012', scene 'Wizards,' take 17 links:
- The Wizards notched another moral victory last night, nearly rallying past a more-talented Warriors team before coming up short per usual, 101-97. The Wizards got a great game from Jordan Crawford, who led the team in points, rebounds and assists, and Bradley Beal had another solid game, but the Wiz fell to 2-15, the same record which got Flip Saunders fired last season.

- A big reason Crawford had such a good game was because he played a lot of minutes at point guard after A.J. Price broke his hand early in the game. Price is expected to miss 4-6 weeks. [Us | SB Nation DC | CSN Washington | Price interview]
