(AP) — All-Star weekend appears to be coming at a less than opportune time for the surging Washington Wizards.
Before heading into the break, they will try to get by a Detroit Pistons team that’s had their number of late.
The visiting Wizards look to extend their longest winning streak of the season to five Wednesday night against the Pistons, who aim for a 13th victory in 15 matchups in this series.
While it’s been an overall disappointing season for Washington (15-35), coach Randy Wittman’s team has picked up the pace in a big way over the last week. The Wizards have outscored opponents by an average of 11.3 points during their run, with all four wins coming against teams currently sitting inside the playoff picture.
