(AP) — Although the Washington Wizards have been at their best over the last three weeks, the Detroit Pistons always seem to bring out their worst.
Seeking its second four-game winning streak this month, Washington looks to avenge a loss in Detroit two weeks ago and avoid a 14th defeat in 16 meetings to the visiting Pistons in Wednesday night’s season series finale.
The Wizards (18-37) have won seven of nine, including a season-high four straight Feb. 4-11. That run, however, came to an end with a 96-85 loss at Detroit on Feb. 13, Washington’s fifth consecutive defeat in the series. The Wizards have been outscored by an average of 11.8 points during that skid.
Washington could be feeling good about snapping those woes in the nation’s capital, where it’s won 10 of 12 while averaging 101.1 points – 9.1 more than its season mark.
