Wizards Vs. Timberwolves: Wizards Hope To Finally Win Road Game Against Limping Wolves

The Wizards' winless streak on the road has become a broken record, but 0-18 is hard to overlook. Thursday night in Minnesota, Washington might have its best chance to date to finally win one away from home against the lowly Timberwolves.

The Wizards will look to avoid the longest road losing streak to start a season since the 1997-98 Denver Nuggets, which started 0-22. Washington has lost its 18 road games by an average score of 14.5 points per game.

Minnesota doesn't prove to be a formidable opponent. The Timberwolves have nine wins to the Wizards' 10 and will look to avoid their own bad streak: four separate losing streaks of at least six games.

Nick Young had a career-high 43 points in Washington's 136-133 overtime win over the Sacramento Kings Tuesday. Young and the Wizards will have to stop Kevin Love in the paint. Love averages about 22 points and 16 rebounds per game.
