The Washington Wizards head out on the road with back-to-back games this weekend, looking for their first win away from home this season.
Coming off their third win of the season, the Washington Wizards head out on the road for a back-to-back weekend in Houston and Charlotte. They start off on Friday night against the Rockets at the Toyota Center. The Wizards lost to the Rockets earlier this month, as Houston came to the Verizon Center and rolled to a 12-point win. John Wall had a career-high 38 points against the Rockets backcourt, and will need to put in that kind of effort if the Wizards are to get their first road win of the season.

Saturday presents a much more realistic opportunity for Washington's first road win. The Wizards visit division foe Charlotte for the first time this season. At 3-16 entering the weekend, the Bobcats actually have the worst record in the league, which includes a 17-point loss to the Wizards. Washington handled Charlotte for nearly the full 48 on Wednesday, and have lost six in a row.
Saturday, January 28th: Washington Wizards at Charlotte Bobcats, 7:00 PM - CSN
