Wizards Just Inches Away From First Road Win

The Washington Wizards keep getting closer and closer to their first road win of the season, but instead suffered their 22nd road loss tonight to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

It would have been the Wizards' first win on the road since April 9, 2010, a 106-96 victory against the Boston Celtics. Andray Blatche had a huge game that day, scoring 31 points and adding 11 rebounds, while Nick Young chipped in 19 points. The other three starters in the Washington lineup were Shaun Livingston, Mike Miller, and Fabricio Oberto.

Since Washington's last road win, Congress has changed hands, the NBA, NHL, MLB, and MLS have all named new champions, and the Wizards have turned over two-thirds of their roster.

The Wizards are now just seven games away from tying the Dallas Mavericks' all-time record road losing streak of 29 games in 1992-1993.

But with the Wizards coming so close to winning tonight, it seems that a road win MUST be in their near future. And if they can win one, what's to stop them from winning a few more? Washington has 19 more road games this season, including the next three games against the Grizzlies, Mavericks, and Hornets. If they can lose 22 in a row, why can't they come right back and win 19 in a row?
