The Wizards will still be looking for their first win of this five-game road trip when they close out the West Coast swing in Utah on Monday. Washington wilted against to Golden State, falling by a score of 114-104 despite a career night from JaVale McGee.
McGee set a career high in points with 28 and tied his career high with 18 rebounds. He had five blocks and made 10 of 11 free throws.
Despite McGee's efforst, the Wizards have now lost 10 straight road games. Get ready to hear about the 1990-91 Kings -- the only team to win just one road game in an NBA season -- before every road game from now on. The good news: Utah has lost its last five games. The bad news: Those games were all against teams above .500, and a home game against Washington is just the type of medicine the Jazz need. Ask the Warriors.
Monta Ellis put on a clinic on Sunday night, finishing with 37 points, 15 assists and seven rebounds. And while David Lee helped facilitate McGee's big night, he also managed to out-duel him, contributing 33 points and 12 boards to help the Warriors cause.
