The Washington Wizards will travel to Charlotte on Monday evening to take on the Bobcats and try to end their current five-game losing streak.
The Washington Wizards are in the midst of a five-game losing streak, dropping their fifth straight game to the New Jersey Nets on Friday. On Monday evening, the Wiz will close out their three-game road trip with a visit to North Carolina to take on the Charlotte Bobcats and hope to put an end to their losing slide. The Wizards are 2-0 so far on the season against the struggling Bobcats, beating Charlotte in their last meeting 102-99.
The Bobcats are in the middle of their own losing streak, but it's of the double-digit variety. The Bobcats have lost 11 games in a row and haven't won since the middle of March when they were able to beat the Toronto Raptors to pick up their seventh win of the NBA season. Both teams will be trying to end long losing streaks on Monday evening.
