The Washington Wizards ended a seven-game losing streak last night against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Tonight, they are looking to start a new streak. This time, they'd like it to be a positive one.
Things aren't going quite as well as they'd hoped tonight though. The Detroit Pistons lead the Wizards 60-51 at halftime as the Wizards are going for just their second road win of the year.
The Pistons have had little trouble with the Washington defense in the first half. They are shooting 50% from the field, while the Wizards are under 40%, and have 18 assists to Washington's eight, six of which have been earned by John Wall. The rookie point guard also has 15 points. The Pistons are also leading the Wizards in rebounds, 25-18
Charlie Villanueva is leading all scorers with 16 points in 11 minutes off the bench. Rodney Stuckey has 11 points, six rebounds, and five assists for the Pistons, and seems to be on his way towards a double-double.
The Wizards have won only one game on the road all season, and its looking less and less likely that they'll get their second tonight. They've got 24 minutes left to do it.
