The Wizards have played improved basketball under Randy Wittman and that was evident at the start of this five-game trip. The Wizards notched their second and third road wins of the season with victories in Toronto and Portland. They still have the second worst record in the Eastern Conference but are closing the gap between themselves and the next grouping of Eastern conference cellar dwellers.
