Wizards Vs. Cavs: Washington Finally Gets Road Win 115-100, Avoids History

It finally happened. The 2010-11 Wizards won a game on the road. That it came vs. the Cavs is no matter.

Washington avoided being on the road side of history. The Wizards win against the Cavaliers ended their single-season road losing streak before it matched the historical nadir of 29 straight games,set by the 1992-93 Dallas Mavericks.

"It just feel like we got a whole mountain off our back," Andray Blatche told Comcast's Chris Miller on TV after the game.

There was a brief point in the fourth quarter where it looked like the Wizards of old might sabotage this energized, focused version that showed up in Cleveland tonight. The Cavaliers cut a 22-point halftime deficit down to 11 in the fourth, but Washington was able to withstand the run and put away a comfortable win.

Nick Young led the offense, finishing with 31 points, one of five Wizards in double figures.

"It just feel like we got a whole mountain off our back," Andray Blatche told Comcast's Chris Miller on TV after the game.

It remains to be seen what this win means for the future of the Wizards season. But it does mean the Wizards can stop worrying about "chasing" that infamous bit of history.

It also means the media will need to find something else to talk about. Oh, right -- playoffs!
