The Washington Wizards are still at No. 30 in the weekly SB Nation NBA power rankings despite picking up their first win of the season this week.

The Washington Wizards got their first win of the season on Wednesday, edging the Portland Trailblazers, 84-82.

Jordan Crawford came off the bench to lead the Wizards with 19 points. Trevor Ariza added 14 points and Kevin Seraphin recorded a double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The victory was not, however, enough to get Washington out of 30th in this week's SB Nation Power Rankings. After ranking the Wizards No. 30 once again, Seth Rosenthal wrote: "Even Washington's lone win was a little sketchy, but it did happen."

The victory was sandwiched between losses to the San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks. The Wizards are now 1-13 on the season.

Washington is back in action with three games this week. The Wizards will host the defending NBA champions Miami Heat on Tuesday before going on the road to face Atlanta on Friday and coming back quickly to host Golden State on Saturday.
