The Washington Wizards snapped a five-game losing streak and picked up their sixth road win of the season on Monday night with a convincing 113-85 win over the Charlotte Bobcats. Washington lead the lowly Bobcats from the jump, going up 20 at the half and then extending the lead in the second half to cruise to the 28-point victory. It was a total team effort, as Randy Wittman got 67 points from his bench and had seven players in double figures.
Jordan Crawford scored a team-high 20 points, but the offensive production from the bench was outstanding. Playing again without Nene and Trevor Booker, James Singleton produced a double-double effort with 18 points and 12 rebounds in the frontcourt. Fellow ten-day contract teammate Cartier Martin matched Singleton with 19 points and Jan Vesely added a double-double of his own. While John Wall scored only two points, the point guard blitzed the Bobcats in transition and dished 12 assists to help Washington extend their lead in each quarter. The 28 team-assists led to perhaps the best offensive showing of season.
With the losing streak over, Washington will stay in the Southeast Division but return home on Tuesday night to face the Orlando Magic, who may be without Dwight Howard who was held out on Monday with back problems.
