Here's the good news: The Wizards remain firmly in the race for a playoff berth and can still dream about homecourt advantage in the opening round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.
The front end of the Wizards' schedule is loaded, which is why I projected they'd go 17-13 before the 2015-16 season began.
Jared Dudley, a Southern California kid, spent the 2013-14 season with the Los Angeles Clippers. The dream scenario turned nightmarish.
The one regret Jared Dudley has about his NBA career, which is in it's ninth season with the Wizards, is his one season with the L.A. Clippers when he admits his play was dreadful.
It finally happened. The immortal Golden State Warriors lost in a professional basketball game for the first time since June.
