Wizards Need Three Wins to Avoid Dubious Distinction



    The Washington Wizards are bad. That is no secret, but are they franchise-worst bad? It's entirely possible.

    According to The Washington Post's Michael Lee, the 12-41 Wizards need to win three of their final 13 games to avoid setting a new mark of franchise futility, putting an ugly bow on an even uglier season. Is it possible for the Wizards to win three games? Breaking down the schedule, it actually seems feasible.

    April 10 v. Orlando

    April 13 @ New York

    April 14 v. Cleveland

    April 16 @ Chicago

    April 19 v. Milwaukee

    April 21 @ Miami

    First things first, we can eliminate the two games against the Heat, the game against the Bulls and the game against the Magic, leaving three wins in nine games. Two games against the Bobcats, the only team worse than Wizards? There's two wins. That leaves just one win in seven games. Considering those seven games include the Bucks, Cavaliers and the Nets, I think the Wizards are fully capable of avoiding such a dubious distinction.

    But if they want to tank for a chance to draft Kentucky forward Anthony Davis, that works for me, too.
