Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-03-11

Washington Wizards Getting Inside 2009-03-11
In a season that has long since been over, the one rallying point for the Wizards is not becoming the worst team in franchise history, a title that is not out of the question.

Going into Monday night's game against woeful Minnesota, the Wizards needed to win five of their remaining 19 games to avoid matching the 18 wins the Chicago Packers posted during the 1961-62 season.

"We're not going to make the playoffs like we have in recent years and we don't really have a lot of goals left for the season," forward Caron Butler said. "But nobody wants to be associated with being the worst team in franchise history. Nobody wants to be embarrassed like that."

Interim coach Ed Tapscott, who has yet to say whether he wants to come back as the team's coach after replacing Eddie Jordan, says he tries to keep the Wizards motivated no matter what the record says.

"You want them to go out and still play with pride and passion," Tapscott said. "It's still a great life. We're trying to build on whatever we can all the way to the end of the season."

WIZARDS 110, TIMBERWOLVES 99: The Wizards ended their five-game losing streak with an easy victory over the hapless Wolves.

Caron Butler led the Wizards with 27 points, 19 rebounds and six assists, and Antawn Jamison added 26 points to lead the Wizards, who led by as many as 17 points in the second half.

The loss was the Timberwolves' 11th straight at home.
