New Orleans Hornets 97, Washington Wizards 89
If you throw out the 25 games on the road that they’ve lost, the Wizards are a very respectable 13-10, which would leave them fifth in the Eastern Conference. Unfortunately for them, road games count just as much as home games even if you couldn’t tell that by watching them play.
