(Sports Network) - Two of the NBA's worst teams tee it up on Wednesday night when the Washington Wizards, owners of the league's worst record, host the Cleveland Cavaliers, who have the third-worst mark this season.
The Wizards head into Wednesday night's battle the losers of seven in a row. With John Wall still sidelined with a knee injury and A.J. Price out with a broken right hand, the Wizards brought in point guard help. The team signed Garrett Temple and Shelvin Mack in the hopes to get some production out of the position.
It's become a bad situation in the nation's capital with all of this losing, so it's on their leader to try and keep the situation afloat, especially with new personnel.
"I've got to try to continue to instill them with confidence," said head coach Randy Wittman. "We have to keep plugging."
The Wizards are coming off a brutal home-and-home series with the Detroit Pistons. Washington lost on Friday, 100-68 in Detroit, then fell at home, 96- 87 at home.
In the second game, after such an embarrassing loss, the Wizards trailed by 19 at the half. They fought hard in the third quarter, winning that by nine, but cCompletion % 59.3 63.9 60.3 59.3
