DALLAS -- The Dallas Mavericks' three-game losing streak ended Wednesday night. The Washington Wizards' season-long skid continued. Washington, the NBA's last remaining winless team, fell to 0-7 with a 107-101 loss at American Airlines Center. The Detroit Pistons were 0-8 before earning a 94-76 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday. The Wizards talked about being embarrassed after Tuesday's ugly loss to the Bobcats in Charlotte, yet for much of Wednesday's game they trailed by 18 points or more to a Dallas team that lacked injured forwards Dirk Nowitzki and Shawn Marion. Washington came to life early in the fourth quarter and sliced an 83-71 deficit to 90-87 with 6:26 to go, bolstered by hot shooting from the beyond the 3-point arc. However, Dallas' Chris Kaman and O.J. Mayo responded with consecutive baskets, and then Wizards guard Jordan Crawford was hit with a technical to lift Dallas' lead to 95-87 with 5:43 to play. The Wizards kep...

When the Dallas Mavericks arrive in the Midwest for weekend games against Indiana and Cleveland, they just wont be the same.
But, hey man, the Mavs are kind of doing OK, anyway.
The Mavs begin their trip Friday against the Pacers. They face the Cavaliers the next night. But anyone hoping to get a glimpse of Dallas at its very best well, youre out of luck, kids.
Things are dull for the Dallas Mavericks right now. There have been some good wins so far in this young season, coupled with some franchise-first losses. OJ Mayo, Darren Collison, and Chris Kaman have lit it up some nights, only to lay eggs in a few recent games. All in all, the beginning of the [...]
Now that our beloved Washington Wizards have started 0-7 my frustrations, along with every other Wizards fan, are getting close to the tipping point. Randy Wittman can’t seem to put a solid and consistent rotation on the floor on a nightly basis, so I’m going to lay one out for him that would be much more beneficial to this team and to us die-hards who have been pulling our hair...
Wednesday Wizards Report Image courtesy @KevinHineWoA with Wiz of Awes _________________________________________ Wizards Need Changes….NOW! After last night’s blowout at the hands of the Bobcats (one of the worst statements a NBA fan can mutter), I can’t tell if this is 2011 or 2012. Last year the Washington Wizards started out 0-8 and with upcoming games against the...
Earlier today we tweeted a John Wall GIF that summed up these winless, feckless Wizards rather nicely, but this one from the halftime show of last night’s loss to the Bobcats (via @HouseFromDC) really takes the cake.
Your 2012-13 Washington Wizards, like a karate stick to the nuts.

The Washington Wizards played the Charlotte Bobcats Tuesday night in a game that made all 6 viewers at home say “can’t we just contract one of these teams and combine the rosters?” The game was so unappealing that even the referees appeared to tune out at one point. The Set-Up: with just over three minutes left in the 3rd quarter, Jan...
The winless Washington Wizards have waived Jannero Pargo and signed free-agent guard Shaun Livingston, bringing back a player they hope can help fill the void until John Wall returns from injury.
Pargo appeared in all seven of Washington's games during its 0-7 start, averaging 3.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 14.6 minutes.
The 6-foot-7 Livingston was waived by the Houston Rockets...
DALLAS (AP) -- Chris Kaman scored 23 points and had eight rebounds in only his second start for the Dallas Mavericks, who held on for a 107-101 victory over the winless Washington Wizards on Wednesday night.
O.J. Mayo had 25 points as the Mavericks snapped a three-game losing streak since Kaman's only other start.
Washington (0-7) had trailed by as many as 22 points before...

I have got to give this one to Cartier Martin. Jordan Crawford played great, especially filling in for the injured A.J.Price at point guard but Cartier almost single-handedly got the Wizards their first win. He sat on the bench the entire game until...
Hey, the Dallas Mavericks haven’t forgot how to win a ball game! Kind of had me scared for a bit especially since at one time they had over a 20 point lead and only won by 6, what’s up with that and also at the end of the game, the Wizards had all bench players; but those players gave their team a spark and the coach stayed with that plan.
A win is a win, but there are still...
The Dallas Mavericks certainly are struggling, but their recent problems don't seem nearly as difficult to overcome as those facing the winless Washington Wizards.
Dallas looks to end a three-game skid by earning its fifth straight victory over visiting Washington on Wednesday night.
The Mavericks (4-4) won four of their first five games without Dirk Nowitzki, but they'...
When looking at the NBA standings, that glaring donut in the Wizards’ win column will certainly draw a bit of unwanted déjà vu. The Wizards, just one season removed from an atrocious 0-8 start in 2011, find themselves spiraling down a similar funnel of misfortune but somehow seem to be avoiding the panic button.
How so? Well, in contrast to last season, the Wizards of present...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Washington Wizards are a mess without injured stars Nene and John Wall. They were at their ugliest Tuesday night in a woeful 92-76 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. The numbers told the whole story for Washington: 29.8 percent shooting from the field (25-for-84); 16.1 percent shooting from 3-point range (5-for- 31); 17 turnovers; outscored 46-24 in the paint...
The Washington Wizards are a professional basketball team. You'll just have to take my word for that because I really couldn't point to anything from tonight's 92-76 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats to support that assertion. The Wizards were blown out -- yes, blown out -- by the Bobcats in Charlotte tonight, as the Wiz could manage to hit only 29.8 percent of their shots...
