WASHINGTON—Over the last month, the Washington Wizards have put together a body of work at home worthy of comparison with any of the best teams in the NBA.
If only they weren't 21 games under .500.
The Wizards capped an impressive three-game homestand Friday night with an 89-74 victory over the Brooklyn Nets. The team with the third-worst record in the NBA has won eight of nine at the Verizon Center - a stretch in which they've taken down Oklahoma City, Atlanta, Chicago, New York and the Los Angeles Clippers.

|"We’ve got to fine tune and find a rhythm these last three games going into the All-Star break. We need to go into the All-Star break with momentum. That way, we come out and keep rolling. We’ve passed the halfway point. It’s time to gear up. We don’t have no time to mess around if we want to position ourselves for home court advantage, first round or second round."|
