Washington Wizards 7th in opponent points per game in last four games

They say defense wins championships, but bad defense loses basketball games too. The Washington Wizards are the epitome of this flip of the ol’ axiom, sitting on a 20-33 record and giving up a whopping 119.8 points per game.

It’s so bad, Bleacher Report recently put together a list of the league’s worst defenders at each position and three of the five “stars” of that list were Washington Wizards players. Three of them. Yikes.

I took a bit of umbrage with that one, as I thought it was just a bit unfair. But what may come as a surprise is that over the their last four games, since the trade deadline, the Washington Wizards sit at 7th in opponent’s points per game.
