Orlando, Philadelphia and Miami are the next three road stops on Washington’s schedule.
Which means that the Wizards had a real shot at matching the worst road start in NBA history – 0-29 by the 1992-93 Mavericks – as long as they lost Sunday in Cleveland.
But the Wiz didn’t.
Sporting a mark of 0-25 in games played outside the nation’s capital, Washington rolled up a 22-point halftime lead over the hapless Cavs and ultimately cruised to a 115-100 victory.
The Wiz, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, have thus recorded only the third-worst road start in league history, behind Dallas’ aforementioned 0-29 misery in ’92-93 and an 0-28 start for the New Orleans Jazz in 1974-75.
