NBA Preview from The Sports Network



Sunday, January 5th (All times Eastern)

Golden State Warriors (22-13) at Washington Wizards (14-16), 6 p.m.

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Golden State Warriors will try to extend their win streak to nine games Sunday night when they continue their road trip against the Washington Wizards.

The Warriors haven't lost since Dec. 19 at home against the San Antonio Spurs. They are 4-0 on this current seven-game odyssey and have won five consecutive road games.

Andre Iguodala saved his best for last on Friday.

Iguodala, who was scoreless through the first three quarters, nailed a game- winning 3-pointer at the buzzer and the Warriors won yet again thanks to a 101-100 triumph over the Atlanta Hawks.

His shot wiped away a 15-point fourth-quarter deficit.

"Another one in the bank, a quality win for us. I believe that's our fourth win when we were down at least 15 points," Warriors head coach Mark Jackson said. "They showed tremendous resilience and competitive spirit."

Iguodala attempted just one shot through the first three frames, but netted seven points in the fourth. Stephen Curry had 22 points, nine assists and eight rebounds and Klay Thompson added 21 points and six assists for the Warriors.

David Lee led all scorers with 23 points. No other Golden State player scored in double figures.

The Warriors will visit Milwaukee and Brooklyn before heading home.

The Wizards dropped two straight, both at home and punctuated by a 101-88 loss on Friday to the smoking hot Toronto Raptors.

Nene scored 15 points off the bench to lead the Wizards. Bradley Beal and Martell Webster scored 12 apiece in the loss, John Wall had 11 points and Marcin Gortat finished with 10.

"I hope it's a smack in the face. I hope it's 20 degrees below zero and they get smacked in the face outside with that, too. Maybe that'll wake them up, too. I'll figure something out. We're going to get it one way or another," said Wizards coach Randy Wittman.

Wizards forward Trevor Ariza was ejected with 6:08 remaining in the third quarter after receiving consecutive technical fouls for making comments to referees.

Washington, which allowed Toronto to shoot over 50 percent from the field, committed 18 turnovers which led to 25 points for the Raptors.

The Wizards hit the road for three straight after Sunday.

The Warriors won five in a row and nine of their last 12 against the Wiz. Golden State earned three consecutive road victories in this series.
