(WASHINGTON) — The San Antonio Spurs continue to be the class of the NBA, while the Washington Wizards are nearing historic infamy.
The Wizards lost their 12th straight game to start the season by falling to the Spurs 118-92 on Monday night at the Verizon Center.
“I’d like someday for us to play like that,” Wizards coach Randy Wittman said of the Spurs after the game.
The Spurs (12-3) ended the first half on a 20-10 run to take a 60-48 lead into the break and never looked back. San Antonio shot 56 percent from the field and from three-point range for the game.
Tiago Splitter had 15 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists off the bench for the Spurs.
Washington (0-12) will need a win in their next six games to avoid matching the New Jersey Nets’ record 0-18 start they put forth in 2009.
“We’re all embarrassed — plain and simple,” Wizards forward Martell Webster said.
