Yep, that just happened.
The Portland Trail Blazers lost to the Washington Wizards, 84-82 at Verizon Center in D.C.
That the Wizards were 0-12 on the season heading into the game meant nothing against a foe with virtually no bench production to speak of -- a trend that has become alarming as Portland has lost three in a row and fallen to 6-9 overall.
Thing is, a winless Washington team really should be the closest thing to an automatic win as Portland is going to see this season. The talent is certainly there.
The bench production is not.
Portland got four total points from its bench on Wednesday night -- two from rookie center Meyers Leonard and two from rookie guard Will Barton. Three others -- Jared Jeffries, Ronnie Price and Sasha Pavlovic -- got into the game but didn't score or produce much of anything worthwhile, really.
Two ex-jazzmen helped. LOL
Sorry just a brain fart on my part. How the heck did I get Portland confused with Golden State.
