The Washington Wizards keep coming up just short of a winning record and are staring at a tough road just to get back to the even mark. The Wizards will take another stab at reaching .500 when they continue a four-game road trip at the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday. The Warriors found whatever they had lost on defense during a 103-88 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday and held the highest-scoring team in the league to a season low.Washington dropped to 0-5 when having a chance to climb above .500 when it suffered a 104-101 loss at Utah on Saturday and is now looking at a stretch that pits it against five straight teams with winning records, beginning with Golden State. The Wizards will close out the road trip at the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday before heading home to face Oklahoma City, Portland and San Antonio. The Warriors will need a second straight strong defensive performance to stop Washington, which is averaging 105 points over the last four games.TV: 10:30 p.m. ET, CSN Mid-Atlantic (Washington), CSN Bay Area (Golden State)ABOUT THE WIZARDS (21-22): Washington has won five of its last eight games but keeps falling short when it has a chance to become a winning team, falling in overtime to the Boston Celtics last Wednesday and falling at Utah after a win to open the road trip.
