By Jason GormanPosted October 03, 2018 05:53:09The Washington Wizards are the most dominant team in the NBA.
They’ve won 20 consecutive games to extend their winning streak to a league-best 23.
That streak is the longest in the league.
They have the best record in the West at 37-8.
They are also in a three-way tie for second place in the Eastern Conference.
Washington is also the only team in that playoff race with a winning record.
They beat the Portland Trail Blazers by 22 points on Wednesday night.
The Wizards also beat the Atlanta Hawks by 28 points on Friday.
The Utah Jazz have lost three straight.
Utah hasn’t been in the playoffs since 2011.
They beat the Oklahoma City Thunder by 26 points on Tuesday night.
Utah has dropped five straight and six of its last seven games.
The Detroit Pistons are still in a battle for the final playoff spot in the East, and the Atlanta Pistons are in the same situation.
The Indiana Pacers are one game back of the Atlanta Falcons for the No. 4 seed in the conference.
They won’t have a shot at the top seed unless they win a game to ensure that they are at least ahead of the top-seeded Detroit Pistons.
The Dallas Mavericks have been the worst team in terms of scoring.
They rank 31st in the Western Conference.
But the Mavs have been a strong team for most of the season.
They’ve won nine of their last 10 games.
The Mav, who won the NBA Finals last year, have won seven of their past eight games.
Their biggest weakness is their rebounding.
They were last in the division with 29.7 per game last season.
Now they’re dead last.
They also have the worst field goal percentage in the top 10.
They shot a league low 32.5 percent from beyond the arc in their last game against the Boston Celtics.
