The Wizards continued their road woes with a loss in Philly on Wednesday night. Washington has struggled mightily away from home, winning just 3 games away from the Verizon Center all season.
Washington jumped out to an early advantage, leading 30-23 at the end of the 1st quarter, but Memphis stormed back to cut the lead to 1 going into the half.
The Grizzlies would eventually capture the lead in the 3rd quarter, going into the 4th with a 5 point lead, and holding on for a comfortable 85-76 win.
