Monday's game against the Detroit Pistons could not erase the Wizards' five-game losing streak, but it made everyone feel a whole lot better about it.
The Wizards dominated Detroit from the opening tip, cruising to a 124-81 in a game Washington desperately needed to win.
Of course, the question for this team is can they sustain it. Otto Porter Jr. joined SportsTalk Live on Monday night and told Rob Carlin and Brian Mitchell that it absolutely was.
"We getting guys back healthy, allows us to rotation and everybody's just playing for each other," Porter said. "I think there's a sense of urgency now and we're going to continue to go from there."
And, because it's March, we couldn't let Porter go without asking him about his brackets. With Georgetown out of it, however, the former Hoya is not interested.
"I'm not looking at it at all," Porter said when asked about the tournament.

Kevin Durant continues to give back to the community that raised him.
Durant, who calls Prince George's County, MD., home, recently announced a partnership with Prince George's County public schools.
The partnership, which comes with a $10 million dollar commitment from Durant, will help fund a program called College Track. Essentially, it's a 10-year program that provides basic infrastructure — test prep, tutoring, college selection and how to get financial aid — that kids from less-advantaged families often times don’t have.
Durant's money will go towards building College Track's Maryland center. There are nine other College Tracks across California, Colorado, and Louisiana, and the program has helped over 3,000 students get to college and beyond. This Maryland center will be the first of three that are planned to go up in the DC area.
