Monday, Nov. 19, 7:00 p.m. Wizards vs. Pacers (WFED 1500 AM): The Wizards (0-8) will look to avoid the worst start in franchise history when they host the Pacers (4-7) Monday night at Verizon Center. The Wizards are just the second team in NBA history to start 0-8 in consecutive seasons.
Among the Wizards’ eight losses this season was an 89-85 loss in Indiana on Nov.10 in which Randy Wittman’s team blew a seven point second quarter lead. Former Pacers point guard A.J.
