Wizards aim to improve playoff chances vs. lowly Pistons

The Washington Wizards are going all out to secure a playoff berth. A matchup against the team at the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings could help the cause.

Washington, which is fighting for a play-in berth, will host Detroit on Saturday night after an exhausting but ultimately rewarding 117-115 overtime victory over New Orleans on Friday.

Russell Westbrook was spectacular again with 36 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists against the Pelicans. He scored 10 of Washington's 12 overtime points, including the game-winning free throws with 1.9 seconds left.
