Opponent: Golden State Warriors
Site: San Jose (Calif.) Arena
TV/Radio: HTS/WWRC (980 AM)
Outlook: The Bullets will play six games during the next nine days on this Western swing. Not since the 1991-92 season have the Bullets -- who went 3-1 then -- compiled a winning record on an extended December trip. The Warriors (8-15) are led by Latrell Sprewell (23.7 ppg) and former Maryland standout Joe Smith (18.0 ppg, 8.4 rpg). Bullets F Chris Webber returns to Golden State for the third time since being traded by the Warriors; he dislocated his shoulder in 1994, but scored 26 points against his former teammates in 1995. The Bullets split their two games with Golden State last season.
