DeShawn Stevenson knows why the Washington Wizards won their first road game of the season.
"We passed the ball well and shot it well as a team," said Stevenson, who scored a season-best 21 points in the Wizards' 108-88 win over the New Jersey Nets last night. "We shared the ball as a team and got open looks. It felt good, because I've been in kind of a slump. I just figured I'd come in and shoot it. If I missed, who cares?"
Caron Butler had 22 points and 10 assists for Washington (3-12), which won for the second time under interim head coach Ed Tapscott and for the first overall against an Eastern Conference opponent after 11 straight losses.
