"We can't look at the record and think we are going to get a win," Corbin said. "Trust me, they are not up to full speed right now, but they are playing hard and giving themselves a chance to win."

Trevor Ariza had 16 points in the first half for the Wizards but none in the second half. Crawford had 20 points and Emeka Okafor had 14 rebounds.

Washington played its first eight games without its two best players: former No. 1 draft pick and point guard John Wall, and big man Nene, who returned to practice Friday.

Utah's DeMarre Carroll, who had a career-high 17 points Friday, had seven points against Washington. "To get road wins early in the season is always good," he said.

Especially against the worst team in the league — and one that blew an 11-0 lead.
