"What's that? We've won three out of four is it?" Blatche said. "It feels good to win three out of four, I ain't going to lie, man, to go out there and play with energy, effort. We're all playing with a meaning now."
The Warriors had won two straight to get Nelson even with Wilkens, and another victory would have given them their first three-game winning streak of the season.
"We're a little tired," Nelson said. "I changed up on them, took them to the White House today. That's a lot of walking, standing around, but I still think it was a good thing for those guys to experience. If that had something to do with our demise tonight, I would accept that responsibility. I still think it was a good thing to do."
NOTES: Maybe it was for the best that Nelson didn't break the record. The setting was hardly one for a historic moment, with the Verizon Center about two-thirds empty at tipoff before the crowd grew to an announced attendance of 14,721. ... President Barack Obama happened to be home when the Warriors visited the White House. "Didn't get a chance to chat with him, but we saw him. He was out sunning around noon and reading. ... My wife supported Obama and worked for him and set it up," Nelson said. ... McGee is the first Wizards player to get 25 and 15 off the bench since Dan Roundfield had 29 and 16 against Atlanta on April 4, 1986.
