Streaking Wizards roll into matchup with slumping Thunder

There wasn't much Washington Wizards guard Ish Smith could do basketball-wise during his nearly two months out with a quadriceps injury other than shooting from a chair.

Heading into Monday's home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, that chair work is paying off for Smith -- and the Wizards -- in a big way.

Washington has won four consecutive games and six of seven to move to the brink of a spot in the play-in games with less than a month remaining in the regular season.
