Stephen Curry lit up the Wizards for 35 points before leaving with a right ankle sprain in the fourth-quarter of the Warriors' 101-92 victory over Washington.
Cartier Martin has been biding his time at the end of the Wizards bench, patiently waiting for his chance to play. He got it on Wednesday night at American Airlines Center as the Wizards took on the Dallas Mavericks. Martin scored 14 points in 10 minutes on 5 of 6 from the floor as the Wizards lost 107-101, a game that was headed toward a blowout if not for Martin's efforts.
Cartier Martin should be able to breathe a sigh of relief by now. After bouncing around the NBA on a seemingly endless series of 10-day contracts since the 2009 season, Martin signed a one-year deal with the Wizards in July for the veteran's minimum.
Wizards owner Ted Leonsis didn't have time to check, but said he was fairly certain that there isn't a single player on the current Wizards roster who was on the team when he became the majority owner back in June of 2010. He wasn't far off.

"Guys trusted in me and believed in me, and they know that I can make shots," Martin said. "It's my job to go out there make them. I had confidence in myself that I could get back [to the NBA]."
Martin said playing on a 10-day contract is "stressful," but something he can't worry about.
