Outlook: The Warriors, who have won two of three, have regained the services of do-it-all guard Jackson. He had 24 points, seven rebounds and six assists in his first game back Friday, a 119-114 win against Atlanta. This is the fourth game of a seven-game homestand for Golden State, which lost in Washington 124-100 on Nov. 25. The Martin Luther King Jr. Day matinee is the first game of a four-city West Coast swing for the Wizards, who have lost five in a row on the road. Second-year guard Nick Young scored 13 in Friday’s win against New York; he has averaged 23.2 points the past five games.
