VIDEO: Is there a Wizards .500 curse?

The Wizards got back to .500 with their 88-85 win at Golden State on Tuesday night. As Dan Steinberg pointed out last week, Washington has a dismal track record when trying to get above the .500 mark, going 0-10 in such games since 2009.

So, is there a .500 curse? The “Post Sports Live” crew tackled the issue this week. (NOTE: The show was filmed before Tuesday night’s win.)
