Wizards clinch first division crown since 1979

The Washington Wizards had just celebrated clinching the Southeast Division for the franchise's first division title in 38 years.

The Wizards ended the longest division-title drought in NBA history with their fourth straight victory.

When the franchise last claimed a division title in 1978-79, it was known as the Bullets of the Atlantic Division and played in suburban Landover, Maryland.

The team had won its lone NBA championship the previous season and went on to lose the 1979 Finals to the Seattle SuperSonics.
