Darren Collison calls Wednesday's game against Wizards a "must-win"

Ronald Martinez

Somehow, the Wizards are playing more must-win games in November than the Redskins.

Most everyone called Martell Webster crazy when he called the third game of the season a "must-win" game, but here at Bullets Forever, we think he's a trendsetter. Just a little after a week after he declared the home opener a must-win, Mavericks' guard Darren Collison is following suit as the Wizards get ready to head to Dallas for Wednesday's game.

It sure does. With a win on Wednesday, the Mavericks cement their status as a playoff contender as they prepare for the all-important pre-Thanksgiving stretch as they try to hold off the Lakers, Nuggets, Suns and Jazz for the eighth seed in the Western Conference. The Mavericks can control their own destiny with a win tonight.

The Wizards, on the other hand, need a win and some help in order to still have a chance at the eighth seed, currently held by the Hawks. Should be an exciting one in Dallas on Wednesday.
