Tonight's Lines

Wizards at Bucks: Bucks by 1
Over/Under on Total Scoring: 189

I'm heading out the door, but I'll be back by around 8:45-9 to watch the rest of this one. In the meantime, begin chatting here.

I'm working on a longer post about Andray Blatche that'll hopefully be posted tomorrow. To summarize: he's not Kwame, he has his own complex issues.

There's no reason why we can't win tonight. Milwaukee's not very good and they don't play defense yet. We really could use this one and I'll be pissed if we lose.

GO WIZARDS!
