Everyone's locked into their playoff positioning, so I doubt this game will be of much real importance. The only question on our side is whether the wounded soldiers (Caron, DeShawn, etc) will play in tonight's game. I personally think they shouldn't, for the record.
On another note, if the Wizards win tonight, they will have only had a losing head-to-head record against one Eastern Conference team (Detroit). Who knows how much that means, but that would definitely be a nice accomplishment.
Get ready for lots of Nick Young posterizing J.J. Redick. At least I hope so.
