Both the Wizards and Jazz love to make LeBron's team look silly. I went bonkers when I saw Gordon Hayward make this shot:
He's having a great year so far, at least statistically. But the team as a whole isn't so hot, where they've lost nine of their last ten games.
On another note, the Atlanta Hawks lost 100-99 to the relentless Orlando Magic, which snapped their nine-game winning streak. The Hawks' loss gives the Wizards the Southeast Division lead, though it's just by half a game since Washington's 16-6, and ATL's 16-7.
On top of that, the Eastern Conference-leading Toronto Raptors play on the road to the New York Knicks tonight at 7:30 p.m. Since the Hawks aren't playing today, if the 16-6 Wizards win and the 17-6 Raptors lose ... I'll let you figure out the rest. :)
Let's get it done folks!
