Before Friday night's game in Utah, John Wall had this to say about their challenging back-to-back against Denver and Utah.
John Wall: "These two games right here are the season, in my opinion. This is the most important game of the season."— Jorge Castillo (@jorgeccastillo) March 12, 2016
After Friday's 21-point loss to Utah, Saturday's game against Denver is extra, extra important. Yes, they can make up a lot of ground next week if they can beat the Bulls and Pistons, but a win tonight would salvage their three-game road trip and give them some momentum heading into two games against the two teams ahead of them in the standings.

Most Likely Wizards Killer: Axel Toupane
He had a nice 10 point performance on Thursday against the Suns. If he can build on that momentum he could throw a wrench into the Wizards' plans this evening.
