What to watch for

Don’t sleep on Montrezl Harrell

Harrell is averaging 13.6 points per game and just went off for a career-high 30 points, helping his team secure a win against the Houston Rockets (his former team) on Friday night. He went 8-for-13 from the floor and was 14-for-15 from the free-throw line. He’s got plenty of momentum going into this game against Washington.

Wizards have some things to work through...

If you had the chance to tune into the last minute of Friday night’s game, you saw the Wizards blow multiple opportunities to win. So, it wasn’t a surprise that Wizards players were frustrated after their 116-112 loss. Beal and Wall were quite open and colorful with the media regarding their feelings.

”We suck right now,” Beal said. “I feel like sometimes we have our own agendas on the floor. We complain about shots or complain about playing time; whatever it may be. We’re worried about the wrong s***.”

“Everyone has their own agenda,” Wall said. “We’ve got guys that are worrying about not getting shots and where the ball is going on the offensive end. We shouldn’t worry about that. No matter if you’re missing or making shots, you gotta be able to compete on the other end. If you can’t do it on both ends of the floor, then you don’t need to be playing.”

The Wizards are only five games in so hopefully they can extinguish and recover from the issues that they have encountered.
