The Wizards are on the fourth game of a five game homestand tonight. They’re also looking to secure a season sweep against Portland. Not too long ago, they got their first win of the season by beating them in overtime.
The Blazers are so far doing well in a stacked Western Conference and have done very well against intra conference opponents. This game is certainly a blemish on an otherwise solid start to their season, so expect Portland to try to take control of this game early if they can.
Finally, on an unrelated note, it is Thanksgiving Week! Are any of you taking this entire week off to travel out of town to see loved ones? Or are you hosting family in your home? I’m in a festive mood, so share your thoughts in the comments below.
