What to Watch for

Will the Wizards have any legs left?

This is the second time this season the Wizards have played a back-to-back this season. They fared well on the second-leg of their first trip, picking up a solid win in Miami after a tough loss in Orlando. Of course, it’s a lot easier to handle back-to-back games when they’re in the same state.

The Wizards have to go through customs and travel all the way back to Washington after Friday’s game in Toronto, so even though they’ll be at home, they’ll be traveling like it’s a road game. Meanwhile, the Pelicans have to travel nearly as far the Wizards after facing the Knicks in New York on Friday.

We’ll see which team has more energy after their travels on Friday night as they both try to put tough losses on the road behind them.
