One of the theoretical perks to having three max players is that they don’t have to all be on their A game to get a win. If one guy is off, you still have two other talented players who can step up and shoulder the load.

Of course, it doesn’t always happen that way, and it certainly hasn’t worked out like that most of the season for the Wizards. However, it sure is nice when everyone’s clicking like they did in Saturday night’s win against the Pelicans.

When Wall, Beal, and Porter all have it going offensively, the Wizards are still a very hard team to stop. On Saturday, they posted their fifth-best offensive rating of the season and their second-best true shooting percentage. If they want to revive this season, they’ll need more of that moving forward.
