The Wizards play the New Orleans Pelicans at 8 p.m. ET. You can watch the game on NBC Sports Washington or listen to it on the Wizards mobile app or Federal News Radio 1500 AM.
Washington already beat New Orleans at home earlier this month so this game is an opportunity to get a sweep over a team that went to the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs last season. Anthony Davis wasn’t around last time, but he will be this go-round.
The Wizards are gradually getting out of their early season woes — and hopefully that also means that some of the past drama around the team is going away. Winning cures a lot of things.
Six of the Wizards’ next seven games will be on the road with most games against teams whom aren’t as good as Washington on paper. But this game and Friday’s game against the 76ers will prove tougher tests.
So let’s get another win and climb out of that ugly start!
