Can Washington avoid the Sunday doldrums?
Afternoon road games are traditionally a bit harder to win than your average road games. It takes all the challenges of playing on the road and adds the element of an unusual start time to make it that much more difficult. The Hornets can attest to this. However, the Wizards face a particularly difficult challenge because they’re on the second half of a back-to-back.
This is still a game the Wizards should still win, because they’ve got something to play for and they’re significantly better than the Bulls, but don’t be surprised if the game is tighter than you would expect considering both team’s records.
