Where things stand for the Wizards in the tournament

The Wizards and Clippers enter the tournament as the 16th and 17th seeds in the tournament, respectively, with the Wizards getting the higher seed by virtue of winning more quarters during their first three games.

The winner will advance to face the top-seeded Lakers on Thursday at 7:30 pm Eastern Time. The loser will take on the loser of Wednesday’s game between the Mavericks and the Bulls in the consolation round.

How will Troy Brown handle the Clippers’ talented backcourt?

Brown has come on strong in his last two games, going up against Lonnie Walker IV and Zhaire Smith, but he’ll be facing an even bigger challenge in this game. He’s going up against two lottery picks, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Jerome Robinson, who have combined to average 32 points per game in Vegas.
