Washington is coming off a close 116-113 loss to the Cavaliers last night. Since the Wizards have a knack for losing to teams with worse records while often doing decently against better teams, I wouldn’t be surprised to see Washington come away with a win here.
The Pacers are one of the Eastern Conference’s best teams this season but they are now hitting some harder times. Victor Oladipo is out of the season after getting surgery on his quad tendon. Indiana has yet to lose three in a row this season, and the Wizards may have a slight edge tonight as well. After all, three players who were projected to be starters (John Wall, Markieff Morris, and Dwight Howard) aren’t playing.
