What to watch for
The Wizards have lost a lot of games lately, but their last win came against the Knicks last Sunday. Gary Payton II, in his Washington debut had a double double.
Though this win was a statement for Washington given their injury woes, they still were losing by double digits last Sunday and were doing what they could to “throw the game away” in the closing minutes. Hopefully, the Wizards can start strong and get a more solid victory tomorrow, whether Bradley Beal is able to play since he also has a nagging leg injury.
