Washington is coming off a win against the Dallas Mavericks last Wednesday and as Greydy Diaz noted in the preview, Jabari Parker had a very strong game against Dallas and hopefully can do the same tonight. Osman Baig also made the case that Parker should start as the Wizards head toward the homestretch of the 2018-19 season.
The Wizards have won a couple games in a row and every game against the Southeast Division is effectively a playoff tournament for both the division championship and the 8th seed in the NBA playoffs. If they are going to get the 8th seed, this is clearly a must-win game. Washington has struggled to will their way toward any extended winning streak and this game would be a way to start building that. Go Wizards.
