What to Look Out For

Another good show out for Washington

In their last meeting, Ian Mahinmi and the Wizards bench came through and dominated at home against the Miami Heat on December 30. Mahinmi, Garrision Matthews, Jordan McRae, and Ish Smith combined for 101 of the Wizards’ 123 points. Can Washington do this again? Well Matthews has been dealing with an ankle injury, so we won’t see much from him, but the rest we can see more from and plus Bradley Beal is back in the starting lineup after dealing with a few injuries himself.

The thing is the Wizards must work together and keep pushing the ball offensively if they want to get over on Miami on Wednesday. Hopefully that South Beach weather won’t play a factor too much!

Another crossover from Bradley Beal!

Just in case you missed out, on Monday afternoon Beal did this crossover on Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons that had the Wizards’ bench going off!
