As you might be aware, NBA great Kobe Bryant passed away today in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, Calif. RIP Kobe. That’s the first thing on nearly every basketball fan’s mind right now. But the Washington Wizards have a game tonight, and the show must go on.
They head down to Atlanta to visit the Hawks in their domain. Previously faced them back in early January and came out victorious behind a 29-point effort from Jordan McRae and a 18-point double-double from Troy Brown Jr.
Can we expect Washington to pull out this same effort tonight or go back into that routine of losing to teams that are easily bearable? Tune in at 6 p.m. this evening on NBC Sports Washington.
