Pregame Notes

In the Eastern Conference, although the Orlando Magic are the current eighth-seed, Washington Wizards are only 3-games begins them. So in a realistic approach they could still make the playoffs possibly. Honestly don’t see why a playoff push is what the Wizards are focused on getting because a quick sweep in the first round is what exactly will happen especially with a hot team such as the Milwaukee Bucks as the top seed.

Let our own site manager Albert Lee tell it, the Wizards could make the playoffs with their new roster and offense that has gotten them to a mediocre record good enough to possibly make the playoffs. It’ll definitely come down to the wire, but if Bradley Beal is the only one putting in work then we can kiss playoff hopes goodbye. Team work makes the dream work....so they say.

The key against Chicago and any team rather is finding a consistent rhythm on offense and some type of defense for crying out loud! The extra energy and push that happens on offense can cause a serious blowout leading to even more of a lackadaisical defense from Washington.
