It’s another late night for a Washington Wizards Game Day! Tonight the Wizards will arrive at the Staples Center taking on the Los Angeles Lakers. Washington is currently on a four-game win streak and doesn’t look to be letting up. The Lakers, 2020 defending champs, have currently lost two games in a row. The Wizards are hoping to make it three.

The Lakers have been without Anthony Davis and it has shown especially when it comes to the lack of high-percentage shooting. Many expect LeBron James to do it all, but let’s be realistic here...he can’t. Washington has seemed to find whatever it was they needed to win games. We had hoped they found it sooner but better late than never.

Hopefully the Wizards don’t go into this game with big egos and play how they have been and get the win. The biggest matchup will be how Rui Hachimura defends James. We all know James has a tendency to “flop” and have calls go his way.

Game time is scheduled for 10 p.m. ET and televised on NBA TV and NBC Sports Washington.
