It’s a Washington Wizards Game Day!!!

Get excited....despite them being on a losing streak. Hopefully that will change tonight as the Wizards take on the Utah Jazz. The Jazz are currently the NBA’s best team in the league. That should be good since Washington has a good record against teams above .500.

Despite playing on Wednesday, Raul Neto will be a game-time decision tonight. He had 12 points in the loss to the Sacramento Kings.

The Wizards, if they plan to beat Utah, have to be efficient in every quarter. The Jazz don’t seem like a team that allows opponents back in the game and Washington has a tendency to fall behind and play decent basketball in the second half.

Big key to look out for tonight is how the Wizards adjust attacking the paint and/or living and dying by their three-point shot. It won’t be easy since Utah has two-time Defensive Player of the Year, Rudy Gobert.

Game time is slated for 7 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Washington and NBA TV.
