The Washington Wizards are now about to start their rough stretch of the schedule. After a couple bad losses to Boston and Memphis do the Wizards have enough inspiration to beat a Clippers team that sunk them badly last week?
When: Thursday, Mar. 4 at 7 p.m. ET
Where: Capital One Arena, D.C.
How to watch:
NBC Sports Washington Fox Sports Prime Ticket
Wizards: Thomas Bryant, Ish Smith (Out)
Clippers: Patrick Patterson (Out), Kawhi Leonard, Marcus Morris Sr. (Day-To-Day)
Tough, tough schedule, but maybe a break here? - As pointed out by our data guru Kevin Broom, now starts the tough part of the Wizards schedule. But the Wiz might be getting a break if Kawhi and Morris Sr. are ruled unavailable come Thursday. They are both currently listed as Day-to-Day. If they do end up sitting this one the Wiz might be able to pull it off. If they both play, it will be tough to defend them, evidenced by the 135 the Clips showered on the Wiz last week. But hey that was on a back-to-back after an overtime game the evening before and who knows what during the night that followed in the party town of L.A.
Can Cassius Winston play? — I don’t mind being the sole #freeCassius voice on the planet. Free Cassius!
This is the chance for that Austin Rivers tribute tape — During that first timeout. And a Marcin Gortat tribute during the second timeout.
Flashback: The Clippers rout the Wizards, last week
It might be interesting to go back and look at the tape from last week to see what needs to improve this time. Let us know in the comments!
