Pregame notes

What are exactly are the Wizards doing?

If you’re a Washington Wizards fan, then the confusion is understandable. Washington is beating teams they’re expected to lose against and losing to teams that should be easy to beat. Prime example would be the fact that the Wizards have beaten the Brooklyn Nets twice, beat the Los Angeles Lakers and swept the Utah Jazz who currently are the NBA’s best team on paper.

It doesn’t make sense. Hard to tell in what direction this franchise wants to go in. There’s the fact they’re about two games out of the play-in tournament while others feel they should keep playing terrible and make their way into a top-five draft pick. With this team, it’s hard to tell what direction they wish to go in.

So for now it’s a matter of what team you’ll get each night. And honestly you’ll never know until the game is over and you look back at the score and stats.

So on Wednesday night, when the Wizards visit the Sacramento Kings just who will we see: The team who beats top-caliber teams or the team that disappears against the bottom of the bunch?
