What to watch for
After a hard-fought
moral victory loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday, the Wizards are back on the road to play the Nets in Brooklyn. The Wizards are now 3-17, and en route to a 12 or 13 win season, playing another team that should be in the playoff picture.
The Nets are coming off two straight wins to Southeast Division teams, with Miles Bridges averaging 37 points in those two games. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him turn on the jets again tomorrow night. We’ll see what the odds are tomorrow as well.
Washington was able to defy expectations, even if the free throw disparity was bad. I omitted that last game intentionally because I’m really looking for anything positive to say. Do you think the Wizards can make things interesting tomorrow? Let us know in the comments below.
