The Washington Wizards are not a good basketball team. They have a pretty good point guard, a bunch of shooters, a rookie with a hot Central European girlfriend and a guy named Trevor. I can appreciate all of these things. Still, they're not very good. They're so bad that they're likely going to get their second coach fired in less than a calender year. Randy...

So it looks like we will likely need about two wins to secure a playoff birth and tonight is as good a night as any to get one of those wins.
We are playing against the wizards who are on a 2 game winning streak after having lost 5 straight. The Wiz are a dangerous team mostly because of their style of play (perimeter shooting) and because they have nothing to lose.
We are 8...
