John Wall’s stat line pretty much told the tale of last night’s loss to Orlando. Whenever he scores as many as 35 points, on 28 shots, with only two assists, it’s pretty clear the Wizards had a terrible night shooting the ball, with no other scoring option available...
Lately, the Washington Wizards bear little resemblance to the squad that got off to an abysmal 4-28 start. While it may be too late to play for anything meaningful, the Wizards haven't let that deter them from playing their best basketball.
On the other hand, the Toronto Raptors' struggles keep escalating.
Toronto will host the Wizards on Wednesday night, three days after...
