The Washington Wizards will face the Los Angeles Clippers at 9:30 PM Eastern time tomorrow night. The Wizards are coming off of a bad 116-112 loss to the Sacramento Kings in which the Wizards had two late turnovers that cost them. First, Bradley Beal dribbled the ball off of his foot in a possession that could have tied the game. After that, Markieff Morris was whistled for a travelling call. Washington is going to have to cut out some of those mental mistakes tomorrow night if they want to bounce back.
Once again, Dwight Howard will sit out for the Wizards with a back injury. For the Clippers, Luc Richard Mbah a Moute is out with a left knee injury.
Don’t sleep on Montrezl Harrell
Harrell is averaging 13.6 points per game and just went off for a career-high 30 points, helping his team secure a win against the Houston Rockets (his former team) on Friday night. He went 8-for-13 from the floor and was 14-for-15 from the free-throw line. As a result of that game, he has got plenty of momentum going into this game against Washington.
What do Washington need to do in order to bounce back?
If you stayed up for the game last Friday night, you would have seen the Wizards blow multiple opportunities to win. So, it wasn’t a surprise that Wizards players were angry after their 116-112 loss. Beal and Wall were quite open and colorful with the media regarding their feelings.
”We suck right now,” Beal said. “I feel like sometimes we have our own agendas on the floor. We complain about shots or complain about playing time; whatever it may be. We’re worried about the wrong s***.”
Added John Wall. “Everyone has their own agenda.” “We’ve got guys that are worrying about not getting shots and where the ball is going on the offensive end. We shouldn’t worry about that. No matter if you’re missing or making shots, you gotta be able to compete on the other end. If you can’t do it on both ends of the floor, then you don’t need to be playing.”
The Wizards are only five games in so hopefully they can bounce back and recover from the current two-game losing streak that they have had.
