After a meaningful day off the court, the Golden State Warriors are in D.C. for a fun showdown against the Washington Wizards. Both teams are playing strong basketball: Golden State has won three straight, while Washington has won 10 of their last 13, and has looked excellent despite All-Star John Wall being out with an injury.
Which means, unfortunately, that we won’t get to relieve the epic duel between Wall and Stephen Curry from two years ago.
For the Warriors, look for Kevin Durant to have a big game, as he is back home, and spent yesterday with kids from his hometown. You can also expect more JaVale McGee, who is once again in the starting lineup.

For the Wizards, keep your eye on Bradley Beal, who, fresh off his first All-Star appearance, has been playing beautifully. Tomas Satoransky, who has stepped into the starting lineup in Wall’s absence, has also been huge for Washington, and has been a lot of fun to watch.
Both teams are built to score the ball, and can really lock down on defense when they decide to. This should be a fun one.
