What to Watch For …
- Bradley Beal might be off the floor tonight, but the Bulls can’t play like it. Between Kyle Kuzma and Kristaps Prozingis, Washington still has talent in the frontcourt that can give this team trouble. Kuzma was the team’s leading scorer the last time these two met, dropping 26 points on an 8-16 shooting performance. Prozingis had less success in his matchup with Nikola Vucevic, but he’s strung together some impressive games in recent weeks, averaging 29.0 points with 10.8 rebounds over the last four games.
- If there is one thing the Wizards do well, it’s taking care of the basketball. Washington isn’t a team that will shoot itself in the foot too often, averaging the third-best assist-to-turnover ratio in the league.
- Will we see more Andre Drummond tonight? What about some Dalen Terry minutes?
