I’m confident that the Wizards will take care of business at home tonight. Sheridan favors the Wiz by 2 points…barely, what do NBA teams get for home court advantage these days? The over/under is 199.5 – Take the over. Prediction: Wizards 113 – Magic 98
- Haywood’s true test, a match-up against Dwight Howard. D-How is going to get his, but Brendan must keep him off the O-boards. They can’t afford to slow down the game and give the Magic second chances.
- 3-Pointers – not ideal that the team needs to shoot their way out of a slump in the 3rd game of the season, but that’s how it’s gotta be – I’m sure La Bomba would’ve helped, I still think we got hosed on that trade….(then again, I’m not so sure after looking at this picture – popped collar jean jacket? Really?)
- Fast Start - after a slow 1st quarter for both teams last night (Celts were up 21-18), the Wizards were outscored 22-8 in the first 7 minutes of the 2nd quarter. Getting what will be a restless home crowd into the game early could be the most important factor.
