Wizards will play two preseason games at the Verizon Center, seven total
The Washington Wizards’ 2010-11 preseason schedule was announced on Wednesday afternoon.
Wall and the Wiz will start in Dallas on October 5th with a visit to Caron Butler, Brendan Haywood, DeShawn Stevenson and the rest of the Mavericks. The team will then go to Cleveland for a game against the Cavaliers on October 7th … seems fitting to stop by the old rivalry stomping grounds and the site where Antawn Jamison injured his shoulder in last year’s preseason. The Gentleman Jamison is still a member of the Cavaliers by the way … and that’s still weird.
Then it’s on to Chicago for a game against the Bulls on the 8th, back to D.C. for a match against the Atlanta Hawks on the 12th (a Tuesday for those who like to plan ahead), a matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks will also come at the Verizon on the following Thursday, Wall will make his NBA debut at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks on the 17th, and the Wizards will round out their preseason slate in a game against the Detroit Pistons in Toledo, Ohio on October 19th. What’s with all the Ohio appearances?
The Wizards will open the 2010-11 NBA season in Orlando against the Magic on October 28th; the remainder of the regular season schedule will be announced next Tuesday.
Get ready for folks … it’s going to be Wall-Nuts.
