TJ Warren scored 40 points when the Suns beat the Wizards 122-116 on Nov. 1 in Washington.


Washington (13-11) has won three of its last five games and is the only team in the Southeast Division with a winning record. The Wizards split the first two games of their current five-game road trip, earning a 106-92 victory at Portland on Tuesday.

Guard Bradley Beal had a career-high 51 points and made a career-high 21 field goals against the Trail Blazers....

“I came into the game with the mindset of being aggressive, especially coming off the game last night and the way I played the last four or five games,” Beal said after his 51-point outburst. “I was just playing freely and having fun. I’ve been thinking way too much.”

Beal leads the Wizards with a 23.3-point scoring average


I imagine JJ will start and guard Beal.

Point guard John Wall is second on the Wizards in scoring at 20.3 points a game, but he has missed six games and remains sidelined because of left knee inflammation that was treated with a platelet-rich plasma injection. The Wizards are 3-3 with Tim Frazier starting in Wall’s place.


No Wall, so the PG matchup shouldn't be that lopsided.

With Booker out I want to see Bender become more aggressive. Let him take 8-10 shots. Give him a few touches in the post too.

Overall I don't expect us to win a single game while Booker is out, so yeah.

Word. Would also accept glimpses of an offensive game from Marquese. Is no one willing to play one-on-one with him after practice? He must have some O game, right?

I think we have good match ups that we can win this game.

Jackson defense on Beal and Warren v Porter head to head.

If they can go our way we have the bench depth and home advantage.

Good game. Ya'll got this W. Wizards don't handle prosperity well. See the W against the Pistons followed up by the epic loss at Utah.

Time for Warren to show he’s capable of stepping up as a #1 if needed temporarily.

We're 0-5 without Booker in the last 15 months.

I think James, Monroe, Dudley will step up during this stretch to get us a couple of wins.

He stepped up as the #1 last time they played. Tougher to step up as a #1 though when there are fewer scoring options. Easier for Book to step up with Warren around and Warren to step up with Booker around, but when one is out, the opposing defense can throw most all their attention on one guy.

Mike James to shoot 15 times, what are the odds for this?

No shooters, could get ugly out there. But excited for Jackson and Warren's opportunity.

I think he'd be a close 2nd for FGA's tonight. If Warren shoots 20 times tonight, I expect Mike James will be at the 18FGA mark.

She sings like Brandon Knight plays.

Did Chandler expect to be traded today?

Return to Phoenix Suns
