GT #25: Wizards @ Suns 9 PM (NBCSW/1500 AM) 

Post#1 » by FAH1223 » Thu Dec 7, 2017 4:12 pm

YOUR Washington Bullets ARE 13-11!

They continue the west coast swing with a visit to Phoenix. If you'll re-call, the Wiz were up 22 points on them in DC and blew that lead in one of the worst performances of the season. Perhaps, the #1 choke of the season. TJ Warren dropped 40 points and was unstoppable for some reason.

Brad Beal dropped 51 points last game. The Wiz avenged their choke job against the Blazers. Can they do the same with the Suns? Or will the Wiz not handle prosperity well and take another bad L?

I'm not optimistic!

Wiz might want to try guarding TJ Warren for a change, this game. At this point, Josh Jackson is a wet behind his ears rookie, but ya never know when he's going to busrt out. Still, this Pheonix team isn't ready to play on a consistent basis - esp without Booker. If the Wiz take them seriously, they win, but the Wiz aren't exactly consistent.

Here's from 4 days ago on Rotoworld.com:
John Wall (knee) indicated that he doesn't have a return date in mind.
"I kind of really don't know yet," Wall said. "I'm just taking it day-by-day." Wall had a checkup on Friday, but we haven't heard any details about it. He was given a timetable of approximately two weeks on Nov. 25, so hopefully we'll see him back on the court next week. Tim Frazier hasn't played well in Wall's absence, but Tomas Satoransky is starting to make some noise with 14.5 points per game over his last two. Dec 3 - 11:15 AM

2nd half of revenge part of road trip. Wiz will be locked in for a nice road win and close within half game of 4th seed.

So the Wiz again throw out these dates that aren't even close to reality

This game will be the complete opposite of the last one, everyone will suck and we'll be doing this Jekyll and Hyde routine for the foreseeable future. :noway:

The Wizards are a hopelessly inconsistent team and are as equally likely to lose to a bad team as they are to a really good team. That said, Phoenix has lost 6 of their last 8 and they're playing without Booker. They should, theoretically be one of the worst teams that the Wizards will face all year. They have just 3 wins against above .500 teams (us, Philly and Utah).

I sincerely hope the Wizards will be professionals about this and dispatch this team accordingly. This should look like one of the Sacramento games or the second Lakers game.

One thing we can all agree on is that we absolutely have no idea. Things could go either way with this team.

Satoransky at point guard is working well for the Wizards.

This is why they'll lose.

Beal goes for 40 and the wiz win by double figures in the teens. Bold prediction, Oubre gets his first career triple double.
