I'm excited to see basketball again. I dont care if its the Wizards, any other team in the NBA, or peewee league. I am just happy to see basketball.

In my mind, in terms of the NBA, this year is a waste. Yes, final standing affect draft positions, etc, but there will always be an asterisk next to the team that wins the "championship".

To me, this is just a small way of starting to return to normalcy, and that, I very much welcome.

Saw the schedule a few days ago but forgot, so thanks for the reminder!

Looks like it'll be carried live on NBC Sports Washington, and they'll also have a reply at 9 pm ET.

Let's. Go. Wiz!

When you see coach staring down to the end of the bench, just be ready to answer the call.

Nuggets are super shorthanded currently, so there's a good chance that we'll get a look at Bol Bol today

Napier and Rui won't hesitate to take the most shots, but the scoring leader's going to be Bryant.

I'd bet on one of the guards. Personnel limitations are going to force Denver to play huge, and there's a good chance that we'll see something like a Jamal Murray / Troy Daniels backcourt for most of the game. Just not sure who we have on the perimeter that'll be able to capitalize. Maybe Troy Brown?

You aren't kidding - that's a ginormous lineup Denver's going with. Bol Bol's looking good - 5 points and 2 blocks in the first 5 minutes.

Robinson does his Beal immitation by missing a technical foul shot.

How does Troy Daniels score 9 points on us in 6 minutes?

Ugh, decent start but the last few minutes were pretty horrible. Nice to watch some NBA basketball though!

Down 32-19. Wiz haven't scored in a longggg time. Is Denver's D that good? No.

Denver up 42-36 at the half. Napier played well. Bonga's stats don't look impressive, but he easily had the best +/- at 8. TBJ had trouble shooting but did other things well. The Admiral was terrible, and Robinson wasn't much better.
