hurts both teams. Wiz get a worse draft pick and still won't make the playoffs, and costs the Celts a shot at the Bucks (and maybe helps the 76ers).

The Washington Wizards and C/F Kristaps Porzingis are in serious discussions on a contract extension as franchise prioritizes new deals for him and forward Kyle Kuzma, sources say.

They need to let Kuzma go.

Deni is a better Kuzma

Just needs to improve the shooting. Kuzma puts up lots of shots but does not make that many.

Watching the DC playoff team on ESPN. The Go Go.

When was the last time the Caps and Wiz both missed the playoffs?

Neither would start for a good team. Come to think of it, Porzingis would be the only wizard who would start for a contender and even that’s questionable with his defense

Beal would start for most teams. Heck, Rui has started a third of his games with the Lakers.

Beal would start on many teams but on the really good ones he would be a third or fourth option.  Both Philly and Boston have wanted him.  He would have to play some defense though.

basically, before Brown developed into the second wing and they made a commitment to Smart as the point guard and one of the defensive foci, they thought about possibly Beal as taking the comlplmentary role to Tatum.

Trying to be top 10 in a 15 team conference with multiple teams tanking and still falling short is peak Wizards. Now they just need to max out Kuzma and Porzingis - can’t break up those core

Go Go hanging in there.  An honorable loss is fine.
Mahon winning its game.  Portland plays later.

Bucks hit 14 threes in the first half. Not sure what the record is. Let’s chalk this up as a L.

Magic lose but Trailblazers winning in the third.  Could be a four way tie for 5th.

Portland managed to pull out a loss so a game ahead of three teams including the Wizards.
