Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
An absolute takeover from Khris Middleton today. His first 40 piece since game 4 of the NBA Finals last year.
But, since playoff numbers don’t count it’s actually his 5th career 40 point game, first since 2/24/20 vs Wizards – 6:05 PM

I like starting Kristaps Porzingis at center because it allows Daniel Gafford not to pick up fouls in the opening minutes.
I am looking forward to the Kyle Kuzma, Kristaps Porzingis, and Daniel Gafford frontcourt. Bet Bradley Beal is too. – 5:42 PM

The time has come. Kristaps Porzingis will wear the Wizards uniform for the first time since he traded. At this stage of the season his return means a lot to the Wizards.
“We’re excited to see how he fits, how he impacts the game”, coach Unseld jr said.

Wes Unseld Jr. will not reveal the Wizards’ starters yet. My guess is Kristaps Porzingis in at the 5 alongside Kyle Kuzma at the 4 and KCP stays at the 3, but we’ll know for sure about 30 min before tipoff. – 4:20 PM

Nets are below .500 for the first time since Oct 27 (2-3). They’re the 9-seed with only 2.5 games on the 11-seed Wizards.
And with 17 must-win games remaining: Kyrie is still part-time and Simmons is weeks away. pic.twitter.com/PL9tSLg4663:41 PM
