Are the Wizards going to make a run at the postseason? Don’t look now, but Washington is on a four-game winning streak and sits just 3.0 games out of the 8-seed in the East. This isn’t just some fluke streak either, the Wizards have defeated three playoff teams on the run. Bradley Beal has at least 35 points in three of those four contests and is leading the League in scoring at 32.9 points per game. Russell Westbrook has started to come around and has a three-game triple-double streak.
The Lakers are trending in the opposite direction without both Anthony Davis (calf) and Dennis Schroder (health protocols). The team’s depth is being tested and so is the resolve of LeBron James. The Lakers have lost three of their past four games, the worst stretch of basketball all season. Each loss is to a quality team (Heat, Nuggets, Nets), so it isn’t any cause for concern. The faster the Lakers can get healthy, though, the better.
