Game Preview


On January 18, the Washington Wizards (7-32) will face off the New York Knicks (24-17) in an upcoming game at Madison Square Garden.


In the frontcourt, Knicks’ forward Julius Randle is a skilled ball handler. Randle has the body awareness to make shots while hovering in the air and possesses a silky jumper that allows him to score from all 3 levels. He tops the squad in assists (4.8), points scored (24.3), and rebounds (9.1). Against the Grizzlies on January 13, Randle finished with 24 points, 11 rebounds, and 5 assists. Jalen Brunson, a guard, has been the Knicks’ core player. Brunson does a fantastic job setting up his teammates and has the ability to score from anywhere on the court. In terms of assists (6.4) and scoring (25.9), he leads the club. In 3 of his last 4 games, he has scored at least thirty points. In their last game win versus the Rockets, he produced 30 points and 7 assists.



Due to their dismal play this season, the Wizards could lose their record as the worst NBA team to the Detroit Pistons. Washington, who is presently 7-32, lost to the mentioned Pistons 129-117 in their most recent game. After allowing 121.7 points per game over their previous ten games, it was the team’s ninth defeat in that run. Defense has been the biggest issue for the Wiz this season and they presently rank as the league’s weakest club in this area with a 125.3 average points surrendered per game. Despite ranked 25th in the NBA, the visitors have had respectable offensive performance, ranking 15th with 115.5 average points per game. When healthy, the Washington Wizards have primarily depended on the same starting lineup the whole season. Coach Wes Unseld Jr. will probably stick with the same players unless he decides to drastically alter the rotation.
