Wizards Begin Four-Game West Coast Swing Tuesday

A key four game west coast road swing begins tomorrow night in Sacramento against the Kings. The Wizards follow that up with three games in four days, at Portland on Thursday, in LA against the Lakers on Friday and Sunday in Denver. Washington then returns home for three games next week at the Verizon Center.

Heading into Monday night’s action, the Wizards are all alone in second place in the Southeast Division with a record of 35-31. More importantly, Washington is in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, only trailing third place Toronto by 2.5 games. The Wizards are tied with sixth place Brooklyn in the loss column, but lead the Nets by a full game with two more victories.

Washington is among the strongest in the Division on the perimeter with John Wall, Bradley Beal and Trevor Ariza. As Nene continues to recover from injury, Marcin Gortat has proven to be one of the most important acquisitions in the Association this season. It’s scary to think where the team would be in the paint without the Polish enforcer. The Wizards have also benefitted from veterans added to the club, Al Harrington, Andre Miller and Drew Gooden.
